Fan Backlash

Not all fans were excited about the port. Oculus Quest 1 users will be left in the dark because Resident Evil 4 VR will be the first Quest 2 exclusive game. On Reddit, numerous users voiced their displeasure.

“RIP Quest 1 users, after almost two years they are already slightly dropping support…. Quest 1 was expensive for such a short period of support”

– Reddit

Yea not going to lie… I bought my Quest 1 at launch and I enjoyed it but Facebook dropping support for it when it’s not even 2 years old feels very gross

– Reddit

Same story here I can understand their point of few that they want to have new innovations with evolving technology but even consoles have longer support then this

– Reddit

We’ll see if the backlash has any effect on the upcoming release of Resident Evil 4 VR. The Quest 2 is superior to the Quest 1 in computer power. The Snapdragon XR2 processor is ovr 60% more powerful than the 835 found in the Quest 1. Plus other features like 120 Hz refresh rate and additional storage options make it ideal for new games.
