    Yes it's cheaper than basically every other VR headset. ut remember that it's produced by Facebook, so there's a reason it's cheaper. The money you didn't spend on the display, facebook sells off info on you to ad agencies.

    jesus, what's the big problem with facebook?? just make an account which you never even have to use or just use your current account, if you already have a facebook account why are you worried about them collecting data on you now if they've been doing that the entire time?

    I don't really think that having to make a Facebook account to use the Quest 2 is awful. If you want to use the Xbox to its fullest extent, you need a Microsoft account, same with the PlayStation, the Switch, or Stadia (obviously). And, being that it is digital only, you'd need to go on to the digital only store, which would probably require a Facebook account anyway.

    All you salty idiots ranting about Facebook as if it actually matters. This is some seriously cool tech and you’re dismissing it over the notion of privacy which doesn’t matter anymore anyway. There is no reason you can’t just sign up for a Facebook account in two minutes and shut up about it.

    I seriously don’t understand what’s the problem with needing to sign into Facebook I mean for any Apple product you absolutely need an Apple account, for any smart speaker or android phone, you pretty much need a google account, what’s the problem with Facebook requiring a sign in with their product as well??? I mean even smaller companies than the giants require sign ins like Xiaomi with any of the mi home devices and Sonos with their speakers!

    I hate HP products with a passion. I've NEVER had a good experience with HP devices. Despite THAT, I would GLADLY buy an HP VR headset ANY DAY no matter the expensive price before I ever buy an Oculus VR headset. I wouldn't even gift an Oculus VR headset to anyone whether I love them or hate them.

There are no angels in this space, they all have had shady businesses. I see no problem with the requirement.

    People just too panic about privacy without really thinking about it. Oculus owns by Facebook. Facebook can access your data without a Facebook account. More over, there are more regulations on social network than gaming platform, A Facebook account is more regulated than an Oculus account. If you want use Oculus VR, a Facebook account can help you to protect your privacy. If you just don’t trust Facebook, I don’t think a less regulated Oculus account can help you. Just don’t buy Oculus.
