Oculus Quest 2 is the hottest new headset to come out by Oculus, having one of the highest resolution and processing power on the market whilst being completely standalone without needing a powerful PC to play it!
But how much storage do you need?
It’s an extra $100 for 256 GB of storage, but is it worth it?
Short answer: 64 GB is more than enough for most people. However if you’re a content creator who likes to record lots of stuff OR you store a lot of movies, then get the 256 GB version.
How Big Are Oculus Quest 2 Games?
Here’s a list of game sizes on the Oculus Quest (updated March 2021):
- The Walking Dead Saints and Sinners is the biggest game at 8.39 GB
- Phantom Covert Ops, Population One and Robo Recall are some of the bigger games at 3.5 GB
- Tilt Brush is 292.9 MB
- VRChat is 304 MB (not including downloadable assets)
- Beat Saber is 571.4 MB (add in a few megabytes for each custom song you download e.g. 100 songs = 300 MB)
- I Expect You to Die is 897.8 MB
- Creed: Rise to Glory is 995.4 MB
- Bigscreen is 1.09 GB
- Arizona Sunshine is 1.32 GB
- SUPERHOT VR is 1.9 GB
- Dance Central is 2.78 GB
So overall, assuming each game is 1.5 GB on average, you can store 42 games on your headset at once without deleting any! This should be enough for most people, but if you play ALOT of games and if it doesn’t hurt to spend the extra $100, then feel free and get the 256 GB version.
If you have Oculus Link you can also download the games to your PC and play it there to save space on the Quest. You do need a VR-capable PC for this.
What About Movies?
Movies can be a lot bigger, especially 3D movies or HD movies which could take up 3-20 GB of space (most are in the 3-5 GB range).
If you want to store a lot of movies, go for the 256 GB Quest 2.
If you want to record gameplay, it’s stored on the Quest so that can take up more space, especially if you choose to record in high resolution.
It’s possible to be a content creator with the 64 GB version, but you’ll need to frequently delete or move the files to your computer.
If you’re a content creator or just like to record a lot of videos to show to your friends, then get the 256 GB version.
Where’s the Best Place to Buy the Oculus Quest 2?
Depending on your country and location, you may or may not find it in your local stores. If you’re from the US, you can find it at BestBuy.

What about the Elite Strap? Do you need it?
It’s good to have, but not necessary if you get some comfort mods.
