The Meta Quest 3 releases on the 10th of October and it’s set to upgrade your PC-based VR driving experience no end. 

With more than double the raw processing power of its Quest 2 predecessor (thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 platform), the Quest 3 is set to offer a massively improved visual experience.  

Although native driving games were thin on the ground, with the notable exception of GRID Legends, the Quest 2 is ideally suited to providing racing game thrills via a USB-C cable plugged into your gaming PC.

The Quest 3 is set to continue this trend and includes the optional ability to play PC titles wirelessly on the updated 2208 x 2064 screens. Battery life untethered is around two hours, with the Quest 2’s notoriously uncomfortable ergonomics improved alongside a tune-up for its re-branded Touch Plus controllers. 

Weighing in at 331g, the Quest 3 is aimed at the affordable end of the VR headset market, but is set to pack a bigger punch than more expensive rivals like the Quest Pro and HTC VIVE XR Elite, thanks in part to its much-improved mixed reality capabilities. 

Meta Quest 3 price 

The Meta Quest 3 arrives in two version. The first has 128GB of storage and the second has 512GB of onboard drive space. Both units are otherwise identical. 

  • Meta Quest 3 (128GB) £479.99 / $499 
  • Meta Quest 3 (512GB) £619.99 / $649

Meta Quest 3 accessories 

Like the Quest 2, the Quest 3 will be made available with a suite of accessories. Most users will probably look to upgrade the default cloth strap for the Meta Quest 3 Elite Strap (£69.99 / $69.99), offering a more secure and comfortable fixing to players’ heads. 

The Meta Quest 3 silicone facial interface (£39.99 / $39.99) will also be a popular upgrade, doing away with the sweat-soaking foam buffer on the original unit for an easily-cleanable silicone alternative.

Meta Quest 3 release date 

The Meta Quest 3 VR headset will release on the 10th of October 2023.
