Should I Wait For Oculus Quest 3?

So should I wait for Oculus Quest 3? Let's face it, it would have been the first question on your mind after the announcement of Project Cambria and even the latest PSVR 2 news too.

Whenever it comes to investing in a new console or similar, it can often be worth pondering whether to dive in and buy one or wait for the next iteration, in this case, the rumoured Oculus Quest 3.

If you're on the fence, here are a few things to consider when making your choice.

How Long Will The Wait For Oculus Quest 3 Be?

At the current time, the Oculus Quest 3 does not have an official release date, while it is likely we will see more from Oculus in the future, there isn't any official word of its production or that it will even be called the Quest 3.

With that in mind, if we do eventually see an Oculus Quest 3 released, we predict that this won't happen until at least late 2022 and will likely be even later, meaning that Project Cambria could be beating it to the punch.

In fact, following on from rumours and leaks surrounding a potential 'Oculus Quest Pro', now referred to as the Meta Quest Pro, we could see this released before or instead of the Quest 3.

Is Oculus Quest 2 worth it?

Seeing as the next VR headset from Oculus is likely some time away, it begs the question of whether it is worth investing in the current Quest 2.

The Oculus Quest 2 was released in October 2020, only a month before the PS5 and Xbox Series X were introduced, which means it is still relatively new.

In terms of investment, the Quest 2 is available from $299 / £299, which may seem like a fair chunk of change, however, when you consider you don't need a PC to run the VR headset, it becomes far more affordable, especially when compared to the Rift S for example.

The Quest 2 also features a continually growing game library and exciting new features such as hand tracking and full-body tracking with some aftermarket peripherals which we think makes it one of the best VR headsets out there today.

Should I Wait For Oculus Quest 3?

While deciding whether or not you should wait for the Quest 3 ultimately comes down to your personal preference, we think that right now, you're better off securing the Quest 2.

Considering the uncertainty of how far away we are from a Quest 3, Quest Pro, or something else's release date, you could end up waiting much longer than you had hoped.

The Oculus Quest 2 is still only a little over a year old and includes some innovative and exciting features that we feel are worth checking out.

So, with that in mind, if you're looking to dive into the action of virtual reality, we'd say the Quest 2 is still a worthy choice.
