The VR market is hotting up once again with 2023 undoubtedly set to be one of the biggest years for the technology. With PSVR 2 launching at the start of the year and rumors of a Meta Quest 3 being announced at some point, we're expecting deals for older hardware to fall accordingly. Of course, here we're bringing you the best Meta Quest 2 deals and bundles found across the web. 

The Meta Quest 2's price is $399 for the 128GB model and $499 for the 256GB model (the 64GB version was replaced earlier this year). Bundles can add anything from $50 to $200 on top of that price, and we typically see additional accessories holding their MSRPs when available here. 

With that in mind, during larger sales events retailers have been known to offer free goodies on top, such as carrier cases (worth $49). Just remember, any savings on the best VR headset on the market are going to be like gold dust. We're rounding up all the latest Meta Quest 2 deals right here, with all the retailers you should be heading to for bundle discounts and all the lowest prices on the headset by itself.

Where to find Meta Quest 2 bundles



What is the Meta Quest 2 price?

The standard cost for the Meta Quest 2 sits at £399 / $399 for the 128GB model, and £499 / $499 for the 256GB version, so make sure you're not paying more than the standard price for the headset by itself. 

There may still be a few 64GB units floating around at some stores, probably at the same price as the 128GB replacement models, so make sure you're getting the larger unit before you buy.

Do you need a PC for Meta Quest 2?

One of the biggest draws of the Meta Quest 2 system is that you don't need a PC to run it. That means you just need to pay that $399 / £399 initial cost and you're good to go, no expensive gaming PC needed. Of course, streamers and those looking to beef up their experience, can option to tether to their rigs, but rest assured you won't need to fork out for the latest components to run this VR headset. 

Is the Meta Quest 2 price worth it?

The Meta Quest 2 price is extraordinarily well pitched considering it's a standalone virtual reality headset that offers some of the best selection of VR apps in the industry, and you can even plug it into a computer to access even more games and apps if you prefer. Either way, you can't beat this headset for instant immersion into the thrilling new medium of virtual reality.

More affordable than the Oculus Rift or the super-fancy HTC Vive Pro 2, the updated Quest model packs advanced processing power with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 platform, specifically designed for VR and mixed-reality experiences. Offering sharper, more enhanced visuals to make the most of next-generation graphics, the Meta Quest 2 is one of the more advanced headsets that won't royally break the bank.

To add to the immersive experience, the headset features built-in speakers with 3D positional audio, so you'll hear sounds around you as you explore virtual worlds. The Quest 2's Touch controls have also been reworked with more advanced hand-tracking technology, so you can better interact with the games you play.

As we mentioned above, you can now pick up a 128GB model for the same $299 Oculus Quest price as the 64GB version - excellent value. 

When will Meta Quest 2 deals be available?

We generally only see discounts on this already well-priced device during Black Friday Meta Quest 2 deals, and even then prices don't drop below $349 / £299. Instead, we saw a $50 / £50 discount on a Meta Quest 2 bundle that arrived with Resident Evil 4 and Beat Saber. 

With rumors of a Meta Quest 3 being announced in late 2023, it's possible we could see a cut to the Meta Quest 2 as a result. This is all speculation, mind. 

Just glancing at the list of best VR games you can experience right now is enough to tempt anyone to invest in a new headset. Of course, it's worth bearing in mind you'll need a decent PC setup to get the most out of your time in VR. There are currently some fantastic offers around in our best gaming PC and best gaming laptop guides. If you're just after an audio upgrade, then our best gaming headset guide is what you need.
