  • AU$479 on Amazon with free shipping, works out almost the same with exchange rate

    • It comes to around $500 AUD when they remove AU GST and add 15% NZ GST which is more around NZ$550 when ordered from Amazon.

  • Last day to use the discount code

      That's for the 5% off code. The $10 off and 10% off both finish on the 10th of May.

      • Ah, good to know

    I'd recommend getting a replacement head strap because the head strap that comes with it has zero padding and kinda sucks, and even though the unit is relatively light (compared to PSVR it's a feather) the strap still isn't good for those long sessions chasing high scores in Beat Sabre.
    I got this one which is really comfy https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B098JTDPQC

    I wear glasses and even though it comes with a glasses spacer I still bought some 3rd party spacers just for that added layer of protection and piece of mind that my lenses weren't going to touch the lenses on the unit and scratch them. These work a treat and the silicon cover that comes with them blocks out all external light that leaks in from around the nose area https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B08TZXWYSP

    Also if you have a VR capable PC I'd recommend subbing to Luke Ross on Patreon for $15.50, he's a modder who does amazing work making non VR games playable in VR. So far he's done Read Dead Redemption 2, GTA V and Cyberpunk 2077 with Elden Ring coming soon and his mods are the best by a country mile. I recommend subbing for one month to get access to his mods then cancelling, you can probably get them elsewhere for free but I prefer supporting people like him and leaving my pirating for companies like EA and Ubisoft.

      Just beware that while a replacement elite head strap is recommended, Oculus' (or is it Meta now) own elite head strap is prone to breakage after a few months. Apparently the 3rd-party "elite" (e.g. Kiwi, BoboVR) replacement straps are more durable.

      Do some research on the Oculus subreddit before you buy.

    • Seconded, an upgraded headstrap is definitely a first recommended buy for a Quest 2. I've got a BoboVR m2 and a goMRVR. Both Halo style straps which put the weight more on the top of your head and the back together. So much more comfortable than the stock one and you don't end up with panda eyes from the pressure it puts around the more tender skin around your eyes, allows for longer gaming sessions as well as a sharper more stable image(as there is less movement)

      Second upgrade I loved is knuckle straps, as that way you can let go of your controllers which allows for more realism and presence.

      If anyone needs an referral code for a free $30 USD to buy games on the Oculus Store send me a private message.

      Oh and odeals.net is a great place to track prices for games. Also make sure you load on Applab, there are tonnes of free, legal games there

  • I had HP mixed reality headset and would get nausea after playing more than 10 to 15 minutes. Is it still the same with VRs or have they improved to reduce nausea?

      It's more the games than the hardware that are making you feel sick. The Quest store has ratings for comfort levels of games going from green for comfortable up to orange for intense, there are lists on Steam as well rating the comfort levels of individual VR titles.

      Lots of VR titles have customizable comfort settings in them now as well letting you change the way you move and turn in the game world, teleport to move for example is a lot easier on the stomach for most people new to VR than your standard movement like you'd find in a Call of Duty game is.

      I use Phenergan 10mg tablets when I'm planning on playing a game I know is going to make me queasy. They're an antihistamine but are also used for travel sickness, sea sickness etc, and they do a good job. Cheap as chips as well I think I paid under $20 for 50 tablets.

      • True for the quest but since the HP unit runs off a PC hardware can be a big issue with motion sickness.

        • From all the articles I've read on the subject modern hardware appears to be only a minor factor and it's mostly down to the software. If you've read different then point me in the right direction as I'm always keen to learn more about this.

          • @HmmYepNah: Read nothing just saying from experience. Yes modern hardware like a 30 series nvidia but if ToFast plugged it into an older PC he would of gotten low frame rate and thats going to make you feel sick maybe not motion sickness as such but sickness no less.
