Good news: the Oculus Quest 3 will be much cheaper than the Meta Quest Pro

If you’re put off by the Meta Quest Pro’s astronomically high price, don’t be too disheartened – Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed that the upcoming Oculus Quest 3 will cost somewhere between $300 and $500 (roughly £270 to £450 / AU$480 to AU$800).

Although we didn’t hear anything about the Oculus Quest 3 at the Meta Connect 2022 keynote – instead we were given the full reveal of Project Cambria, aka Meta Quest Pro – Zuckerberg didn’t let the event pass without mentioning the truth about its successor Oculus Quest 2.

In an interview with Stratechery (opens in new tab)the CEO of Meta confirmed that the Oculus Quest 3 was on the way, but “not this year” and that it would be in the “$300, $400 or $500 price range, in that zone.”

The low-key announcement follows a massive leak in September that revealed the Quest 3 might look like the Quest 2, though thanks to new pancake lenses it should be thinner (and hopefully a bit lighter) than its predecessor.
