I just watched Meta Connect 2023, where the Quest 3 VR glasses were also presented. I have been the happy owner of two Quest 2 glasses for two years, which I use to play VR games with my kids.
If you like computer games and are getting bored of 2D, you have to try playing in VR. When I first picked up the Quest 2, I knew from the interactive setup that VR was the next big thing. Playing in 3D, standing up or even with slight movements and a panoramic view is simply amazing. And the Quest 3 is currently the best all-in-one VR headset that you can get for “only” 550 euros.

I linked you to the 512 GB variant above because I think it is the better choice. The 128 GB is clearly too small if you want to seriously use the glasses. This is for everyone who still wants the smaller version linked here.

Presentation at Meta Connect 3
Because of my enjoyment of VR and the Quest 2, I was really interested in getting my hands on the Quest 3 early - of course also to write a few reports and guides about it here on the blog. I was even so motivated that I... Keynote Watching “Meta Connect 2023” with Mark Zuckerberg – a real sacrifice for me.
And as far as I have seen, all the rumors that were read in advance have come true. The first testers are also very enthusiastic about the high resolution, the fast GPU and the thinner design. But more on that in another post.
Where can you buy Quest 3?
The Quest 3 is scheduled to ship on October 10.10.2023, 3, but you can pre-order the Quest XNUMX now. The options where you can buy them are as follows:
- directly from Meta in the store
- on Amazon in the meta shop:
If you ask me where it's better to buy Quest 3: In principle it doesn't matter. It would be great for me if you ordered from Amazon, as I would then get a few euros as an affiliate to continue running my blog. (Thanks if you use Amazon!)
128 GB or 512 GB of storage – which variant should you choose?
The 512 GB version makes sense if you want to have a lot of games installed at the same time and especially if you like to play AAA games, as these quickly take up space of 40 GB or more. Especially since the games require larger graphics files than the Quest 2 due to the high resolution, the internal memory is likely to fill up faster than you think.
Even if you want to record videos, 128 GB is far too little. In my opinion, the 150 euro surcharge for the 4x memory is a fair price for the memory upgrade.
