I’ve performed numerous Beat Saber around the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PSVR variations of the sport. I’ve crushed each formally launched track on Knowledgeable, a couple of on Knowledgeable+, and play numerous customized downloaded tracks. I’m under no circumstances a professional Beat Saber participant and I don’t play day by day, however I’d say I’m lovely excellent, no less than amongst my non-public friends.
All that being stated, I didn’t assume Beat Saber on Oculus Quest would paintings rather well, to be fair. I didn’t assume the monitoring could be excellent sufficient, the headset could be comfy sufficient, or the controller weight distinction would really feel correct sufficient. Fortunately, all of my issues evaporated once I attempted Beat Saber at the Oculus Quest for the primary time previous this week at GDC 2019.
Sadly I didn’t get to check it broadly in any way, however I did get to play ‘Get away’ from the unique selection of Beat Saber songs on Knowledgeable issue two times. The second one time I progressed my rating and handiest neglected two out of over 300 notes. Now not unhealthy.
I will make sure that if the monitoring have been subpar I might have spotted and do not need been ready to hit just about each word on Knowledgeable. Despite the fact that I’ve heard experiences from some others within the press that attaining a long way out huge to both sides when slashing bins did momentarily motive a monitoring hiccup and neglected bins, however it used to be very uncommon and might be mounted with much less wild actions.
I feel Beat Saber on Quest goes to be a revelation for VR as a complete. It’s the easiest to device fit and I look ahead to hopping for some fast songs on a daily basis with subsequent to 0 friction.
“For me individually, I’ve Quest on my desk and I’m the usage of it on a regular basis,” stated Jaroslav Beck, in an interview at GDC 2019. “You simply pick out it up and do your factor and that is the place Beat Saber must be…it must be your day by day game [or] regimen. So that is in point of fact the easiest for that.”
One in all my minor issues used to be that the controllers wouldn’t really feel proper. Since I’m so used to taking part in at the unique Rift and unique Contact controllers the burden stability at the new controllers takes some being used to since the monitoring ring is flipped over to the highest as a substitute of the ground. After taking part in a unmarried track I were given used to it and most commonly forgot it used to be even other.
Throughout my GDC demo I didn’t get a possibility to take a look at any songs on Knowledgeable+, but when the monitoring is excellent sufficient for the builders to incorporate it then undoubtedly it will have to paintings neatly.
Beat Saber will probably be a release identify for Oculus Quest when it releases this spring.
