Meta has announced that the Meta Quest 2 VR headset will be USD 100 more expensive starting August 1. This means the 128GB model will be priced at USD 400 and the 256GB option will be available for USD 500.
In its announcement, the company explains the price hike, “At the same time, the costs to make and ship our products have been on the rise. By adjusting the price of Quest 2, we can continue to grow our investment in groundbreaking research and new product development that pushes the VR industry to new heights.”
The VR headset will come with a free copy of Beat Saber though if you get it between August 1 and the end of this year.
The Meta also points out that the Quest 2 is still the cheapest VR headset despite the price hike. In comparison, the HTC Vive options start at USD 800.
The price increase will apply globally and not just in the US. So if you’ve been planning to pick up the VR headset, better get it before August 1.
