Meta will increase the price of the Meta Quest 2 from August. The VR glasses will cost $ 100 more in the US. Meta calls the price increase necessary, because the costs to produce and ship the glasses have also increased.

meta announces the price increase for the United States. The 128GB version of the VR glasses will cost $400. The 256GB version will soon have to be paid $ 500. That’s $100 more than the current price for both versions. The price increase will take effect from August. It is not known what the new price in the Benelux will be. The 128GB version of the Meta Quest 2 currently costs 350 euros here. For the version with 256GB, the suggested retail price is 450 euros.

Meta’s VR glasses were launched in 2020 by the company that was then still called Facebook. When Tweakers reviewed the VR glasses upon release, they were still called the Oculus Quest 2. When the company changed its name to Meta, the VR glasses also received a new name.

The price of the Meta Quest 2 isn’t the only thing that will change from August. Users of the VR glasses no longer need to have a Facebook account from next month. Instead, users can log in with a Meta account. This account can be linked to a Facebook account, but this is not mandatory.

Meta is also working on a successor to the Quest 2. According to the latest rumors, these VR glasses would be called Quest Pro. The VR glasses should appear later this year.
