You can use old accounts without FB until start of 2023. But new devices require linkage.

How much use are you going to get out of using it every other month. Maybe Facebook will see a pattern and ban you the next day instead. What's the value to you if you can only use it at least every other month.
I stated an example, no where that I have mentioned that it was my intention. As you read my responses, you can see that I have reached an understanding to not purchase the product.
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.

I'm going to play VR in my room and I have no plans on bringing it anywhere else.

I'm aware the quest 2 has a better resolution But will I be able to use my gaming pc via a USB C cable to play the quest 2? I'm wondering this as the rift s is strictly pc

What would you do in my case? I'm leaning towards keeping the rift s but not sure.
You may want to check out an APP called virtual desktop. Then you probably will regret buying a rift s atm.

Sorry, it is a habit to use you but I quoted you so the others reading have the context of what I am saying so people don't think it is okay to just create a fake account to only be banned.

I have the Quest stand alone because I can’t stand wires and never “gamed”. It is slow at times but still impressive imo. I’d be interested in the new version if it was considerably more responsive. All I want to do is play be paintball without any speed disadvantage!

It has some capabilities like a browser and BT keyboard support but more of a fun supplement than replacement. Comfort will be an issue for extended use.

No kidding! I’m sooooo glad I managed to sell mine right when they announced the upcoming mandatory Facebook account crap. First-gen Oculus Quest is like a Geforce RTX 2080.....value just dropped quite a bit.

Unless this is your first Oculus device; then you’ll need a Facebook account now.

Edit - actually............
All future unreleased Oculus devices will require a Facebook account, even if you already have an Oculus account.
Given that this announcement was made before the Quest 2 was announced, looks like you’re stuck with a Facebook account.
