A Quest 3 VR headset at a price close to the Quest 2

In a recent interview with Ben Thomson, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, confirmed that a sequel to the Quest 2 will be launched, and that it should be priced close to that of the Quest 2. Based on recent headphone launches Meta’s VR, this will likely come at Meta’s next Connect conference next fall.

The Quest 2 price increased earlier this year. However, it’s still one of the more affordable standalone VR headsets out there, largely because it’s subsidized by Meta. ByteDance, the parent company of
