It's no secret: the Meta Quest 3 is the best VR headset you can buy today. I said as much in my Meta Quest 3 review and while some Prime Day deals are over, we've still got our eye on several Quest 3 deals that you're going to want to check out.

Newegg is offering a $15 Meta gift card in addition to the free copy of the game along with a Quest 3 purchase today. If Newegg happens to run out of gift cards, both Amazon and Best Buy are offering a free copy of Asgard's Wrath 2 with the purchase of every Quest 3 headset.

If you haven't heard yet, Asgard's Wrath 2 promises to be the biggest and best VR game ever made with over 60 hours of storyline content. There's even a mode called the Uncharted Depths that delivers unlimited replayability and a unique twist on multiplayer thanks to its procedurally-generated dungeons and wicked cool gameplay mechanics.

Next-generation VR is here! The Meta Quest 3 is 100% faster than the Quest 2, features amazingly clear lenses, is 40% thinner, and even comes with a free copy of what promises to be the best VR game ever! Plus, Newegg has an extra $15 Meta gift card so you can grab an extra game or two with your shiny new headset.

The Meta Quest 3 isn't your average console upgrade. Sure, it's 100% faster than the Quest 2 — a lot of the best Meta Quest games already take advantage of this — and the display is 30% higher resolution with better black levels, too. But a VR headset is more than just the display or the processor.

That's why it's so great that Meta upgraded the lenses in such a big way. The new pancake lenses, as they're called, are substantially thinner, clearer, and don't have that annoying "sweet spot" that the Quest 2's lenses had. That means you can slip it on your head and play right away without having to fiddle with finding the best fit.

Plus, the lens spacing can actually be granularly adjusted thanks to the new IPD wheel on the bottom. All that's to say this is the most comfortable, best-looking Quest yet but it's not complete without a few great accessories that are still on sale after Prime Day.

My personal favorite pair of earbuds, the Soundcore VR P10, are still a few bucks off after Prime Day. These are the only earbuds made for VR headsets with a special dongle that clicks into the USB-C port on your Quest 3 and delivers audio with zero lag and at super high quality.

You can't use regular Bluetooth earbuds in VR because of the latency. That's why Soundcore has these amazing earbuds built for VR with a special RF receiver that plugs into the Meta Quest 2 or Quest 3's USB-C port.

If you're a PC gamer, there are lots of ways to play SteamVR on Quest. Wirelessly is the best choice for movement freedom but wireless PCVR can introduce lots of problems. There's always a chance the game could lag, ending your winning streak or, worse, making you sick because of the stuttering.

That's why a good old-fashioned USB cable is still the best experience. It not only provides a solid, reliable connection but it'll keep your headset powered so long as it's plugged in and give you better visual quality than a wireless connection could. Plus, it's still on sale for a few bucks off after Prime Day ended.

PCVR might not be as talked about as it used to be but it's more popular than ever thanks to enhanced graphics and a different library of games than what's available on Quest. This 16FT cable is long enough to stretch the length of most living rooms while still offering Quest 3 users the best clarity available for PCVR games.

Once you've got your headset accessories done, it's time to move on to the controller. The Meta Quest 3's new controllers are smaller and sleeker than ever, ditching that annoying tracking ring for some AI-powered tracking goodness.

But there's nothing quite like a set of grips for even the best VR controllers. These AMVR Quest 3 controller grips are on sale for 15% off even after Prime Big Deal Days ended and they're the best controller grips I've ever used. Just make sure to click that coupon button before adding it to your cart to get the discount!

Play in comfort with AMVR Quest 3 controller grips and gain the ability to fully let go without dropping the controllers thanks to a comfortable hand strap. Plus, changing out batteries is as easy as opening the flap and popping the AA out. Make sure to click that coupon button before adding it to your cart!

If you've never used a pair of grips like this, you'll be blown away by how much comfort they add to the already comfortable Quest Touch Plus controllers. The best part isn't the soft touch grip — although that is a great addition. It's actually the strap that wraps around the back of your hand.

This strap makes it easier to throw things in VR because you can naturally let go of the controller and not worry about it flying across the room. Plus, the added weight distribution gives the controllers a better center of balance making daily use easier, as well.
