Quick Summary: Which One is Likely to be Most Favorite?
Both of them offers world class features with never seen technology.
But I think the best value for money is gonna be the main buying factor for the consumers. They don’t like to pay a hundred bucks more on something they have been waiting for more than a year.
Meta Quest 3 will be the most favorite option in the next coming year after the success of Meta Quest 2. There are two reasons, the connectivity and the gaming experience.
If we look at the PSVR 2, you can only play PlayStation 5 console games on your PSVR 2. But on the Meta Quest 3, you just need to log in to Steam and continue playing where you left of on your Quest 2.

I like convenience while I play games, I can’t just spend $500 more on a new console to play games, that’s totally stupid.
