Coronavirus Impacting The Oculus Quest Shortage.

Unfortunately, it is in short supply. Adding to the frustration, Facebook anticipates a prolonged delay in getting sufficient shipments out the door because of the Covid-19 coronavirus.

"Oculus Quest has been selling out in some regions due to high demand. That said, like other companies we’re expecting some additional impact to our hardware production due to the coronavirus. We’re taking precautions to ensure the safety of our employees, manufacturing partners and customers, and are monitoring the situation closely. We are working to restore availability as soon as possible," Facebook said a statement. Since then, it does not appear much as changed.

The shortage of Quest headsets is a major bummer. Part of what makes the device so exciting is that it is a completely self-contained VR solution, meaning there is no need to run a cable from the headset to a PC. This allows you to take it anywhere, something I have found "extremely liberating."

The Quest offers up a OLED display with a 2880x1600 resolution, an improvement over the Rift S at 2560x1440.there is another option of buying a Link cable so you can plug the headset into your PC to play Rift games, so you get the best of both worlds

You can't even order one on the Quest's product page anymore. When i checked the website today at 2:20 both products are marked "Unavailable."
