Meta Will Increase Quest 2's Prices & Offer Beat Saber to New Users for Free

The headsets will become $100 more expensive in August.

Meta has announced its decision to increase Quest 2's prices: starting in August, the 128GB and 256GB versions will cost $399.99 and $499.99 respectively.

The company says this change will help it "continue to invest for the long term and keep driving the VR industry forward with best-in-class hardware, action-packed games, and cutting-edge research on the path to truly next-gen devices."

As a bonus, new users that purchase Meta Quest 2 from August 1 to the end of the year and activate the device before January 31 will be able to download the VR rhythm game Beat Saber, which now costs $29.99, for free.

Aside from the headset itself, Meta will also increase the prices for its accessories and refurbished units.

Meta also shared its VR hardware roadmap, which begins with the launch of its high-end headset, Project Cambria, later this year. Then, the company will ship new generations of Meta Quest.

While Reality Labs Research is working on the state of the art in VR displays, audio, incredibly lifelike avatars, haptics, and wrist-based interfaces, Meta is planning to launch some new titles on Meta Quest 2, including Ghostbusters VR, Among Us VR, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution, BONELAB, and NFL PRO ERA.
