Oculus Hyperlink, the upcoming function that may allow you to play Rift video games on Quest, is ready to launch someday in November. In accordance with assertion made by an Oculus Product Supervisor, the corporate can be making Hyperlink’s specs accessible to 3rd events, which means you’ll not solely have a alternative within the matter, but in addition the boldness that you just’re really shopping for one thing designed for the duty.

A confirmed Oculus Product Supervisor, recognized solely by the Reddit deal with u/HiFiPotato, had this to say when requested about Hyperlink:

“Simply so as to add onto what was acknowledged above, the Oculus Hyperlink cable is sort of skinny and versatile when in comparison with a regular usb three lively cable. However size, knowledge integrity, flexibility, ergonomics, and weight have been all an element. We are also releasing the specs of our cable so if a third celebration desires to construct their very own and promote it, they’re welcome to take action.”

Oculus beforehand talked about at Hyperlink’s OC6 unveiling earlier this month that almost all high-quality USB three cables ought to work with Hyperlink, so it’s no shock you gained’t be pressured to pay the reported $79 for the 5 meter (16-foot) cable.

Since Oculus is brazenly making Hyperlink’s specs accessible to 3rd events although, it’s more likely we’ll see cables both designed particularly for the duty, or at the very least sporting some kind of ‘Hyperlink suitable’ messaging.

We went hands-on with Hyperlink on Quest again at OC6, and it proved to be an superior expertise, a lot in order that it really felt like a local PC VR expertise.
