But for an extra $100, is this worth it? I break it down below:
How Many Games can the Oculus Quest 2 Hold?
Here’s a breakdown of roughly how many games each version can hold:
64 GB ~ around 29 games/apps
128 GB ~ around 67 games/apps
256 GB ~ around 142 games/apps
The files that take up the most storage will be game files, followed by movie files and the operating system.
The operating system takes up 10-15 GB of space.
How big are games on the Meta/Oculus Quest 2?
Games can take as little as 0.1 GB space or as much as 42+ GB depending on the game. According to our database, the average VR game size is 1.686 GB.
This number is growing over time as games become more complex.
Personally, I wouldn’t worry about ‘future-proofing’ your headset. The VR space is rapidly improving and there’ll be new headsets soon. Instead, I’d rather save that extra money for a new gen headset over the coming years.
The biggest games currently are:
Medal of Honor: 42 GB of space
The Walking Dead Saints and Sinners: 8.39 GB of space
Resident Evil 4: 7.8 GB of space
But apart from these outliers, most games are within the 0.5 – 3 GB range.
Here are some example game file sizes for some popular games (updated Novemeber 2022):
Phantom: Covert Ops
304 MB (not including downloadable assets)
I Expect You to Die
Creed: Rise to Glory
1.5 GB (not including custom assets)
How much space (GB) is Beat Saber? The game itself is 1.6 GB, but you can add custom songs and mods which can easily double or triple the size of it. Custom songs are usually ~3 megabytes each, so 100 custom songs = 300 MB.
How Big are Movies?
At 1080p, most movies are 1-3 GB. 3D movies are 10-25 GB+
Movies can quickly take up space on your headset. However, by using programs like Skybox VR,OR tethering to your computer, you can just store the movie files on your computer and watch from your headset (both wirelessly and wired). Skybox VR is amazing and has zero stutter, even when using the headset wirelessly.
