Since its launch, Meta Quest 2 VR headset was available for $299 for the bast model with 128GB storage. Today, Meta announced that Quest 2 VR headset will cost $100 more from next month. Meta Quest 2 will cost $399.99 USD and $499.99 USD for the 128GB and 256GB versions respectively from August 2022.
Meta is also increasing the prices for Meta Quest 2 accessories and refurbished units. To compensate for the price increase by some margin, Meta will include an offer to download the popular VR rhythm game Beat Saber for free.
Meta is increasing the price since the costs to make and ship the products have been on the rise. By adjusting the price of Quest 2, Meta can continue its investment in research and new product development. It is important to note that even with these pricing changes, Meta Quest 2 continues to be the most affordable VR headset on the market.
We’ll continue working alongside the developers, early adopters, and die-hard fans who play and build for VR every day, and we can’t wait to keep sharing the work we’re doing at Reality Labs on the road to the metaverse. – Meta Quest team
