Oculus GO has been out over a month now and since owning it from day one I have watched a ton of 2D and 3D movies on it (usually after winding down for the day and in bed). I am certain I am not alone but would be interested to know what movies other people have watched in GO that they would recommend to others and why.
1. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 3D. - 3D is really good in this and better than most 3D attempts. 2. Ghost in the Shell 3D - Sci-fi city sweeping shots are always nice in 3D, plus Scarlet is always pleasant to look at. 3. Blade Runner 2089 3D - overall cool movie and the intensity is more in 3D in the GO.
System Specs: ASUS NVIDIA RTX 3090 TUF GAMING OC 24GB , i9 9900K CPU, 16 GB DDR 4 RAM, Win 10 64 Bit OS.
It's funny that even with the sde the image quality looks way better than my 4k hdr tv. That's what I get for cheaping out when buying my tv. Lol. If I didn't have a couple consoles I would sell my tv and just ues the Go.
I actually liked the Assassin's Creed movie. I mean, it was definitely a bad movie, but for fans of the game it may still be cool. I also liked Gamer (I saw this in the theater, only skipped around on Go).
How are the shared movie experiences? Anyone tried that?
I think there are 2 ways (that I can see) to do that.
1: Big Screen, although I don't have a PC/Laptop powerful enough to run the BigScreen host app, so not for me.
2: Possibly buy a movie thru Oculus and watch it in Oculus rooms...
I am considering trying this, but the movies are a bit spendy, especially for something that I won't end up actually owning.
But it does look like I can buy a movie in there and when other people are invited to my Oculus Room, they can also watch it?? (Haven't tried it, so not sure).
It would be nice to be able to invite someone to watch Netflix (even if they have to have their own account), but it's not an option. Hopefully they will add that.
Anything I am missing?
I was having issues getting the Plex client to connect to my local Plex server, so using Pigasus which doesn't support multiple people. But I didn't get the feeling that the Plex client supported multiple people watching a movie??
i think there was a sharing option for whatever account i had tied to facebook probably oculus account. might have been PLEX, which come with a free trial period, but i need to remember to cancel before payments start lol
