Currently it is a paragraph on the Oculus Quest page but they are pretty different headsets in terms of their functionality.

Should it have it's own separate platform in the wiki?

I was leaning the same way on this when I was thinking about it a couple weeks ago, but I just don't know enough information about the headsets to know for sure.

@bobafettjm I think you could justify it.

The Quest has 6 degrees of freedom compared to the Go's 3 meaning you can do room scale stuff with the Quest and not the Go. The controllers are also very different as a result of that and the available apps are pretty different across the two platforms.

The Go is more similar to a smartphone based VR headset whereas the Quest is more like a self-contained Rift or Vive.
