When will Meta Quest 3 be available? Date of publication clarified; rumors addressed
The Meta Quest 2’s VR headset is getting on in years, and it’s time for an upgrade.
Virtual reality headsets from Meta, formerly known as Oculus Quest before Facebook rebranded, are widely considered to be among the best currently available.
It has one of the highest resolution displays available, making it one of the best virtual reality (VR) headsets for getting completely immersed in a game or movie.
What we know about the next headset in the line, the Meta Quest 3, is below.
Is Meta Quest 3 coming out?
Less than a month passed between the announcement of The Meta Quest 2 and its release, and The Meta Quest 3 could follow a similar timeline.
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, has stated publicly that development of Facebook’s next VR headset is underway.
Additionally, he confirmed the rumored 2023 launch date, saying that preparations were well under way.
The release of Meta Quest 3 is anticipated for September/October, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
How much will be the Meta Quest 3?
Meta Quest 2 prices increased over the course of the console’s lifespan, with the entry-level model now going for $399 (or £399).
The price of Meta’s upcoming headset is rumored to be around the same or slightly higher.
Word from within Meta suggests they’ll charge more than $400 (£400).
The most recent release of a virtual reality headset was the PlayStation VR2 for £530 ($550), and we anticipate that it will not be more expensive than this.
What to expect from Meta Quest 3?
According to the company’s internal leak, the Meta Quest 3 will be more powerful and more compact than its predecessor.
To compete with the top virtual reality (VR) headsets on the market, the resolution is expected to be raised to 2,064 x 2,208 per eye.
Additionally, we anticipate a RAM upgrade, with a 512GB variant possibly being made available.
Despite the lack of an official announcement, it seems safe to assume that the Meta Quest 3 will feature improved hardware compared to its predecessor.
