Upcoming Oculus Quest 2 Rival Pre-Orders Appear Online

You can now reserve Pico 4, a oculus quest 2 alternative that could go toe-to-toe with Project Cambria. While the listing doesn’t reveal a final price, it does suggest we’ll be hearing more about the new VR headset in a few weeks.

Spotted by UploadVR, the Pico 4 rival Oculus Quest 2 is now listed on Chinese retailer Taobao. Unfortunately, the page quotes a placeholder price of ¥9999 (about $1,500 USD) instead of a final MSRP. However, promotional materials suggest a reveal on September 27, which means there may be some sort of reveal on the horizon.

Bytedance, the same company that owns TikTok, hasn’t officially announced its Pico 4 plans, so apply the usual pinch of salt to this pre-order news. Still, that’s not to say the listing isn’t legit, as the retailer’s information lines up with recent rival Oculus Quest 2 rumours.

The Pico 4 could steal some of the Quest 2’s thunder if creators ByteDance play their cards right, but there’s a chance it could also trade blows with the Quest Pro. Eye and face tracking can give VR headsets the edge it needs to take on Meta’s high-spec goggles, not to mention potentially cost a lot less than its metaverse-focused opponent.

The Quest 2 remains one of the best VR headset options on the market, and its player base consists of both gaming PC enthusiasts and indie VR fans. That said, the company is arguably skating on thin ice at the moment, as its decision to implement a price hike may hurt sales of the current generation.

If VR gamers eventually switch from the Quest 2 to competitors like the Pico 4 and Valve Index, it will be up to future devices like the Quest Pro and the so-called Oculus Quest 3 to win them back. Whether this will actually happen remains to be seen, but if you’re metaverse averse, you might want to consider the upcoming Peak 4.
