Reverb G2 Content Compatibility

HP Reverb G2 works natively with the Windows Mixed Reality store, but very few VR applications are available there. Fortunately a free and official plugin from Microsoft also makes it compatible with SteamVR content. If you’re looking to play content that’s exclusive to the Oculus PC library (like Asgard’s Wrath) you can use the free but unofficial Revive mod to play Oculus PC content on Reverb G2. You can’t play Oculus Quest games on Reverb G2 or any PC VR headset.

    Great, G2 is arguably the best PCVR headset right now and with this price it’s a no-brainer!

  • silvaring

    I bet the Reverb G2 gets a new model (G3) next year with pancake optics.

  • Dawid

    I think HP Reverb G2 is still a great headset in 2021 especially for this price. But it is not for every one. I use it for simulation so I’m not using controllers very often. Battery life and tracking volume is not so good but the screen clarity is still very nice. If you think the sweet spot or FOV is bad make sure to keep your eyes as close as possible to the lens. There are some mods available for it. I use VRcover and have no issue with the sweet spot or FOV.

    • Geogaddi

      In other words, no herbivore eyes? :)

    • VRFriend

      Use 1.6V akkus for your controllers and battery life is great. I have 8 PkCell 2500mAh 1.6V (1.82V) akkus (4 charged, 4 in controllers) and never had any problem. Also, 1.6V are mandatory for good tracking. You have no clue about the topic and mislead people here. Tracking with G2 is great.

      • Pablo C

        While I don´t see terrible tracking issues, the controllers are clunky, heavy and they suck battery life 10x faster than the oculuis controlers, which just use one regular, much cheaper and available battery. These are the worst VR controllers of the market, and they are clearly the result of poor camera quality on the headset.

        • VRFriend

          Nothing is worse than Vive controllers and silly Quest controllers.

      • Dawid

        Thank you for letting me know that I have no clue about HP Reverb G2 after using it almost every day for many months. Compared to Oculus Quest 2 controllers battery life is very poor, plus you need to buy special akkus and charger. In fast shooters like Contractors VR you loose tracking when you keep your hands down or to close to the headset and that happens a lot when you aim or keep the gun down.

    • Pablo C

      I also find it fairly unconfortable while standing, the cable is too thick and the headstrap system is just way subpar compared i.e. to the Rift S.

  • Engorged

    Headset with the best visuals, best audio and now with almost the best price as well. And the tracking is actually really good after the latest upgrade. Buy!

  • dustybushman

    I bought it for $399 from Walmart. Best head set out there for sim racing enthusiasts

    • VRFriend

      For ANY game enthusiasts. Any game is best with G2.

      • Dawid

        Do you work for HP or you simply are a HP fanoby? Or maybe you are not aware that different people have different needs or preferences?

    • Ace of Spadеs

      Is there a reason to buy custom facial interface for V2? or what comes iwth it is the best?

  • Pablo C

    This is the best headset for sitting VR (sims, vorpx). Too unconfortable for standing games though.

    • VRFriend

      It is the lightest headset on the market. What is uncomfortable? Total bs.

      • Pablo C

        Weight is not everything: The HP G2 is too hard on the front; it has elastic bands; it has a thick, heavy and and unflexible cable. It also needs a charger.

        • Outland1

          Does not the charger if connected to the computer’s powered USB C port. Only needed if connected using a USB C to to USB A tadapter. Or unpowered USB C.

          • Pablo C

            Not true (it needs USBC + charger – tried on ASUS TUF motherboard).

  • Ad

    Didn’t you yourselves report it was $400 at Walmart a while back?

    • benz145

      I don’t think we reported on it but I think you’re right about it being $400 at one point, I’ll update the article to reflect that. Thanks for the heads up.

  • religionBullshit

    Yes, Reverb G2 is the “best” vr headset and if you don’t mind the mediocre tiny FOV, go for it

  • rfanck

    Any of you play in 60 hz ? some people say they can’t because they experience persistent flashes that i can’t see ( but i got trouble with my eye sight for seeing from close range and afar maybe that prevents it ?) how about you ?

    • benz145

      Everyone has different sensitivity to screen flashing. Some people say they can even see it at 120Hz. I definitely see it at 60Hz in most cases and a bit at 72Hz when in bright//mostly white environments.

  • MosBen

    Very tempted by this one at this price. But I’m hesitant enough about the tracking that I’ll fight off the urge to just buy something. Hopefully next year is the year when I get a new HMD.

