Oculus Quest – VR done right

I’ve been interested in VR for quite some time now. While I did not back the first Oculus Rift on Kickstarter I later got the second dev-version and since then have bought HTC Vive, Sony PSVR and Oculus Go.

All these devices have been good or great but all with various drawbacks. The Oculus Rift DK2 was still an dev-device in a time when VR was not yet ready for prime time. The HTC Vive was a revelation but forced me to dedicate a whole room for it with the lighthouses and had big bulky cables. Sony PSVR was ok but felt limited compared to the HTC Vive and Oculus Go simply was not powerful enough.

2019 turned out though to be a great year for VR with a bunch of cool headsets from various companies. The headset I choose to buy though was the Oculus Quest, not because it on paper was the most powerful or the cheapest, but because it looked like it had the perfect balance between performance and prices while still offer full wireless freedom.

This review will tell you why I think the Oculus Quest is one of the best VR-headsets that you can buy even now, almost a year after it came out.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
