Rate this post

If you’re looking for a VR headset, stop what you’re doing. In a few days, the best VR headsets from Meta will get a permanent price drop and the savings will be significant.

Meta announced that on March 5, the price of the budget-friendly Oculus Quest 2 256GB model will drop to $429.99 / £429.99 / AU$719.99 – $70 / £70 / AU$70 less than the current cost. Although the device is over two years old, its Snapdragon XR2 chipset, 6GB of RAM and 1832 x 1920 pixel resolution per eye view make it a very capable headset – one that still deserves the four and a half star rating we gave it in our Oculus Quest 2 review.

We should note, however, that this isn’t the best deal we’ve ever seen for the Quest 2, the 256GB model was cheaper. Before a major price hike in July 2022, the model cost £399 / $399 / AU$639. Plus, during Black Friday 2022, you can buy the device for $429.99 / £429.99 and get two great games for free (Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4VR). The Quest 2 also has a cheaper 128GB model for $399.99 / £399.99 / AU$629.99, although it’s currently unaffected by the price drop.

The much better bargain is with the Meta Quest Pro. On March 15, this headset sees a permanent price cut to $999.99 / £999.99 / AU$1,729.99 – a whopping $500 / £500 / AU$720 off what you’d pay to buy it at the moment of writing.
