Since launch, the Quest 2 VR headset has been a pretty good deal for its price. Unfortunately, the headset is about to get more expensive, with Meta announcing a $100 price hike.
In an announcement yesterday, Meta claimed that the cost of producing the Quest 2 has increased since launch, leading to the price increase. Aside from increasing the price of a brand new headset, Meta will also be increasing the prices for refurbished units and accessories too.
The new pricing will see the Quest 2 costing $399.99 for the 128GB version and $499 for the 256GB version. The new pricing goes into effect in August, so if you happen to have the cash handy, you could pick one up before then at the cheaper price.
To give users back at least something for the additional cost, Meta will be giving all Quest 2 buyers a copy of Beat Saber between August and December.

KitGuru Says: This price hike comes ahead of a very promising Quest 2 games line-up, including the likes of Ghostbusters VR, Bonelab, Among Us VR, a new NFL game and the next chapter of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners.
