The best Oculus Quest 2 deals of May 2023
Quest deals are finally start to pick up.
Up until recently, finding the best Oculus Quest 2 deals was like pulling teeth. Retailers just weren't willing to drop the price of the VR headset while it was seeing such a surge in popularity. Luckily, we're finally starting to see some signs that that might be changing, but don't take our word for it: you can find the best Quest 2 deals on the web below.
As we note in our Oculus/Meta Quest 2 review, the headset continues to offer the best VR experience for most people, even as we approach the console's 3rd birthday. That being said, at around $399.99 for the 128GB version and $499.99 for the 256GB headset, the Quest 2 isn't exactly cheap (although the price is comparable to most video game consoles), which is why we've been so eager to find great deals.

Frequently asked questions
What is the Oculus Quest 2?
Simply put, the Oculus Quest 2 is a VR video game console. But unlike other consoles, the Quest is a completely standalone device that requires no connection to a TV or computer (although there is an option to display what's happening inside the headset on a nearby screen). Once setup is complete, you're given access to all of the Oculus Quest 2 games and apps found in the Oculus store. Most of these games cost around $10-$40 and average about 1-2GB in size.
Is it Oculus or Meta?
Way back in the Summer of 2021, Facebook officially rebranded itself as "Meta", and the Oculus VR brand followed suit shortly thereafter. Despite their best efforts, however, search engine data shows that most folks still prefer to use the old name, Oculus Quest 2, almost two years later. Although we tend to alternate between the two names depending on context, we usually use the name Oculus for clarity and convenience (for now).
Once you set up your Oculus Quest 2, you'll need to buy some games. Head over to our list of the best Oculus Quest 2 games so you can stop searching and start playing.
