Meta has revealed its new headset and thing aren’t getting much better for Overwatch 2.
It’s been another big day of news and an even bigger one for VR fans. Meta has unveiled its fancy new VR headset called the Quest Pro, although it’s going to put a pretty massive hole in your wallet.
Other top stories in today’s roundup include Overwatch 2’s continued struggle against disgruntled players and embarassing bugs, while PlayStation fans may have an easier time upgrading to a PS5 pretty soon. For more details, read on.
We’ll start off with Meta and its unveiling of the Quest Pro during this year’s Connect 2022 showcase. This fancy new headset has plenty of gadgets and powerful hardware to go along with it, which you’d probably expect considering the thing will set you back $1500. That wasn’t the only big announced at Connect 2022 either, as it was also revealed that Among Us VR is launching on November 10, Xbox Cloud Gaming is coming to the Meta Store, and Meta has acquired the devs behind Iron Man VR and Resident Evil 4 VR.

It’s even worse for Bastion mains as well, as the lovable little robot has been completely removed from the game in order to fix a pretty game-breaking bug that allowed him to spam his artillery strikes. He’s not the only Hero to be removed either, as Torbjorn has also been pulled due to an exploit in his Overload ability.

This is according to import data found by analyst David Gibson, who claims that PlayStation shipments have risen by 400 percent year on year in the US.
