I’m Preordering the Meta Oculus Quest 3 on Amazon, here is why…

The release of the Meta Oculus Quest 3 has been met with great anticipation and excitement among virtual reality enthusiasts and gamers alike. Building on the success of its predecessors, this new iteration promises to deliver an even more immersive and cutting-edge VR experience. With upgraded hardware, including more powerful processors and improved display technology, users can expect higher levels of realism and smoother gameplay. The Meta Quest 3 also boasts enhanced tracking capabilities, ensuring that every movement is accurately captured, further blurring the lines between the virtual and real worlds.

One of the standout features of the Meta Oculus Quest 3 is its commitment to expanding the library of VR content. Oculus has been actively partnering with game developers and creators to bring a wide range of exciting experiences to the platform. From intense first-person shooters to mind-bending puzzle games and immersive social VR environments, the Meta Quest 3 aims to cater to a diverse audience. Additionally, the device’s improved comfort and ergonomics, along with longer battery life, make it more suitable for extended gaming sessions and immersive adventures. As virtual reality technology continues to evolve, the Meta Oculus Quest 3 represents a significant step forward, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of VR entertainment.

My experience of the Meta Oculus Quest 2 was negative. The device arrived with damage to the screen which was clearly visible through the optics as an irritating blur.

My mistake with the Meta Oculus Quest 2 was not ordering via a retailer that accept “dead on arrival” hardware returns without making you jump through tens of hoops. My experience of trying to return to Oculus was negative. In the end I didn’t replace the Meta Oculus Quest 2 and a stuck with the Quest 1 which has served me very well.

Meta *may* have improved in their ability to sell, ship and support their hardware but I am not risking it.

Once Bitten, Twice Shy

So I am preordering via Amazon who are flawless in their ability to handle issues, returns, refunds and replacements.
