Quest 3 games on Quest 1

Honored Guest

I have the original quest 1, I noticed that quest 3 games are not available to me on the store which makes sense, however through the pc app meta quest link, when I wirelessley connect my vr I see that games like Bonelabs and Blade and Sorcery are there for me to buy. Does this mean that through meta quest link from my pc, I am able to wirelessley connect my quest 1 and play these newer gen games?


Yes, as long as your PC and wifi infrastructure is suitable.

Hey @Nohkes! Yea, essentially when you connect the headset to the PC, it utilizes the Rift software and the Quest line headsets become a monitor for the Oculus PC app. It does this by having your PC run the graphics with its GPU, and do all of the processing with its CPU.  

This is how your Quest 1 was able to have the option to play and buy newer PC titles, as the headset doesn't matter once it's connected to PC. The more compatible your PC specs are, the more intense and resource demanding games you can play.

If you do want more info or clarity, feel free to ask, I'm always down to help out! 😊
