Oculus Link and Oculus Horizon Hands-On Impressions!

We’re at Oculus Connect 6 this week where Oculus just announced a slew of new features coming to the Quest VR headset. We go hands-on with the Oculus Link, which allows the Quest to play desktop Rift games, and Horizon, the upcoming social VR platform. Plus, an interview with Jason Rubin and Mike Verdu about VR content and what’s next for Oculus Studios!

One thought on “Oculus Link and Oculus Horizon Hands-On Impressions!

  1. Plug the Link into the Quest and you have a janky Rift. Then you can unplug the Link and you have a crappy VR experience. Or you can get a Rift S and have a Rift without the awesome headphones. They had it right with Rift ! They just needed to make it lighter, higher res, wider field of view, etc. Maybe now with the Link they’ll get back to developing first rate PC based VR, which will always be the best experience. (yes I own a Rift.)

    “Look at all of the great titles you can get now” he says. Most of the best VR titles for Rift are 2 years old or more. Go and Quest have set back the PC game development for Oculus.
