The question should be when do VisionOS applications become available and what will they offer. It better be incredible given the $3,500 price tag (before corrective lenses are added in).The AR HMD is better looking than I thought. Maybe next year. I'm a big fan of the Oculus Quest 2 currently,
That's why Apple does its Fall announcements.Disappointed nothing on iPhone as I will be upgrading to one in the Fall.
Agree on the apps. FYI- the corrective lenses I bought for my wife to use the Oculus Quest were $75. I like the magnetic attachment as the Quest lenses snap in and it is not designed to be swapped out frequently.The question should be when do VisionOS applications become available and what will they offer.

Yeah, anyone can make that claim about anything at any price.I can think of much more interesting things to do with that kind of cash in this economy.
Usually when a device references "Pro" version it usually is never built for the broad retail market. I see this so often with people on this platform who just have to have the super fast Gigabit internet speed so they can see big numbers on the meter. Yet all their use is a single computer or smart phone reading Twitter or watching an occasional video short. So some will indeed just have to have the pro stuff. Most who want VR will just settle for the Oculus (Meta) Quest2 for under $300 that can store hundreds of games with thousands to select from including dozens of exercise games. The most popular VR game is Beat Saber an aerobic rhythm game.No mention if the AVP is expected to support some “must have” (or not) exercise program (app?). Yes, given a year some third party might develop such. But somebody needs to develop a killer app for this, or it’s toast. And porn ain’t gonna save it.
I have serious doubts this will have a broad market. Unless that “new visicalc” app appears.
While I do have a Facebook page for family stuff, I was pretty upset when Facebook made Oculus users require a Facebook account. Buy soon discovered I could create a separate anonymous Facebook account. I created a second one with anonymous fictitious name and special CC billing info for purchasing apps and games. There is no record or connection between the two. There is nothing in that anonymous account that references the real one or vice versa to the public. However, Facebook does have that CC info that is real.The best thing about the AVP is NO FACEBOOK account required.
