Facebook kept the Oculus Quest 2 tightly under wraps until about mid-August when the floodgates opened, and leaks started appearing on the web. Facebook officially announced the Oculus Quest at Facebook Connect on September 16, 2020.
The Oculus Quest 2 represents a major step forward for wireless VR, as we've pointed out in our Oculus Quest 2 review. It features substantially improved performance and graphics over the original Oculus Quest, adds in more RAM, a 50% higher resolution display, 3D audio, additional storage options, and even better ergonomics for the headset and controllers.
The Oculus Quest 2 with 64GB of storage retails for $299, while the model with 256GB of storage retails for $399. Neither model supports expandable storage, so make sure you grab the bigger one if you like to install a lot of games at once.
Buy Oculus Quest 2 at Amazon
Amazon is selling the Oculus Quest 2 in both 64GB and 256GB storage options. They've also got all the official accessories and several different bundles that include a carrying case, the Elite Strap, and even ones that include the Oculus Link cable.
The Oculus Quest 2 doesn't support expandable storage, so be sure to get one that has enough room for all your games!
Buy Oculus Quest 2 at Best Buy
Best Buy also has both 64GB and 256GB Oculus Quest 2 models and all of the official accessories. They don't seem to have as many bundles as Amazon at this time, but there is one big bundle that includes the Oculus Quest 256GB and all the accessories you could want.
When you order at Best Buy, you can pick the Oculus Quest 2 up at any local store or just have it shipped to your home.

Buy Oculus Quest 2 accessories
Oculus Quest users love to accessorize their VR headset. Luckily, Facebook and other companies stepped up and created several add-ons. The Oculus Quest 2 ships with cloth velcro straps, but you can purchase a more rigid Quest 2 Elite Strap for $50, which is one of the best Oculus Quest 2 accessories. That one features a rigid plastic design similar to the Oculus Rift S, but with a cushy cranial pad at the back for enhanced comfort. Facebook is also upping its game by selling a Quest 2 Elite Strap with an extra battery inside to help with those long VR gaming sessions and double the Quest 2's battery life.
Speaking of intense gaming sessions, Facebook also offers an official Fit Pack that comes with two face pads to change out when things get extra sweaty (like during the new Beat Saber multiplayer mode). And when you want to take the Oculus Quest 2 on the go, there's a handy carrying case for safely packing the whole thing away. Oculus also sells this carrying case with the Elite battery strap in a bundle together. Last but not least is the new Oculus Link cable, which features ultra-fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 speeds for playing PC VR games with perfect visuals.
Disclaimer: Since the Oculus Quest 2 and its accessories are so new, stock will vary. If the product you want is sold out, check back in regularly to see if the retailer replenished.
If those cloth straps aren't comfortable enough, there's hope. The Quest 2 Elite Strap is a more rigid, comfortable option.
A fully wireless, standalone VR system like the Oculus Quest 2 is made to be portable. Keep it safe with this case!
Extra comfortable, extra play time
This combo pack includes a case and the Elite Strap with an extra battery packed inside so that you can game on the go for twice as long.
Get sweaty, it's fine
Getting sweaty while playing VR? Need a different size face pad? This pack covers both those issues in one fell swoop.
