Whilst the full list of games is currently not available, you can see some of them in the image below.

Overall, the Meta Quest 3 is a huge improvement over its predecessor, with early reviews of the headset stating that it puts Apple’s Vision Pro to shame. While the headset is a little more expensive, the warranted upgrades and huge game catalog on launch make us feel like it’s worth it.

Whether or not its price tag will disgruntle people from making the purchase and tapping into the AR/VR market remains to be seen though.
