If you want a powerful head-mounted VR device for PC, and you are considering Oculus Rift S, the action may be faster. Facebook told UploadVR that “Generally speaking, once the Oculus Rift S is sold out, there will be no restocking”, and Oculus’ own store and Amazon are currently out of stock.

Of course, the end of the PC-specific Rift series seems to be predictable after the launch of Oculus Quest 2 last year. Quest 2 can be used alone or connected to a PC via Oculus Link. This means that although the Rift series of pure PC headsets is facing the end, it does not mean that Facebook has abandoned the PC market. In fact, John Carmack mentioned as early as 2019 that the launch of Rift S and Quest is an A/B test on the market to find out what kind of VR device the mainstream market wants, and the two later The sales show that the Quest series is the product the market wants.
