“Because of how hardware gets developed, you kind of need to know what your next three products are going to look like all at the same time," said Zuckerberg.
"It’s not like software where we’re changing it every couple of weeks. We have product teams spun up now working on the next few generations of virtual reality and what Quest 3 and 4 are gonna look like.“
The Quest 3 will arrive no sooner than 2022. It is expected the Quest 3 to remain a standalone VR headset with usual improvements on the battery life, processor and resolution. Most probably it will be equipped with a 120Hz refresh rate, although its still a question whether the next VR titles can take full advantage of this upgrade.
Quest 3 Price
Oculus Quest 2 comes in two variants: a model with 64GB of storage, priced at £299 / $299 / AU$479, and a 256GB version for £399 / $399 / AU$639. Knowing that Facebook's idea of the hardware is to become the mainstream VR headset, its very likely that the Quest 3 wont be more expensive than the Quest 2.
Better motion sickness prevention
Better oculus store
A neighbourhood-like social space
Improved media sharing
While the Quest 2 reportedly received five times as many pre-orders as its predecessor, it still not considered to have entered the mainstream market.
As Mark Zuckerberg said in 2018, 10 million VR users were needed to ensure the Oculus platform was "sustainable and profitable for all kinds of developers.” He did add, though, that “once we get across this threshold, we think that the content and the ecosystem are just going to explode"
There are rumors also about the Apple VR headset, which could mean strong competition for the Oculus, and will certainly explode the VR market. Do you want to enter the exploding VR market? Get it touch!
