The Oculus Quest 2 is (almost*) better in every way than the original, provided you have no problem signing in with your Facebook account. But how does the standalone experience compare to PC VR this time around?

  • A couple updates since we filmed this: - Oculus has released the 90Hz update for the Quest 2 - Oculus Link is now out of beta, and also supports 90Hz on the Quest 2 - You can also now cast directly to a web browser

    • you forgot to mention that it was jailbroken, mr "we're not going to sweep anything under the rug". you could have made facebook happy by having your audience actually buy this thing and be happy with it

    • Very late

    • Please request from Zuck that we need rechargeable controllers. The battery 🔋 setup in the controllers suck goddamit! All great other than that

    • Ah the Facebook yet at it again

    • i have the link cable Steam VR virtual desktop and still cant get the thing to play games off steam

  • Virtual Desktop over a dedicated WiFi 6 router is the way to go 👍

  • I got an oculus quest 2 ad before this video...

  • I just don't understand the point of having a fb acount for it lol

  • Hell isn't a swear word🤡

  • "we're not going to sweep everything under the rug" sweeps almost everything under the rug

  • I’m mainly impressed of Linus skills in beat saber, it’s pretty hard I have to say.

  • 300$ somehow translating to 350 euro in east europe, god i fucking love europe's economy

  • The FB mandatory thing is a HUGE disincentive.

  • I was jazzed until FACEBOOK became a requirement. Big tech should only have so much control!

  • You will not lie to me linus

  • Having to link a facebook acct when I don't have on makes me kinda mad when if I do get one I could get banned at any time

  • This is so tempting, but Facebook... I don't know.

  • Zuckerberg came up with this idea when he was “smokin some meats”

  • BARF Not with forced facebook account. Fuck that.

  • If you think the Quest 2 is cool, wait until the Quest 3. It'll be twice as powerful for an even cheaper price. You just have to agree to full-house monitoring by fb. I'm not too worried about it. Privacy was gone a long time ago.

  • Barely any games support the cross-buy. not "Most" Facebook says, Paraphrased "Devs can choose to opt out of allowing it" and most do. Beat saber is one that opted out. Check to make sure your game is on the cross-buy list before you buy it for the quest unless you want to have to buy two versions.

  • If I get one I won’t be able to use oculus link

  • Lost me at Facebook Account

  • Ill probably just create a new facebook account with a screen name for gaming. Back it up with some new gmail account. Basically make it so the accounts connected to the oculus (facebook and email) are ONLY used for playing oculus. That way, its not able to integrate my gaming data with whatever they have gathered from my actual facebook account. Making the data they are gather only about as useful as the data other services like steam gather on their users.

    • You will get banned from both your real and your fake as they will detect it as botting. already did quite a bit of research on it. Wanted to warn you. you do that at your own risk.

  • Great value for anyone looking to playing arcade games yeah!

  • Damn facebook.. I was really thinking of getting one of these too :(

  • Facebook account needed! REALLY!!! hard pass for me. Such a shame.

  • Can you play Half-Life: Alyx, from my PC on this?

  • This sounded so great, but that MANDATORY Facebook connection so SO SKETCHY It's seriously the only thing stopping me from getting this, and not just waiting for someone more trustworthy to make it better.

  • vrchat: does it have pc avatar support? does it have pc avatar support without usb? i prob wont buy anyway but this will definitely break it for me i think ill wait until the next vive to come out or something on similar level that has full body support

  • NO

  • do I need a Facebook account if I'm just playing games through steam?

  • Oh, hi MaRk

  • plz stop calling everything ..............PUPPY

  • This video was obsolete almost the day it came out.

  • Yeah, that's gonna be a hard no from me.

  • Video starts at 5:06

  • Riley is lit

  • I got mine on release day, I love this unit glad I didn't go for the G2. The controllers last for months before replacing the battery. I also read an article that sound like the Quest 2 will also eventually get a 120Hz boost from 90Hz. I guess is on testing at the moment and is so that is going to rock!.

  • I liked the Hacksmith reference of the light saber

  • I’m getting a Quest 2 for Christmas, but my PC didn’t pass the Steam VR performance test, and it said I needed to upgrade. Can I still enjoy the Quest 2 without using my PC?

  • I was thinking of buying it till I learned about the mandatory Facebook I mean shit book

  • If I were LTT I would be offended that companies that are getting bad PR or going to shit start sponsoring me for every little thing they can. Facebook, Intel, Nvidia's 3090 "8k" gaming

  • Linus makes a video recommending a product, SOLD OUT EVERYWHERE LOL Dude stop!!! Lol you're ruining Xmas for everyone lol

  • How long until someone hacks that thing to not require a Facebook account anymore?

  • Who else is hopefully getting this for Christmas?

  • Review the G2!

  • You should get better at the games you play even though your a tech reviewer.But you wold look even cooler

  • @0:03 what happened to that? So it's 100% the best thing ever with no downfalls or compromises in any way?

  • So where was the mention of the specs here, specifically FOV range. IPD adjustment? These are completely lacking on the product spec sheet (which IMO makes it NOT a spec sheet) but they shouldn't have been missing from a review by a VR enthusiast.

    • This exactly. especially because there is a pathetic IPD adjustment of only 3 presets so if you got wonky eyes, tough shit. idk if there is a workaround, i'd imagine there is.

