We are now kickin’ off the New Year! Hope everyone is having a nice fresh new start in 2024. If you’re like me, you spent most of the holiday season on your Quest 3. I cozied up in my cabin on Real Fishing VR admiring the decor they decked our spaces out with. Anyone else catch *pun intended* some fun holiday VR gaming this season? Comment with your pics!
Meanwhile December was a busy one. A lot going on as more Quest folks joined us over the holiday season. (Can we get a woohoo!) If you’ve missed the happenings, don’t fret! We’ll break down some of the big news going on this winter season as well as some of the highlights from the past year!
Some big news: Xbox and Quest have teamed up for epicness!
Did you know you don't need a console to play Xbox games if you have the Quest? As of launch last month, Xbox Cloud Gaming is in beta as an app on the headset! Using your Xbox game pass subscription, you can stream hundreds of high quality games to your own private VR theater using a bluetooth controller to play.
Feel like you’re flying through outer space with Master Chief in campaign mode on Halo Infinite or get immersed in that fatal blow over your opponent in Mortal Kombat. The possibilities are endless and are bound to get better. For more information check out the Meta Quest blog article with all the info. It’s sure to give you all the details you need to get you going.
