Quest 3 passed the beat saber Expert+ test 💀


@Peepee I don't believe it, heh. I haven't seen any visible proof of that, just folks bragging about how "it is fine for them and must be because you're a lame player LOL" :)

Check out the latest reply from an actual developer from one of the most popular Quest athletic games, and their opinion: https://communityforums.atmeta.com/t5/Get-Help/Quest-3-Controller-Tracking-Issues/m-p/1098806/emcs_t/S2h8ZW1haWx8dG9waWNfc3Vic2NyaXB0aW9ufExPQ1hWNjFXNDBQR05OfDEwOTg4MDZ8U1VCU0NSSVBUSU9OU3xoSw#M240556

They were involved or consulted in the development process of the Quest 3 *at all.*


The don't buy the Quest 3 link is completely irrelevant, was created before the Quest 3 even came out and was locked because it has incorrect information in it.
How about removing it from this article for doing the same, it doesn't help at all.

As for the rest, the majority of complaints as you say are from pro / hardcore gamers. People who play things like Beatsaber at that level are most often using a Quest 3 with PCVR which has added latency, even with Quest2.
The standalone version of Beatsaber doesn't suffer anywhere near the same number of complaints, especially for people who play up to Expert level. I'm not an expert+ player so I can't say but having played plenty of songs at Expert level in GOOD lighting on Quest 3 once I got used to the weight difference of the new controllers, and I honestly believe that's a factor because my first tries in crappy lighting on an overcast day, were night and day in the scores and number of misses I was getting to what I achieve now.
