Personally, I own an Oculus Quest 2 dedicated to Beat Sabre. I bought the original Rift CV1 headset in 2016 and have been measuring 400 hours with BeatSabre ever since. As a player who values tracking fidelity and controller ergonomics above all else, I firmly believed that there was nothing comparable to Rift’s three-sensor setup. Therefore, I skipped RiftS and the original quest. The Vive, Index, and Reverb G2 were simply too expensive, as they only actually played Beat Saber and rarely played anything else (the exception is the exceptional game Half-Life Alyx). I was still very happy with Rift when Quest 2 was released, but it was very intriguing in terms of price. I bought it completely in anticipation of a return, but the boy was wrong. In my opinion, the Quest 2 has better tracking than the Rift 3 sensor setup. Rift was able to get at least an “S” on every Expert + song on Beat Sabre’s official setlist (including all DLC), but Quest 2 was able to get an “SS” and / or a full score-they. Combo most of. If you’ve played Beat Saber for a while, you know that the official setlist is very limited. We encourage you to download thousands of modding songs available on the internet. I bought an Oculus Link cable so that I can play all the modding songs I’ve accumulated over the years (I’ve downloaded about 1,000 songs). Currently, it works perfectly with full Quest 2 native resolution, 90Hz refresh rate and no perceptible delay. You can also play a Rift copy of BeatSabre without having to buy another copy for Quest 2. Currently playing only in PCVR mode.
The Quest 2 and controller are certainly heavier than the original Rift and Touch controllers, but after a few days I was able to get over it. We also had to upgrade to elite straps, Oculus Link cables, and silicone face covers to take into account their additional purchases. In total, MSRP is probably close to $ 450. To tell the truth, it’s essentially an ALOT that spends on one game, but in my defense it’s still my preferred form of exercise. I’m a pretty lazy guy when it comes to exercising. I tried to break that habit by getting household equipment such as adjustable dumbbells, power towers, and flashy rowers, but Beat Sabre is really the only exercise I’ll come back to again and again. format. So if you’re like me and you’re looking for a Beat Saber-only VR headset, in my opinion there’s nothing else to consider.
