No Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals, so bit the bullet and ordered the 512GB version

WooHoo!! No such thing as too much memory or drive space!

Shame it’s $250AUD more than the 128GB version. If Meta released a 256MB I would have gotten that one, so having to pay a premium but such is tech

Yeah, I stuck with the 128Gb model, myself, mostly because I know for a fact that I won't be downloading a ton of stuff to it. My Q2 was only 18Gb used!!! But if you're the sort of person who's trying all the games, it's likely better to have the space for that.
Also.. \o/yeay\o/

@TRG Could be worse, would have likely been $750AUD (or more) for that memory boost if it had been an Apple device. *big grin*

It’s Questmas! My Q3 turned up yesterday late and only just had a play.

The new lenses are next level! The controllers are great without the rings. And performance feels a nice bump up.

It does get hotter than the Q2 and for some reason I feel the text is actually more blurry in the Q3 than in the Q2 which is strange.

The strap and form still suck so I’ll be replacing them asap.

The mixed reality game is pretty cool too.

Mine's not had the attention paid to it that it oughta have had. And my big fat belly's back in full form.
I really need to get back into a regular schedule.

Looks like there is a bug in W&G it doesnt detect when the triggers are pressed... which stops you progressing in the game - boooo!
Sat, 16 Dec 2023, 13:35

Ok, tried out W&G.
Ingame, you have a checklist of things to find, which you bring up by tapping the controller's hamburger button on the left controller, then lifting up the board so you can see it.
Also, the "return to main menu" button is on the board in your left hand, too, so that's nice.

I was about 50% or so through the tutorial, and hit the hamburger button to check the list of items, so lifted my left hand up.
Along the way, the "return to main menu" button passed leisurely by my right hand, and magically triggered.
And I was given no "are you sure?" requester.
It just quit the game back to the main menu.

"Oh, ffs", I swore, then hit the Play button, at which point it went right back to the start of the bloody tutorial.
I quit thereafter.

Apparently my "bug" was that I didnt bring my hands close enough to mimic a binoculars - lol! I did what the tutorial told me... So I've gone a bit further, just havent had the time to play it.

So the Quest 2 has been sitting in the cupboard since getting the Quest 3 ... until today, managed to get the Eleven Table Tennis game working on both devices in multiplayer mode, it was so much fun!

My wife was using the Q3 and I'm on the Q2, I'm so use to the better lenses though - lol! I was thinking of selling the Q2 (256GB one), but now we'll keep it for a while longer.

I was hoping for a Micro Machine game like the one we had years ago...

https://www.lemonamiga.com/games/details.php?id=743

Still this one does look good in MR!

In other VR news, I bought Synth Riders based off Jay's comment: "In the Beat Saber vs Synth Riders argument, Synth Riders once again came out on top.", and yeah I agree it is better than Beat Saber

Also enjoying Assassin's Creed VR, the combat could be a (lot) better, but graphics for a standalone game and locations are cool!

Synth Riders : If you haven't bought the Lindsey Stirling pack, do that.. The Experience level is beautiful!

I can see clearly now in VR LoL.

Ordered prescription lens inserts, and wow the difference is fantastic... Only problem now is sharing the Quest between people.

Is it that much of a difference?
I've been playing with my glasses on, and have a micro-fibre wipe by the side of the Quest. It's been ok so far.
Mum's also been playing with glasses on. (She's loving Eleven Table Tennis!)

Biggest issue for me, is that bloody strap that takes 3 hours to get right, every time you switch between users.
I definitely need to upgrade that.

For me, yeah my right eye is getting pretty weak and when I got the Quest 3 I thought I had a defected device as the Quest 2 was clearer...

I've tried with my glasses and it's clear in the Q3, but since I've got a big face I've got large glasses and the frame is really pressed against the facial interface of the Quest, so I thought I would try the lens inserts.

Yeah the strap is a bit of a pain, been thinking of getting one of these: https://www.bobovr.com/collections/quest-3-accessories/products/m3-mini or https://www.bobovr.com/collections/quest-3-accessories/products/bobovr-m3-pro

Whilst setting up the game for Mum, I placed the two controllers and the ball onto the couch, then took off the headset, handed it to mum, and then reached for the ball.
....!!!

LoL!

Funny how the brain thinks it's real!

We just ordered a second Quest 3 for Kylie (the 128GB) so we can have proper multiple player games, including Elven etc.
