If you're searching for the perfect gateway into virtual reality (VR) gaming, then there's no better place to start than the Meta Quest 2. Even though the headset is already a relatively affordable choice, it's now available at even more tempting prices in both the US and UK.

In the US, the 128GB model is available for just $199 (was $249.99) at Amazon which is a saving of just over $50. While it's not quite the lowest-ever price at the retailer, it's just $5.42 shy so still excellent deal.

In the UK, that same headset has sold out at Amazon but is still available for just £199.99 (was £249.99) at Argos. That's a saving of £50 and matching the lowest-ever price we've seen in the Meta Quest 2 in the region, at least if historical Amazon price data is anything to go by.

Unlike other VR headsets, such as the Valve Index or PSVR 2, the Meta Quest 2 is an all-in-one product that doesn't require a powerful PC or expensive gaming console to use. While it is still compatible with a PC with some fiddling, everything that you need to play great games like Superhot or Sniper Elite VR is included in the box.

Although we're now getting to grips with the Meta Quest 3, the Meta Quest 2 still has plenty to offer in 2024. It's a fantastic budget alternative to the newer model, offering no shortage of compatible games, apps, and experiences to dive into. Thanks to the arrival of the Meta Quest 3, it's also receiving plenty of fantastic deals like this making it more affordable than ever.

We awarded the headset four and a half out of five stars in our original Meta Quest 2 review, praising its comfortable weight and ease of use. It's not as powerful as some of the high-end headsets out there, but it can still provide incredible levels of immersion. The Meta Quest 2 has also been a staple of our best VR headsets list for years and, although was recently displaced by the Meta Quest 3, it remains a strong contender.
