Going stir crazy indoors? The Oculus Quest is back in stock and what better time to invest in the VR headset than spring 2020.
The Oculus Quest is finally available again at its original price of £399 (64GB) or £499 (128GB) through Oculus’ official website, saving you from having to fork out absurd amounts of money through second-hand listings.
The popular VR headset has been out of stock for a while – which is why we’re excited it seems to be back during the lockdown. If we can’t leave the house, this might be the closest we’ll get to being out and about this spring.

The Oculus Quest is an all-in-one virtual reality headset from Facebook-owned VR company Oculus. The headset doesn’t require a PC or any unruly wires to get setup, making it perfect for playing in your bedroom, living room or even at your friend’s place when all this has blown over.
The lightweight headset comes with two Oculus Touch controllers, insight tracking, built-in audio, 4GB RAM and a 1440 x 1600 OLED display per eye.
The Oculus Quest is a little pricier than the Oculus Go, but you’re paying for a more powerful Snapdragon 835 chip that can handle more demanding games. While you won’t be able to play some of the titles that high-end HR headsets enjoy, compatible games include Superhot VR, Robo Recall, Thumper, Beat Saber, Fruit Ninja VR and Moss.

In our review of the Oculus Quest, Deputy Computing Editor Ryan Jones wrote:
“The pick-up-and-play convenience coupled with the affordability of an all-in-one system make the Oculus Quest the very best virtual reality headset you can buy. If VR is ever going to hit the mainstream, this is the headset to pull in the masses”.
You can pick up the Oculus Quest on Oculus’ website now at £399 for the 64GB model or £499 for the 128GB model.
