The Meta Quest 2 VR Headset Gets a Permanent Price Drop

Exciting news for VR enthusiasts as the Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headset has just received a significant and permanent price drop. According to an official blog post from Meta, the 128GB model is now available for $199 / £199, which can be purchased from Meta’s website or online retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Currys. What’s more, this new price is here to stay, ensuring that the Meta Quest 2 offers great value for money compared to its previous retail price of $249 / £249. This move aligns the 128GB version with temporary discounts that were previously offered, making it even more appealing to potential buyers.

While some retailers may not have updated their prices yet, here are some of the current Meta Quest 2 prices in various regions:

Accessory Price Cuts

In addition to the headset price drop, several Meta Quest 2 accessories have also seen significant price reductions. The Elite Strap with Battery is now priced at $44.99 / £44.99 (previously $89.99 / $84.99), the Active Pack has dropped to $29.99 / £29.99 (from $59.99 / £59.99), and the official carrying case can be purchased for only $19.99 / £19.99 (formerly $44.99 / £44.99).

These price cuts make the Meta Quest 2 one of the most affordable VR headsets on the market, especially when paired with the slashed accessory prices. This is great news for anyone looking to enhance their VR experience without breaking the bank.

Investing in VR

These permanent price drops are particularly beneficial for individuals venturing into VR for the first time. With other high-priced VR headsets like the PSVR 2 and Valve Index in the market, the Meta Quest 2 offers a standalone option with a vast library of games at a compelling price point of $199 / £199.

While the PSVR 2 is anticipated to receive PC support later this year, there are no signs of a price drop for Sony’s VR headset yet. Considering that the PSVR 2 also requires a PlayStation 5 console to function, the Meta Quest 2’s latest price reductions are a tempting offer for first-time VR buyers.
