The Quest 2 and the Quest Pro are Both Getting Price Reductions from Meta

Meta is making price cuts for its VR headsets. From tomorrow, you can purchase the recently released Meta Quest Pro for $1000, down from $1500, and the Meta Quest 2 256GB for $430, down from $500.

The statement in the announcement reads, “Our objective has always been to produce technology that is inexpensive for as many people as possible to take benefit of all that VR has to offer. “A new lower pricing for 256GB of storage will let even more people feel the delight of completely immersive games and experiences,” the company said in a statement. “We aren’t cutting the price of Meta Quest 2’s 128GB SKU, though.”

Prices are declining across most of Europe, Australia, Japan, and Taiwan, as well as in the US and Canada. Since regional pricing has not been disclosed, the Meta Quest Pro costs £1500 GBP. Hopefully, it will cost £1000 by tomorrow.

It’s important to remember that the Meta Quest 2 256GB was $400 less expensive up until last August. Once their stock price fell, Meta raised the cost of both headset variants by $100. We’ve since learned that in 2022, Meta wasted $13.7 billion on VR and AR. In November, the social network business let go of 11,000 employees, and more layoffs are anticipated.

Last October, the Meta Quest Pro was introduced at the current cost. As Mark Zuckerberg continues to push for the creation of the metaverse, it is marketed as an enterprise-level gadget rather than a device primarily for gaming.

Last month, John Carmack terminated his final part-time job at Meta. In his resignation letter, he said the corporation “constantly self-sabotages” its VR initiatives.

My Valve Index has been sitting in a drawer for months, even though I enjoy virtual reality and have had numerous positive experiences using a headset. Although I would like a gadget with a better resolution, I wonder if I could rationalize spending hundreds or even thousands of pounds only to make Beat Saber seem less jagged.
