Effective January 1st, Meta is implementing permanent price reductions for the Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headset and several of its accompanying accessories. All the values mentioned below are in USD.

  • 128GB model: Now $249.99 (previously $299.99)
  • 256GB model: Now $299.99 (previously $349.99)
  • Refurbished units: Reduced prices for both storage capacities

Accessory price reductions:

  • Elite Strap: $49.99 (unchanged)
  • Carrying Case: $44.99 (previously $49.99)
  • Elite Strap with Battery: $89.99 (previously $129.99)
  • Active Pack: $59.99 (previously $99.99)
  • Fit Pack: $39.99 (previously $49.99)

Why this change?

Meta’s stated objective is to increase VR accessibility and attract a wider audience to the platform. The lowered pricing positions the Quest 2 as a more budget-friendly entry point into the VR experience.

These price adjustments may incentivize individuals previously hesitant about the cost of VR equipment to consider purchasing a Quest 2. Additionally, existing Quest 2 owners may be more inclined to invest in additional accessories.

It is uncertain what the impact of reduced prices will be on the VR market and Meta’s user base in the long run. However, this decision signifies Meta’s dedication to promoting VR technology and developing a more extensive and varied VR community.
