So, if you’re ready to take your VR ambitions to the next level and ready to pony up the funds to get a Meta Quest 3, we’ll show you how and where to put your preorder.

The base 128GB model, priced at a cool $499.99, comes with a free copy of Asgard’s Wrath 2. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “That’s $200 more than the Quest 2!” And you’d be right.

But remember folks, inflation is a thing. Plus, you’re getting an upcoming VR RPG worth $59.99 thrown in for free. So, it’s not all bad news.

For those with deeper pockets, the 512GB version retails for $649.99 and includes a six-month Meta Quest+ subscription.

This gets you access to two “hand-picked” VR titles per month. They’ll stay in your library for as long as you subscribe, which is a sweet deal if you ask me.

Now, let’s talk about the tech.

Zuck himself has hyped up the Quest 3 as “the first mainstream mixed-reality headset” and “the most powerful Meta Quest yet.” It runs on a new Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 processor for faster load times and crisper details in heavy games.

And get this: it’s got a new pancake lens design featuring two 90Hz LCD displays at 2064 x 2208 pixels per eye, plus two RGB cameras that support full-color Passthrough.

Even with all these upgrades, it’s sleeker and 40 percent thinner than the Quest 2. That’s like going from a chunky KitKat to a slimline Hershey’s bar.
