I have one too, although I find it a little unreliable on first boot. I have to unplug and then re plug in to get it to recognise that and the elite battery strap. When it works though it's fantastic (I'm not a fan of wearing a headset so it suits me perfect)

Bit of a disappointing update, seems the Quest 3 will ship with 8gb ram for the 128gb at least. If phones with the same chipset are anything to go by the 512gb may ship with 12gb. Time will tell. Source;

There was a small price least for eurpean prices.

It used to say €569,99, now it's €549,99.

I have no idea if there was a change for other continents as well.

Thank you for letting us know! 

We are all mad here.

Take it with a grain of salt—there was another leak on a German site the other day that listed it as 12 GB for both the 128 and 512 versions. We’ll know the truth in a few more days.

Store demo kits are appearing at Walmart. I think it's safe to safe the 10.10.23 it will launch, if anything it could be even sooner.

I'm trying not to get too hyped.

I'd planned to have the Pro as my do-it-all headset for a while yet, but if the depth sensor brings a lot of new AR apps to the table, I'm not sure I can hold back from getting one, keep the Pro for PCVR and a few projects I'm working on.

One last plea for meta to bring out a depth sensor for the Pro. Save me a few hundred quid (checks bank account).

Updates coming thick and fast. The evening standard (UK) has had a device to use and has offered up a few new pictures for us Click here

Really getting hyped for tomorrow’s presentation!

That Evening Standard article lists 12 GB RAM in the specs.

It would appear someone has managed to receive theirs only. Does make you wonder if today could actually be the release day link 

The only thing that it seems to have confirmed is the 8gb ram for the 128gb model and the AA batteries which we were pretty sure on anyway. I would guess a battery pack does indeed come with the dock to allow for wireless charging.
