Oculus is selling an official Link cable for Oculus Quest


Play Asgard's Wrath on your Quest

You don't need an official Oculus Link cable to run Oculus Rift games on your standalone Oculus Quest headset, but if you want a no-fuss option that's guaranteed to work and work well, here it is. The company has started selling a five-meter USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C cable for $79 that'll do the trick.

There's definitely a bit of sticker shock there, but I can see some Quest owners justifying the premium price over cheaper third-party counterparts. If nothing else, it'll be nice to not need an extension cable.

According to Oculus, the fiber-optic Link cable is only available in "limited" quantities heading into 2020, and it's not quite ready for a full worldwide release. Europe is notably absent right now.
