Buy Oculus Quest 2 from Amazon France

Buy Oculus Quest 2 on Amazon.fr

The topic of VR has been on my mind for a good year and I was about to get the PS4 VR, but then left it because the tinkering with the PlayStation camera, which recognizes the movements, was too big for me.

So the Oculus Quest 2 was just right for me, because it works with a battery and without any additional devices - apart from the two hand controllers, which you of course need to have “tools” in virtual reality.

Why the Oculus Quest 2 is not currently being sold in Germany has not been officially confirmed. However, one can assume that the compulsory Facebook account for the use of VR glasses is likely to run into legal problems (photos: Sir Apfelot).

Compulsory account - Oculus Quest 2 not available in Germany

The Oculus Quest 2 is not only sold to Facebook users, but to use the device, a Facebook account is required, with which you can log in directly when setting up the VR glasses. Since this account requirement can cause legal problems in Germany, the company has decided not to sell the Oculus Quest 2 in Germany for the time being.

I myself am not a big fan of Zuckerberg's machinations and can understand that people would prefer to distance themselves completely from the VR solution, but for me the curiosity was just too great.

Oculus Quest 2 doesn't work in Germany at all? Indeed!

To be honest, I was a bit insecure before buying the glasses, as you can read in some places on the Internet that the Oculus Quest 2 would probably not work with German Facebook customers.

However, I was relieved when a friend told me that this was not the case. In the end, she started her job with me without complaining, in the middle of Germany, and is now sweetening my day with VR experiences. So one can say: the Oculus Quest 2 works without any problems in Germany and also with German Facebook accounts.

The Oculus Quest 2 can be bought in Germany - via Amazon France - and it also works perfectly with German Facebook accounts.

Purchase of VR glasses in Amazon France

Which is actually the case: You can't get the glasses on Amazon.de at the moment - at least not at a reasonable price. Every now and then you can find an offer of the Quest 2 in Amazon.de, but these are dealers who have imported the goods themselves for less than 350 euros and then sell the Quest 2 profitably for around 500 euros on the German Amazon site . You can also get it cheaper ...

You just go to it to the French Amazon site, on which you can find the Oculus Quest 2 and put it in the shopping cart. If you don't speak French, you can simply use the Google Chrome browser and use the translation function there to work your way through the buying process.

By the way, you don't need a separate login to log in to Amazon.fr, you can use your login for the German store. I added a few euros in shipping costs (I think 5 €, but definitely less than 10 €) and after a few days the package with the Facebook VR glasses arrived at me.

If you also want to buy your Quest 2 in France, you will find it here is the link to Quest 2 on Amazon.fr.

For the people who don't buy, but rather rent: The Oculus Quest finds one at Grover too.

      Nothing useful, but I think I won't touch a game that isn't VR anymore. It's just so much fun to play with that thing. The minigolf game "Walkabout Minigolf" alone is almost worth the price. 😂 And now I can play table tennis without another person and in wind and weather ... just great. : D

    I'm a fan of "nothing useful", but I don't even have a console yet. Oh, not at all, one of the first Wii is still around here somewhere. I lost the connection, I don't even know what to get.

    • Jens Kleinholz says:

      Yes, I had the Wii once ... bought it used ... but then didn't use it very often. My daughter has a switch and I like to gamble on the iPad, but I have to say: VR is the best I've had so far. Especially because you actually move while playing and don't sit around again. I've been doing this long enough every day. : D
      And if you get an Oculus Quest 2, we can link up and play bowling, table tennis or mini golf ... that's really fun. : D
