    Yeah. It was possible before but only with a very particular Chromecast. Now it's possible with a wider range of devices -> https://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/81417/quest-go-gear-vr-build-10-0-release-notes

    Finally caved and bought one. Well ordered one online. Had the rift previously. I've seen loads of comparison videos and I'm more than happy with the downgrade on some of the games. Just looking forward to not having a blag of a setup with sensors and pc faffing to play this time.

    Couple of questions. Obviously with psvr and the rift it projected the game onto my TV. Is there anyway I can do this with the quest? I regularly stream films to my tv via my phone so wondered if there was something similar?

    Also is there a link cable or something due out so I can connect to my laptop and play some of my rift games? If that's a yes would that also work with vr games I bought via steam?

    Streaming to the tv, youíll need a chromecast for that, or nvidia shield. You can also stream to the phone app. The link cable isnít out yet, but it will indeed also work with steamVR.

    They seem to have removed leaderboards on custom tracks in beat saber which sucks.

    Loving thrill of the fight still, itís hands down the best virtual workout game Iíve ever played. Basic tho it is.

    Synth Riders seems pretty good from first impressions. Finding it kind of hard to work out how accurate I'm being and most of the notes hit quite low even though I'm telling it how tall I actually am. Maybe I should pretend to be 6 foot 6.

    I wonder if itís an early on thing, Oculus not wanting to have anything on sale as a rule; I remember one game going on sale on Rift with cross buy and things getting weird.

    Ha didn't see your post about it. Going to grab it later. Be interested to hear your thoughts once you've had a bash.

    Has anyone got space pirate trainer and/or Gun Club? I really like the look of both.

    Space pirate trainer is decent but not essential.

    Loads of people love gun club.

    @Addy__ how much better is this than the psvr do you think? The wow factor wore off with that for me and just became something to show off to guests

    It's not better graphically. It's better because it's wireless. PSVR has a vastly superior game selection.

    @mangojoe

    I know the wow factor will wear off on this before long. The one thing that won't wear off is the portability. It really is a game changer. Psvr and rift soon became tiresome because of the setup. Now I can just whip the quest out and grab the controllers and im there instantly with no messing. Also I can now take it to show friends, family and have a laugh at work with it.

    Library wise I'd assume psvr is better and visuals will be as well on the bigger games the quest can handle. That being said I can't tell any difference visually in games like beat saber. It's quite remarkable what the visuals look like from what I've played so far.

    Big plus for me is for my eldest daughter as well. She could never really go on the rift as I had to set it all up after the crazies were asleep and it meant very little time. Now she can have a blast on beat saber whenever she wants.

    Yeah the setting up of psvr was indeed a faff. I may bite at this if it ever drops closer to 200. Glad to see VR moving forward pretty quick now though.

    I've bought OQ as a "family" Xmas present. My boys (9 & 11) don't even know it exists. They are going to flip when they see it.

    @Some_Goats that's awesome. Let us know how it goes. I'm tempted at that idea as I have my 7 year old son this Xmas. But luigi mansion and pokemon might take care of that

    Are the controllers better than the psvr ones?
