Oculus Quest 2 offers an easy to use, next-level VR experience, thanks to a fast processor and a high-resolution display. Just pop the headset on, set up with the smartphone app and get set to jump into VR, without the need of a PC or console.

Simply connect an Oculus Link Cable (sold separately) to hook your Oculus Quest 2 to your compatible PC, for even more VR options. You can still play all your favourite classic Oculus games, thanks to backward compatibility, or explore new titles and in the expansive Quest content library.

Use your Nintendo Switch to race Mario in your own home using familiar Mario Kart controls and see the action from your kart’s on-board camera displayed on your Nintendo Switch or TV screen.
