No, there aren't any Oculus Quest 2 exclusive games.

Chief among these is a 90Hz refresh rate display, up from 60Hz on the original. It's also backwards-compatible with the Oculus Quest and can run Rift Platform games through the Oculus link. The displays now offer 1832 x 1920px resolution per eye, which is around 50% more pixels than the original quest. As well as improving gameplay, this is thought to expand the experiences possible when using the headset. The new display is also capable of supporting 90Hz - the original standard that Oculus set with the original Rift. That's aimed at making the headset more portable, and the new soft material straps help it fold down into a more compact package for travel.

After a hyped Kickstarter campaign, a Facebook acquisition, several developer kits and a few delays, the original Oculus Rift began shipping its first units in early 2016. Controller tracks has been optimised for efficiency and this tweak has extended the controller battery life by 4x.

Ergonomics are now even better with over 10% less weight and adjustable IPD (interpupillary distance). The Quest 2 makes adjusting this easier than ever, simplifying it to three core settings.

The Oculus Quest 2 is up for pre-order now direct from Oculus or from the likes of Currys PC World and FNAC Darty in the United Kingdom and EU, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and Walmart in the U.S., and Amazon worldwide.

Certified Oculus ReadyTM, the G333 VR is designed with a sturdy aluminium housing and elegant flat cables that won't get twisted, G333 VR ensures a reliable durability and a premium look that matches the stunning Oculus Quest 2.

This is a developing story, and we'll continue to update it as more details about the Oculus Quest 2 come in. It will be made available with 64GB or 256GB of on-board storage for $/£100 difference.

Based on the award-winning PRO Headset, the Logitech PRO Gaming Headset is a certified Oculus ReadyTM over-ear audio solution for Oculus Quest 2.
