Oculus Quest 2 is considered one of the best VR headsets in the market. However, despite the high interest of gamers for Oculus, many were disappointed upon knowing that its access to Go games and apps were removed.
Although the virtual reality experience for Oculus Quest 2 is impressive, and its hardware is powerful, there is one thing it cannot do: access to the library of games and apps in Oculus Go.
On Twitter, someone asked Oculus CTO John Carmack why they are unable to find the drop-down menu to access the library. The executive's answer is very much unexpected, saying that the company removed support for the Go library on the Quest 2. Carmack said that he “totally lost the internal debate over backwards compatibility” which manifest that it was a struggle and a battle to get it, only to end up losing on the end.
Support was remove on Quest 2. I totally lost the internal debate over backwards compatibility. — John Carmack (@ID_AA_Carmack) October 15, 2020
