Mark Zuckerberg, owner of Oculus’ parent company Facebook, has made no secret of his ambition to bring virtual reality to the masses. And, after a slow-ish start, that vision is picking up momentum. This year’s Oculus Go showed that it was possible to enjoy decent-quality VR gaming without a PC or smartphone, and the Oculus Quest – due in spring 2019 – should offer more flexibility. As well as trumping the Go’s storage capabilities, providing 64GB, it’ll offer six degrees of freedom (meaning you can walk around your physical environment). But unlike the Rift, it won’t need external sensors to facilitate this, as four built-in sensors will ensure that you don’t bump into anything. With 50 app games expected to accompany the launch, Oculus has next summer virtually sewn up.
