3 reasons to buy the Meta Quest 3 — and 1 big reason to skip

Meta formally launched the Quest 3 headset at Meta Join yesterday (September 27). And whereas my colleague Tony Polanco obtained some hands-on time with the Quest 3 previous to Join — take a look at his early Quest 3 overview — I needed to test it out for myself since I used to be in Menlo Park, Calif., at Meta headquarters for the occasion.

After having spent a demo session with the Meta Quest 3, my response is very similar to the truth the brand new headset dabbles in… combined. On the one hand, you possibly can positively see the steps ahead Meta took with the Quest 3. The controllers are so good. And the full-color RGB passthrough is fairly spectacular.
