While the $399 Oculus Quest model will have 64GB of storage, Facebook confirmed to UploadVR there will be a more expensive model with 128GB of storage space.
This isn’t the first time Facebook has sold tiers by storage. The Oculus Go is currently sold as two models- a $199 32GB model and a $249 64GB model.
Unfortunately neither Go or Quest feature an SD card slot, so you’re stuck with the storage you buy. Facebook is working on the ability to use USB storage, but there’s no release date for this feature yet.
We don’t yet know what size Quest games will be, but Go games tend to be a few gigabytes each. We’d expect the same for Quest, with the biggest games perhaps approaching 10 GB.
For games the base model should be fine. Whether to get the higher tier storage likely depends on your media habbits. If you prefer to stream content from Netflix or PLEX you’ll be fine with the base model, but if you like to have your media stored on the headset itself, you’ll probably want to opt for 128GB.
The State of VR in the Early 2000s. After so many capable devices on the market and so many let downs that didn’t truly capture the audience they deserved, virtual reality didn’t see much development in the early 2000s. Virtual Reality was at the background in the development of new technology. It took a step back, letting personal devices, such as computers, laptops, iPods, smartphones and tablets take over, which may very well have been the right step. With the development of new technologies, a new door was opened for virtual reality, because now head-tracking and capable displays were cheaper than ever before. However, it wasn’t before one start-up company mentioned the idea, that Virtual Reality truly took off on the consumer’s market.
There’s no price on the 128GB model yet, but based on Go’s pricing it’s unlikely to be less than $449 or more than $499. We’ll update you when Facebook announces the price of this tier.
