Reality Labs announced the price of the Meta Quest 2 is increasing by $100 in August. The 128 GB model next month price will go up to $399.99, while the 256 GB model will be priced at $499.99. The price of Meta Quest 2 accessories and refurbished units will also see an increase.

For a limited time every new Meta Quest 2 purchase will include a free copy of Beat Saber. The game will be included from August 1 to December 31. 

"People have spent over $1 billion on Meta Quest apps, helping to fuel developers’ businesses as they deliver the games and experiences that make VR great," reads the blog post from Reality Labs.

"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."

Reality Labs added, "Even with these pricing changes, Meta Quest 2 continues to be the most affordable VR headset with a comparable feature set on the market. And each headset keeps getting better after you buy. From hand tracking improvements and Air Link to Meta Horizon Home, we’re constantly adding new features to make VR more social, intuitive, and immersive than ever before. We’ll continue shipping exciting new software updates to improve our products on a regular basis."

I got bad news for you. The Quest 2 is easily the best selling VR Headset out there, by a wide, wide, wide margin.

It doesn’t matter how successful this device is if Facebook as a whole is failing.

While earnings were down from this quarter last year, 6 billion dollars is nothing to scoff at for just 3 months. Sorry but Facebook ain't going anywhere any time soon.

Meta's stock prices have lost half of their value since the beginning of 2021. They're hemorrhaging money with their all in on metaverse nonsense. So they're now trying to squeeze as much money as possible out of one of their more successful products.

You should from now on use his new surname ,while it isn't common knowledge Facebook decided that the change to Meta, was also the ideal time to change Mark's surname to Suckerberg with many believing the name change would help those poor souls who may not have fully grasped a concept so vast complex far reaching and grand as the metaverse vision understand what that vision entails . but the real reason was upon finding those with enough awareness for it to have had an effect they could then weed them out.

Glad i brought it when i did. Product is amazing.
This feels more like a price correction than a price hike.

I bought one for New Year, agree, it's a great product, being both standalone and PC VR all in one, no matter what I think of the parent company (nothing good). It was obviously underpriced to get them market penetration, but this price increase is just silly, and it won't result in much love from anyone.

I acquired mine a week ago just before the price hike. Absolutely love it. I would agree with the price correction comment.

Those that have used the Quest 2 will understand the price hike more. The system was sold dirt cheap and its so far advanced. Iv had some of my best gamimg experience using the Quest 2.
