Meta Hikes VR Headset Prices About $100 as Production Costs Grow

Facebook parent company Meta Platforms Inc. is increasing the price of the company’s Quest 2 virtual reality headsets in the face of higher production costs, making a ticket to the metaverse a bit more expensive.

The Meta Quest 2 headset will cost $400 starting in August, about $100 more than the current 128-gigabyte model. The 256GB model will also increase in price by roughly $100 and will now cost $500. Meta is also raising the prices for accessories and refurbished units, according to a blog post.
