Will the Quest 3 Go on Sale Anytime Soon?
The Quest 3 is a new VR headset that was released on October 10, 2023. Since it’s only been a few months since its release, there won’t be any discounts soon. However, there might be “get free games along with your purchase” types of deals during Christmas, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Here are some of the best deals for the Meta Quest 3 currently:
If you’re from Australia, here are the bundles:
What is Meta+? Meta+ Subscription is a service that offers subscribers “two hand-picked (by Meta) VR titles every month.” You keep the games as long as you remain active as a subscriber. The service costs $7.99 per month, but you can get 6 months free from purchasing the 512 GB Quest 3 version.
Which version should you get? It’s simple – if you’re trying to save money, the 128 GB version is good enough, but the 512 GB offers more freedom and convenience. See my full breakdown here: How Big are Quest 3 Games?
Will the Christmas deal be better than this? There’s a chance they might offer free Quest Store credits for the Christmas promotion like they did with the Quest 2. However, nothing has been announced, so I wouldn’t get my hopes up.
The Quest 2 Will Probably Go on Sale Though
The Quest 2 is a good budget option compared to the Quest 3. It’s like getting an iPhone 10/11 instead of the newest iPhone 15 – both are still great.
Since the Quest 2 has been out for much longer, I expect there’ll be a discount during Black Friday.
How big of a discount? Probably something similar to last year: $50 off, so the 128 GB version will cost $249. They might also offer free games on top of this deal to spice things up.
Edit: My prediction was right!
Since the Quest 2 is on sale, which one should you get?
Here’s a Comparison of the Quest 2 vs. Quest 3
Overall, if you can afford it, I’d still go with the Quest 3, because it’s worth the price difference. The lenses and optics are that much better. If you can’t afford it, the Quest 2 is still a great headset and you won’t be disappointed by it.
When Will the Quest 3 Go on Sale? Should You Wait?
The Quest 3 will likely go on sale next year during Christmas and Black Friday if it follows the same trend as the Quest 2.
