Although detailed specifications such as battery life, charge time and resolution for the Meta Quest 3 are still under wraps, pre-orders for the Oculus Quest 3 are now live.

In this guide, we'll explore all the vital information about the Meta Quest 3 pre-order so you can your hands on the VR headset as soon as possible.

Where can you pre-order Meta Quest 3?

You will be able to pre-order Meta Quest 3 on Amazon, Oculus Store and Best Buy once pre-orders become available, which is rumoured to be on September 27, 2023.

The 128 GB Meta Quest 3 model is already listed on Best Buy, but the option to actually pre-order the headset is not available at this time. However, the retailer's website allows you to sign up to be notified when the headset becomes available for pre-order.

The Meta Quest 3 was briefly listed on the Canadian Amazon website before being removed. It is also listed on the German Amazon website. This suggests that the Quest 3 will also be available for pre-order on Amazon.

You will also be able to pre-order today at Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Walmart in the US; Currys PC World and FNAC Darty in the UK and EU; Bic Camera, Yamada Denki, Yodobashi Camera and GEO in Japan.

When can you pre-order Meta Quest 3?

Pre-orders for the Meta Quest 3 are anticipated to commence on the reveal date of September 27, 2023.

The accidental Amazon listing of the Meta Quest 3 revealed its release date as October 10. If this leak is accurate, it's very likely that Meta will open pre-orders for the Quest 3 on September 27, the day the headset's specs are fully unveiled.


Furthermore, the previous model, Meta Quest 2, was revealed on September 16, followed by its release around one month later on October 13. Pre-orders for the Meta Quest 2 had commenced on September 16 as well.

Given this historical context, it is reasonable to assume that Meta will likely adhere to a similar pattern and initiate pre-orders on the day of the product's unveiling.
