Facebook and Oculus have finally unveiled the release date for Oculus Quest and Rift S headsets. It will be on May 21st, 2019. Each headset costs $399 and will ship in 22 countries this month. It’s been three years since the first release of the original Rift products and fasts forward today, the virtual headset has more to offer as it is more robust. The $199 Oculus Go was cheap but it was limited at best since it only lets you watch media content, but Oculus Rift S provides to you complex gaming experience. Oculus Quest is also perfect for newbies looking for the most portable VR experience. Both products are excellent when their respective targets are considered. Both Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S use software that tracks the movement of players and the controllers without separating the sensors and the trackers.
