The original Oculus Quest was a great headset for its time, but Facebook improved it across the board when designing the Oculus Quest 2. Now called the Meta Quest 2, the second version is lighter, more powerful, and more refined than its predecessor.

And it’s not just the hardware improvements that make it a better choice. Like any new console, the Oculus Quest 2 has exclusive games like Resident Evil 4 VR that are too graphically intensive to run on the original Quest. Additionally, Oculus has made significant improvements to the software experience since the Quest 2 launched in fall 2020, including upgrading the display to 120Hz and doubling the refresh rate on the external cameras for a better hand tracking experience.
