Quest 3 128gb will cost $499. Better resolution than Quest 2, possibly better FOV

Quest 2 128gb price has been reduced to it's original price: $299!

I have a Reverb G2. My Driving sims are VR only. MSFS is VR for most planes. DCS is only on my monitor.

If someone isn't in a hurry, this technology might be worth waiting for:

Human vision FOV - Hypervision

That looks:
1 - Awesome!
2 - Expensive!
3 - like it would need a pair of 4090's running in SLI! wink

The peripheral displays are not as demanding as the forward view displays are, from what was said... so maybe not a terrible processing load.

Things are getting interesting!

True!

I'm planning a major PC build hopefully in the next 12-18 months along with an upgrade from my Quest 2 headset. Lots to consider.

That hyper FOV is pretty wild.

Oculus Quest 2 vs Quest 3: What can you get with a new Quest?


Sounds good but not quite enough for me to upgrade from my Q2

Nice comparison of the Quest 2 and the upcoming Quest 3!

Will definitely upgrade to the newer model next year. If you add the costs of more comfortable head straps + a better face cover + prescription lenses that is quite an investment though.

I purchased the below for my Q2, it makes it a bit more comfortable.... not that it was uncomfortable without it though. Very cheap

People with VR and glasses, how has that worked out? Do you use lens inserts or squish your glasses inside?

I wear contacts. I believe most headsets have a way to make room for glasses and/or there are inserts available.

Using prescription lense inserts with my Quest 2 and before with my CV1.Much more comfortable than wearing glasses.

Though it works reasonably welll with the Quest if you you use the standard glasses spacer on your face cover and add somekind of silicon lens cover to prevent direct conctact between displays and glasses.

They(probably the manufacturers) say that headsets can't permanently change the shape of your skull, but then you think of those Asian chicks who wrap their feet. hmm?

I have bookmarked this thread for reference for when I buy my first VR headset at the end of this year or next year. Thanks again for all the info.

I would have liked to have seen a 50% increase in resolution between generations of headset but 30% is maybe okay

Meta Quest 3 will have nearly 30% higher resolution than Quest 2
