Meta Quest announced a significant hike in price for their Meta Quest 2 headsets via Twitter. With little warning, little explanation, and no new features to add along with this increase in price, many ask why this was necessary in the first place.
In order to continue investing in moving the VR industry forward for the long term, we are adjusting the price of Meta Quest 2 headsets to $399.99 (128GB) and $499.99 (256GB) starting on 8/1/22.

Users on Twitter have immediately made their opinion on this price increase known, and currently, they don’t seem very happy. Meta Quest 2 was known for being priced for those who may have never tried VR before and to get more people interested in the new technology.
This is a developing story…
