We have play-tested all of the main VR systems, and after about thirty seconds on the Oculus Quest we were in love! Compared to every other system, the wireless Quest offers an unparalleled level of freedom, and allows you to be fully immersed in whatever world you
- It only takes about 30 seconds to put on the Quest, get the straps adjusted, and set up a few playing space — no matter where you are.
- You can get in and out of experiences ridiculously quickly, without the system being fuss – perfect for a party.
- VR should not take half an hour or 15 minutes to get set up.
- Recommended – 2 meters x 2 meters or 6.5 feet x 6.5 feet
- We’ve chosen to focus on the Oculus Quest as we feel that it is by far the best currently available VR system on the market. A major part of this is the fact that’s it’s wireless! This gives you the VR experience, putting the more expensive systems to shame.
- Also the Oculus Quest is ideal as a rental unit. It’s extremely quick to set up and get playing – which is what you want to be doing!
- You may have heard that the Quest’s graphic are of a lower resolution that other formats, and this is perfectly true. It doesn’t have a powerful PC engine to run top-end graphics. BUT having tried many systems we can tell you that it really doesn’t matter. Once you are in the game, your brain doesn’t care about a few missing polygons – it’s fully involved in the experience. And the fact that’s the Quest has no wires actually enhances the experience when compared to other systems.
Why Rent VR?
There are many reasons why renting is better than buying when it come to VR. Here are the most important:
It is much cheaper to rent one of our complete VR systems than if you were to buy one yourself. The headset alone is hundreds of pounds, and then you have the games. We have a carefully curated selection of games and applications that could easily another couple of hundred pounds to the expense.
Try Before You Buy
VR can be a huge expense and, to be honest, VR isn’t for everyone… you could end up spending hundreds of pounds only for it to be left in the drawer never to be seen again.
By renting one of our VR systems you get to experience a range of games and applications in the comfort of your own home. Unlike in a store with a pushy salesperson hoping to make their commission, you can completely relax and enjoy VR as it if you own the system already.
Parties & Events
Having a VR system (or two) adds a unique factor to any party or event. We can supply a range of fun party games that ensure maximum enjoyment for you and your guests.
Also, VR is the perfect accompaniment to a boys (or girls) night in. Just add beer – only joking, it’s not recommended to play VR whilst drunk…
This is not a complaint, but most of the games that are in VR are basically fun mini-games. Excellent for parties or showing off the VR format, and will greatly entertain you for an hour or two – but there are very few full-length games that you can get lost in for hours. In that respect, the Oculus Quest is perfect to rent – play the games for as long as you need to, without the expense of actually buying them yourself!
Saying that, we have curated the best available games (and there are some amazing games) into different packages, ensuring that you’re only getting they types of games that you want to play.
If you rent from us we will deliver it directly to your door, show you how to set up and use the headset, and then pick it back up at the agreed time.
There is no messing around, and we can answer questions you may have face-to-face.
This is a big one for some people and completely irrelevant for other. Oculus, our preferred VR system, is fully owned by Facebook, and many people question Facebook’s data gathering and use of this information. If you rent the sysem, then the only information that Facebook will gather is ours.
Why Rent VR?
We’ve talked in other places on the benefits of renting a VR system, so we won’t go into it all again, but the part that should be most important to you is that you can rent a system that could cost you over £1,000 for just £69.
