Meta Quest 3 VR Headset And Accessory Preorders Available Now

Meta's new mixed reality VR headset comes bundled with Asgard's Wrath 2 and costs $500.


Months after the initial reveal, Meta finally confirmed the Quest 3 mixed reality VR headset will launch on October 10 during today's Meta Connect live stream. Alongside the full reveal, Meta announced that the Xbox Cloud Gaming library will be playable on Quest 3 in December. The new headset will come in two storage capacities: 128GB for $500 and 512GB for $650. Preorders are available now for the 128GB base model at major retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and GameStop.

All Meta Quest 3 preorders come with Asgard's Wrath, which is set to release in Winter 2023. Meanwhile, the 512GB model also comes with a six-month Meta Quest+ subscription, which grants access to two games each month.

A batch of Meta Quest 3 accessories are also launching alongside the new headset, including a carrying case, Elite head straps and controller fasteners for more secure fits, and silicone face pad replacements in multiple color options. All these accessories are available for preorder now.

Like other Quest devices, the Quest 3 is a wireless VR headset that runs all games and apps directly on the headset, meaning you don't need to plug it into a gaming PC or console to play. It also means game compatibility and performance depend on the headset's internal hardware, but based on the specs, the Quest 3 looks to be a big upgrade over the previous iterations, with stronger specs and a lighter, slimmer design that could make for a more comfortable VR experience.

With more than 500 games and experiences already available on the Quest platform, there will be plenty to play at launch. The upcoming launch of Xbox Cloud Gaming on the Quest 3 will significantly expand the library of playable games as well.
