Do you have a gaming PC but want a VR headset? Oculus is behind you. The company takes $ 1
The headset contains two wireless Oculus Touch controllers, which run on AA batteries. Expect up to 12 hours before you need to replace them. You also get “3D Positional Sound” with the built-in headphones.
The main potential drawback of the Oculus Rift S over other models is that it is wired, which means you will be tethered to your PC. This also means that you need a pretty decent computer to get a great experience. Oculus has a list of recommended specs on the product page.
Unlike some other Oculus headsets, the Rift S experience is not tied to the headset hardware. So if you decide to upgrade your PC setup later, your Rift S experience will likely improve too. Of course, if you already have quality gear, buying better gear probably won’t make a difference.
In terms of display, the headset has a resolution of 1280 × 1440, with a refresh rate of 80 Hz. While not the sharpest screen on the market, it is one of the smoothest screens in Oculus’ lineup, topped only by the Oculus Quest 2. While the Quest 2 can connect to a PC using the new Link system, it has a slightly higher latency than the Rift S, so if VR gaming with PC is your true goal, the Rift S is still the better choice.
At the time of writing, you don’t need a Facebook account to use the Rift S. But Oculus says it may be needed from January 2023. So keep that in mind. Also keep in mind that Facebook has discontinued the Rift S, so if you miss the sale, you may find it out of stock.
If you wanted a VR headset, now’s a better time than ever to pick one up!
