Viveport Infinity now supports Oculus Quest

HTC today appear its Viveport Infinity VR gaming cable account will now clearly abutment the Oculus Quest angle through the Oculus Link beta.

Viveport Infinity is a system-agnostic VR cable account alms hundreds of games and apps for a $12.99 account fee. Now that it’s added the Quest, it supports every major angle including Rift, Rift S, Index, and Windows Mixed Media devices.

Infinity is the best arrangement in VR gaming thanks to its assorted lineup. At launch my better complaint was that the VR field only had a scattering of hit AAA titles and the majority of them weren’t accessible on Infinity.

That’s since changed. , , and are all there along with dozens of other exceptional titles. You still won’t find on Inifnity, but if you own an Oculus Quest you apparently already have that title.

And, ironically, after the Quest’s launch I lamented the fact that it was a ablaze angle that would leave me adulatory it could play all the games I wanted. That’s also changed. With the launch of the Oculus Link beta, Quest owners now have the adeptness to tether their headsets to their PCs to play Rift games — article Viveport Infinity has a lot of.

If you have an Oculus Quest headset, a PC that can run VR software, and the proper cable, all you need is a free trial to Viveport Infinity to get started. Here’s the step-by-step instructions from HTC:

  • Open the Oculus desktop app. *Make sure your Quest’s firmware is adapted to adaptation 11.0 or greater
  • Go to Settings > General > Unknown Sources to enable 3rd party sources
  • Navigate to Beta and join the public test channel
  • Go to Accessories on the menu bar and add “Quest” as your headset
  • Connect your Quest to your PC via USB-C cable
  • Click “Enable” during the Oculus Link prompt in headset

Once you’re up-to-speed you need only download and install the Infinity software and you’re ready to go. Keep in mind that Infinity is a cable gaming service, not a alive platform. You’ll need to download the games you want to play – and there is a lot of acute agreeable here – so make sure you have space available.

I’ll say it again: this is a really great combination. With the holidays coming up, it’s a great time to pick up an Oculus Quest. You might be tempted to go with the cheaper Go (which I adore), but it’s not a gamer’s headset. And wired headsets are going the way of the dodo. Now, for the first time, you don’t have to choose amid a wireless Oculus acquaintance and Infinity’s best-deal-in-VR platform. This is a great day for VR lovers.
