Meta Quest Pro Release Date, Links, Prices, Games, Apps & Controllers | Games | Entertainment

After months of rumors and speculation, Meta has finally announced its brand new Meta Quest Pro virtual reality headset. And the good news is that fans don’t have long to wait, as the Meta Quest Pro bounty has an October 25th release date. Even better, customers can pre-order the device now. The wrong side? It’s a bit pricey, costing £1,499 to pre-order. You can purchase the Meta Quest Pro from the Amazon link below.

Although the Meta Quest Pro is expensive, the advantage is that it is capable of much more than the regular Meta Quest 2.

It has a higher resolution, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a slimmer, better-balanced design. It’s certainly capable of giving the PSVR 2 a run for its money, though the higher price tag should limit its mass-market appeal.

Its high-resolution external cameras capture four times the pixels of the Meta Quest 2, while the color passthrough feature lets you see the outside world live and in vivid color.

With that in mind, users can expect more games and apps that take advantage of real-world settings, which ties into the social side of the MetaVerse.

Likewise, the new eye-tracking and face-tracking features will supposedly lead to more natural interactions.

With the same wireless capabilities as its predecessor, users won’t be limited by messy wires that impact movement.

It’s even backwards compatible with game apps available on Meta Quest 2.

Elsewhere, the Meta Quest Pro comes with a set of new controllers, which offer improved tracking and greater stability.

Meta further explains: “Three sensors built into each controller track their position in 3D space independently of the headset, giving you a full 360-degree range of motion. This ensures stable tracking across all your VR apps.

“The controllers have been redesigned to be more ergonomic and balanced, making them feel like natural extensions of your hands.

“They also come with improved haptics using our new TruTouch Haptics system to provide a wider and more accurate range of feedback, as well as rechargeable batteries.”

If you’ve ever crossed your hands in-game when reloading weapons in gaming apps like The Walking Dead, you’ll be pleased to hear that Meta Quest Touch Pro controllers are also compatible with the Quest 2.

Standalone Pro Touch controllers will be available for pre-order later this year. Priced at $299 in the US, expect to pay similar prices in the UK.

Finally, Meta announced a host of new gaming apps for Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest Pro, including PSVR title Iron Man VR, which will launch on November 3.

“Take flight in Tony Stark’s iconic Iron Man armor,” the official description reads.

“Travel the world and face off against Ghost, a hacker with a dangerous army of drones and a mysterious connection to Stark’s past. Filled with deep references for longtime Marvel fans, this is the closest thing to the game. Iron Man armor, unless you build your own.”

Among Us VR was given a November 13 release date, while The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution was released in December.

Elsewhere, Meta confirmed plans for Xbox Cloud Gaming at the Quest Store. This means you will be able to access your Xbox games and play them on a big screen in the VR world.
