Just FYI - Quest 2 (64gb) is in stock at Amazon at the time of posting this.

I ordered one for my sons birthday as a result of this thread.

The picture clarity is not good compare to a real monitor + a lot more eyes strain + the added input lag (the moment you hit a button to the moment that your action is reflected on the screen). The good thing is you can set what ever custom resolution and have it 16:9 21:9 32:9 and have the screen very close or far to your eyes and have it flat or curved …. , it's definitely a new and fun experience but I would still stick to a real monitor as much as I can and use VR for only VR stuff. But to be fair tho I only tried it when I was sitting not lying on the bed, maybe it would be more comfortable and more fun when you're lying and maybe I will try it out, idk.....
The quest 2 does have higher resolution so it might help with the clarity issue, I don't have much issue with that myself. I tend to only play games like tetris effect, and other slower pace games like rpgs or platformers while I'm chilling on the quest. AAA titles and esports titles will be on a traditional screen for sure.

Awesome, cancelled my order from the Oculus store and purchased from Amazon for $9 cheaper and delivery on Tuesday rather than Jan 23

This is HOT if you are sold on getting the Oculus Rift S (rather than the Oculus Quest 2 which I personally think is the better system and $20 cheaper)

So you like the game but just not in VR?
Correct... Thinking of purchasing a Quest 2 and trying again... Only problem is I only have WiFi 5 not WiFi 6 (Hated the cable with the Rift S) and I heard Quest 2 isn't comfortable...

I'm a Rift S owner, I bought the headset this summer, before Quest 2 was announced. It's really great and has served me well. Just finished a 1 hour Beat Saber session, Half Life Alyx runs great on my mediocre gaming PC (i5 9600k, GTX 1660 Ti, 16GB RAM). I paid a decent amount more than this deal and it was worth every penny.

The fact that Oculus PC VR is being discontinued is kind of irrelevant if Steam VR continues to support it, which I'm assuming it will.

That being said, with the Quest 2 out now, I would buy it (with the elite strap) over the Rift S. It's newer and better and priced well.

Of the Quest 2 - Which is worth buying the 64 GB or 256GB? And do they ever go on sale?

64gb is fine with some housekeeping of apps or you do a lot of PC VR. If you want to have a huge library and never use with PC, 256gb may come in handy. Think of it like phone storage but dedicated to apps not photos.

Just bought a quest 2 off amazon. What’s the cheapest link cable I can get? I see some for 20 bucks that are 3m, but not sure if that’s long enough.

Software support is not the problem.

It's hardware support. CV1 link cables are for example discontinued, barely can find them on ebay for outrageous prices.

The same is going to happen to the Rift S .

Buy the Quest 2 like you said, there's no reason to buy the rift S now.

I highly recommend getting the elite strap for Quest 2, even better with the extended battery. I got it and makes a world of difference in comfort. Also helps extend out the battery life. I’ve been sharing the Q2 and it runs out of juice quick. It’s like an hour or so battery life playing beat saber. The extended battery life makes it around 3-4 hours. Also comes in a near case so can take it around.