  • When linus was playing beat saber it reminded me of the king off clickbait... ALI A

  • Will never understand why Facebook bought the rights

  • fuck this sponsored shit I need a 100% bias review video (edit): especially if its for a non pc vr headset

  • i heard sponsored by oculus and immediately lost interest, i'm hoping this will still address the obvious data concerns edit: it looks like they only address it as far as their sponsorship allows :l

  • Facebook ruins it for me. For years I REFUSED to go to facebook. It's bad enough I'm practically forced to use Whatsapp. These fuckers seriously need some competition on the VR market!!!

  • This is an ad.

  • Facebook has not helped society.

  • FB required? Hell no. We can hope that someone will have a bypass hack shortly after release day.

    • @Blazing Guns ANYTHING can be hacked. No one is special.

    • They are into the root of the headset, but as far as actually getting the store and such to work, doesn't seem likely.

  • I be glad when I can buy my own VR Headset. I just need more space in my room.

  • Oculus Quest 2 more like Anal Probe 2

  • Doesn't matter if I get the one with more memory or the one with less memory Oculus Quest 2

  • Can the quest 2 do steam VR

  • When I start to think people are smart, I hop on HRwiki and visit the comments section to remind me how silly most people are. YOUR F***ING SECURITY HAS BEEN GONE SINCE 1997. Get tf over it.

  • 9:49 - so socks & sandals style is not only european thing ?

  • Yeah, but we wanna see some crazy mods. Like GTA 5, or Red Dead, or some super cool game....

  • You're really letting yourself down having anything to do with FB.

  • Long time VR watcher, new VR consumer with the quest 2 and I absolutely love it. I have more higher quality fun especially in multiplayer games

  • Hey Linus and Co. Any chance you could do a build for KoolKingLogan? Kid loves gaming, is having a hard go of it and is a lil champion.

  • I know the unboxing off by heart and the saddest thing is that I don’t even have a quest 2

  • how is this one compared to the original rift. I have an original rift is it worth the upgrade?

  • For those who are weary of the whole facebook thing, heres a fact: Facebook owns Instagram, so if you trust insta you can trust fb

    • @MikeslyMontague I don't either, but I would (a girl lied and said I "harassed" her) Idk why I told you that

    • I'll do you one better: I don't use Instagram either

  • I'm hoping to get this for this game called a township tale and others but it isn't on it yet but from what I've heard it most likey in development for quests mainly because I can't afford the gaming computer to use the rift s. 😢

  • Me: Looking at my quest 2 Linus: Looks at his Me: Get jealous And one question can you give me the link for custom beat saber mods like the software you use

  • Wait did they really bleep "heck"?!?

  • I don't even have a facebook account lol


  • Being sponsored makes this video horrible

  • I got one and I love it 😍

  • kda good taste try glide in the rocket league x monstercat album

  • The beginning felt like a short circuit video

  • I just got one of these a week ago

  • I'm not on FB but I'm still getting one of these, guess I'll just make a nameless/faceless dummy account for it.

    • @PredCaliber Cool then we'll hack the headset.

    • Yeah you can’t do that. You need ID verification to confirm your account.

  • I kinda wish it wasn't sponsored...

  • What if they just use cameras on it to identify people around you find all the products you have and serve you ads on it. I am not with fb on any of my data

  • "Dude, fuck Facebook. Seriously." Ok, so if you got the reference, aren't you even just a little bit afraid, that now theres the technology, that can suck you into Facebook? Like, literally?

  • Probably my first down-voted LTT video. A review should never be sponsered by the vendor. It's a clear conflict of interest. I can live with a sponsored unboxing, but never a review

  • You left the requiered Facebook logging under the rug Linus xD

  • VR is best technology

  • the fact that your distancing in a small ass room is kinda sad him breathing throughout the video will obviously reach you duh

  • What about hand tracking?

  • I thank this man for telling me I have to log in for “sEcUrIty ReAsOnS and nOt for mining your data” Ima buy Quest 1

  • We shouldn't be shafted in the UK and be paying £299 for it, I imagine Australia is also higher price than usa

  • Can someone please help me??? I am willing to buy the quest 2, it looks good in almost every single way, but I have a problem. I heard that you can't play all games on the quest 2 if you don't connect it to your pc. I also heard that there are limitations to VRchat if you don't hook it up to your pc. I read that the minimum specs for you pc need to be either a Ryzen 5 or Intel 5, 8GB of RAM and as GPU a 1080 or greater. I am not that good with pc's but I have a Ryzen 5, 16 GB of RAM and a GTX 1660. That sounds like it should work right? There is only 1 thing that is bothering me. Someone told me to try out SteamVR performance test, so I did. The results showed me my GPU was not good enough. Can anyone please help me???

  • ryley is the fucking best

  • No cat in the box? Not worth it.

  • "Let´s be clear, FB sponsored this video" ok thank you bye.

  • If linus changes his intro music I'm unsubbing

  • Is a payment method required to play the quest 2 like do u need your credit card added to even use it

  • i have one, punched my floor, punched my chair... punched myself.... 10/10 good fun!

  • im watching on a quest 2 lol

  • How is the battery life with 90hz? I imagine its 2 hour battery is cut in half

  • Quest 2. The only next gen console you can actually find

  • 2x makes cringe funny :)

  • It's such a bullshit that you now have to connect your LEGIT Facebook-account. Won't buy any FB hardware from now on after my Oculus Quest 1.
