The Leaked Quest 3 Headset Video Offers a Glimpse into Meta’s VR Vision

Meta Quest 3

In a viral unboxing video that has sent ripples across the metaverse, the curtain has been pulled back on Meta’s highly anticipated mixed reality headset, the Meta Quest Pro 3. Shared on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, user @ZGFTECH provides an up-close look as a pair of hands delicately unveils the black and white headset and controllers from a nondescript cardboard box, showcasing their sleek design and compact form factor. This revelation closely mirrors the promotional materials Meta released in June, just before Apple’s much-anticipated Vision Pro mixed-reality headset stole the limelight.

Meta’s Unwavering Commitment to VR: Despite the metaverse not quite living up to Meta’s lofty expectations of a fully realized virtual world, the company remains steadfast in its VR ambitions. A substantial investment of $21 billion in its Reality Labs division over a year and a half underscores Meta’s determination for the Quest 3 to make a significant impact. Priced at a starting point of $500, the Quest 3 is positioned as a more premium offering compared to its predecessor, the Meta Quest 2, but it remains a far cry from the staggering $3,500 price tag of Apple’s Vision Pro.

What’s on the Horizon: Mark your calendars for Meta’s upcoming Connect event for developers, scheduled for September 27 and 28. With the Quest 3’s polished appearance in this leaked video, anticipation is high that Meta will use the event’s keynote address to divulge more details about the headset, possibly even announcing an official release date. Stay tuned for what promises to be a pivotal moment in the world of virtual reality.
