Meta will increase the cost of the Quest 2 to $400.

Prices tend to go down as devices age, but Meta Quest 2 is an exception. According to UploadVR, Meta will increase the cost of the Quest 2 on August 1 from $299 to $400 for the base 128GB device and from $399 to $500 for the 256GB variant. As of this writing, the VR headset is still available for $299 on Amazon, but you may want to move in soon as supplies may run out soon.

Prices for the refreshed Quest 2 headsets are up to $349 and $429, respectively, for the 128GB and 256GB models. Also, expect an increase in accessory costs. By providing free copies of Beat Saber to new customers between August 1 and December 31, Meta will partially offset the price increase.

The company attributed the increase to higher freight and production costs. According to one blog, the Quest 2’s price increase will allow Meta to “expand [its investment]” in virtual reality research and development. Project Cambria’s high-end helmet was used as an illustration by Meta, who also confirmed that “new generations” of Quest are in the works.
