Oculus Quest 2 with 128GB Storage Might Quickly Exchange 64GB Base Mannequin – Street to VR
Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2 headset was launched in October 2020 in two variants: 64 GB and 256 GB. Now, images have surfaced through French online retailer LDLC and its subsidiary Top Achat, suggesting the existence of an upcoming 128GB version of Quest 2. In particular, LDCL is an official Oculus partner reseller, which could give credibility to the report.
The French video game website GamerGen first spotted the listings. In a chat on Twitter, GamerGen said it had received confirmation from retailer Top Achat stating that the listing was authentic and not a bug.
“So I checked, it’s not a bug or a leak. It was put online on July 6th at 12:01 am after the end of the NDA, ”the Top Achat message reads. “The 64 GB model is now out of stock, the 128 GB model replaces it.”

If the report is to be believed, the quick confirmation from Top Agate seems to be a bit misguided. The listing has since been removed, however a version of the LDLC listing is still available for viewing through the Wayback Machine Internet Archive. Note that “Go” is French for GB, which should not be confused with the now-discontinued Oculus Go Standalone from 2018.
The GamerGen report claims the 128GB version will be released on July 20th. The general lack of 64GB flavors at online retailers, particularly through regional Amazon sites and Oculus itself, supports the mid-generation update option.
If the above listing is completely correct and does not include any wildcard information, the price seems to stay the same from 64GB to 128GB. In Europe, the 64 GB version costs € 350 while the 256 GB version costs € 450.
Of course, there is no official endorsement from Facebook or any other official source, although we expected it to be as the company generally avoids talking about products before they are officially announced.
