Meta to Drop the Price of Quest 2 Back to $299.99

    Meta has announced that the Quest 2 128GB will be priced at $299.99 on June 4th. The 256GB will be $349.99. This is a $100 discount for the entry level model and an $80 discount for the upgrade model. Meta has also announced that it is working on a new software update to improve the performance of both the Quest 2 and the Quest Pro.

    The price reduction comes about a year after Meta raised the price of both storage options for the headset by $100. This was almost two years after the original release of the headset in 2020. later cut the price for the 256GB Quest 2 headset to $429.99. The price cut was announced on the same day Meta revealed the Quest 3 successor to the Quest 2, which will be released this fall at a cost of $499.99. It will also hold an interactive gaming showcase later on today. The event promises “new game announcements and gameplay first-looks as well as updates to existing titles.”

    Meta plans to sell the Quest 2 and Quest Pro (the more professional Quest Pro) along with the Quest 3 at its launch later this year. In a press release, Meta stated that “Quest 2 is our most affordable VR entry point and Pro is optimized to work use cases with face and eyes tracking for more authentic expression in meetings.”

    Meta claims that a software update will improve the performance of Quest 2 or Quest Pro up to 26 percent. The update will increase the GPU performance on the Quest 2 and Quest Pro respectively by 19% and 11%. Meta says that developers will need to adjust their apps in order to take advantage of the new features. Once they have done so, users can expect “smoother gaming, a responsive UI and richer content” on both headsets.

    Both pieces of hardware will also feature Dynamic Resolution scaling, “so that games and apps could take advantage of the increased pixel density” without losing frames when the GPU was underutilized.

    Today’s announcement doesn’t mention when exactly this update will roll out, but the new pricing will take effect from June 4th, the day before Apple is expected to unveil its debut headset at WWDC
