The Meta Quest 2 gets a permanent price cut to $199

The Quest 2 is currently being supplanted by the $500 Quest 3, of course, but it remains an incredible entry point to VR, one that allows you to play every Quest game except a single title exclusive to Quest 3 announced last month. It doesn’t have color vision or good mixed reality gaming, and I definitely prefer the Quest 3 for comfort and immersion, but I don’t know if I prefer it by $300.

I have concerns about how long Meta will support the Quest 2 after seeing how badly the company denounced the original Quest by retroactively shutting down fan-favorite games and withdrawing support. Meta CTO Andrew “Boz” Bosworth told me we should expect first-party games to support Quest 2 for “a while” last June, but didn’t answer my question about find out if Meta could retroactively stop games on Quest 2.

Yet there are millions of other reasons to support Quest 2: It was the most popular headset the company has ever produced and accounts for the lion’s share of the 20 million Meta headsets sold as of February 2023. It was so requested during the pandemic that Meta makes it. raised the price of a gadget then two years old in 2022.

For now, the Quest 2 can even benefit from a few updates before the Quest 3, such as the lying mode which arrived in March and which took another month to arrive on the new Meta helmet.

The Quest 2 still seems like a good deal today.