    • Engorged

      The tracking is much improved after the recent upgrade – around 30% better coverage, look it up :)

      • MosBen

        Well, I ended up taking the plunge. I figured that with my GTX 1070 I probably won’t be able to run any as-yet unannounced headsets anyway, and even with the Reverb G2 I’ll probably have to bump the resolution down a bit. And even if a new headset is released next year I can use the Reverb G2 until the point that I actually get a graphics card and new HMD. Looking forward to giving it a go and excited to be getting back into VR after a year or so off!

        • Tom

          I ordered one too with HP’s Black Friday doorbuster deals. I am a little worried about my order status being stuck on Processing since last thurs. Did you get yours direct with HP? I’ve seen YouTube videos with people using 50% Super Sampling on Steam and the picture still looks pretty decent without SDE, see the MRTV channel.

          • MosBen

            I got one from MS. Already shipped and is supposed to be here by Tuesday.

          • Tom

            Do you like it? Mine arrived early. Took a bit of tuning to get it running more smoothly for a laptop but it’s going. It definitely is more of a chore playing many games because of older WMR support expects slide controls on most titles but I find the community suppling G2 controller bindings to activate is a great help. Still not exactly plug and play as my Rift S goes on Steam.

          • MosBen

            The only game that I’ve run into problems with so far is the Batman game, which I think is defaulting to the original Vive controllers, even though it says that it’s set to WMR controllers. I haven’t spent too much time fiddling with it though.

            In general, I think that part of my experience is being held back by my GTX 1070. The games that I’ve played look nice, but not so much nicer than my memory of the CV1 and Quest 1 that I had used before to blow me away. Again, I haven’t really dug into the details, but I’m confident that the WMR software is defaulting to running at half resolution, which appears to be what the 1070 can do. And, I have to say, the FOV is a bit disappointing. with the spacer in it definitely feels fairly small, but with the spacer out I can’t get the faceplate to really stick in. The magnets on the spacer appear to be much stronger than the ones in the faceplate itself. Even so, what I’ve tried without the spacer isn’t exactly a widescreen experience, but then, I knew about that going in.

            All in all, for $450, it’s nice to be back to playing around with VR again. My hope when I sold my CV1 was that my next HMD would be a huge leap forward, with an impressively wide FOV, lightweight headset, wireless, etc. This isn’t that, but it’s good enough to tide me over for a while. At the very least I’m looking forward to whenever I can actually upgrade my 1070 to something that can really show what the Reverb G2 can do.

          • Tom

            I am certainly having mixed feelings as well. You definitely need to go through more of your library as each game seems change your opinion about the G2 with your current hardware. I played A-tech cybernetic which I wasn’t a big fan of but the graphics came out looking very sharp after you enabled TAA with it’s 1.2 built in SS in game. The G2 looks great with some antialiasing on. Otherwise you are reminded about the Rift as even a screen door sharpens a blurry image. Another game that played really well was Seriously Sam 3 VR BFE / Fusion 2017. Very fast moving with smooth locomotion turned on. I played some Karnage Chronicles and VR Dungeon Knight all played looking very sharp. Mages Tale looked good but I struggled with the controls to move and cast spells with a shield. I used the community G2 rebindings too. I could not get No Man’s Sky (GamePass for PC) to work with a steady framerate and a sharp picture even with DLSS on quality mode using my RTX 2080 max Q. I think I went as low as Steams 20% SS on it. Still have to tinker with the settings but man it’s a chore to have to restart that game with every change. Otherwise another plus for the G2 is the colors. I tried some games on my Rift S and then went back to look at in the G2 and boy it looked much better but to me it was certain types of games that stood out. I was glad to run through more of my library to notice these differences as not all games are created equal. Or that they lack a visual punch you can write home about. I also have a HP Omen 30L desktop computer with a 3060 Ti / Ryzen 5800x that I may try out soon. Haven’t even set it up yet for gaming so here’s hoping I can get closer to native resolution.

  • Ragbone

    Does this headset come with an emergency button that produces a life raft and a weeks supply of curry?

    • benz145

      I think that’s coming in Reverb G2

    • david vincent

      Too much ‘Life of Pi’

  • Peter K

    I like how they gave up on everyone that isn’t in the US. We still don’t have the newer model and none of the sales apply.

  • Hugh Jasol

    Just snatched it for $399 (+tax). They must’ve further discount it for Black Friday. Walmart has it for the same price!

  • VRFriend

    Old model, probably.

    • MosBen

      FWIW, I bought one when the deal was $450 from Microsoft. It came today and based on the spacer on the faceplate and the breakout box, it appears to be the updated model.

  • Ace of Spadеs

    Is there a reason to buy custom facial interface for V2? or what comes with it now is the best?

  • Adil H

    Best visual, best audio, best confort, tracking much improved, now with the best price.
    One con the sweet spot not good as other specs.
