Following on from yesterday's Meta Quest 3 leaks, we have some more official news. Just months after launch, the Quest Pro headset is getting a significant price cut and beyond that, the Quest 2 is also getting a price cut just months after having its price raised.
Today, Meta announced that the Quest Pro headset will be dropping in price from $1,499 to $999. Additionally, the 256GB version of the Quest 2 headset is dropping down from $499 to $429.
Why would Meta be dropping prices all of a sudden? Well it could partially be to clear stock as the company prepares for a new generation of VR headsets. Earlier this week, employees at Meta's Reality Labs leaked an internal presentation, including a roadmap that shows the Quest 3 as launching this year.
The Quest 3 will apparently offer twice as much performance as the Quest 2, while also being thinner, lighter and slightly more expensive. Meta is also said to be working on roughly 41 new games and apps to support the launch.

KitGuru Says: The Quest 2 price cut will come into effect on the 5th of March in many countries, including the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and more. If you're planning on picking up the 256GB version, it might be best to wait for the price drop to kick in.
