Greatest Oculus Quest 2 Offers: November 2022 Presents

The Oculus Quest 2 – well, technically the Meta Quest 2 now, but that’s semantics – is probably the best virtual reality headset in years, thanks to a winning combo of portability, power, and price.

Even better, since it’s a standalone headset you don’t need an expensive gaming PC or console to power the VR – the Quest 2 just works, which makes it a perfect first VR purchase.

The only downside for potential Quest 2 buyers is that the headset got a price hike in July 2022, making it more expensive than ever – and that makes the fact deals are hard to come by even more disappointing. There was an unexpected £50/$50 cashback offer over the Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday sales period in late 2021, but since then we haven’t seen any deals quite as good.

Still, you can save a little on accessories if you buy from the right place, so we’ve rounded up all the savings we can find in both the US and UK right here.

How much does the Oculus Quest 2 cost?

  • 128GB – $399/£399
  • 256GB – $499/£499

When released, the Oculus Quest 2 started at a very tempting $299/£299 for the 128GB model and $499/£499 for the 256GB model, making it $100/£100 cheaper than the original Quest headset and an all-round great deal for prospective VR headset buyers.

However, following a price hike in July 2022 that Meta attributes to rising manufacturing and shipping costs, the Meta Quest 2 has seen a 33% price hike, bringing it back to the same $399/£399 starting price as the OG Quest for the 128GB model, and $499/£499 for the 256GB model.

Is the Oculus Quest 2 better than the Quest?

The simple answer is yes, but see our review to find out why.

The Quest 2 is 10% lighter, more comfortable, and offers an improved display with over 50% more pixels than the original Quest. This translates to a bright, detailed experience with nearly 2K resolution per eye.

The refresh rate also gets a boost to 90Hz from 60Hz, along with controllers that last four times longer than the batteries on the original.

More importantly, Oculus has simplified the IPD (or Interpupillary Distance) adjustment. The IPD measures the distance between your pupils to calculate a 3D effect that’s believable. Users can now quickly choose the setting that works best out of three options.

Of course, if you’re looking at how to buy the Quest 2, you probably know most of this, but see our full guide to the Quest 2 and the best Quest accessories if you want to know even more.
