As it's so rarely discounted, we're always on the lookout for the best Oculus Quest 2 deals. We check all the top retailers to bring you today's cheapest prices for the VR headset to ensure you don't miss out on the next price cut. Unfortunately, while we don't see it discounted much outside of major sales events, we'll be sure to alert you to any offers as and when they pop up right here.

Looking around today, we haven't seen anything that beats the $50 / £50 voucher that was offered along with the Oculus Quest 2 by most major retailers during Black Friday. There was a £50 discount on the 256GB version in the UK just last week, but that only lasted for a couple of days. Sadly, it's unlikely something like that will be back for a while now. 

If you do want to buy today, you have to pay the full $299 / £299 price for the VR headset. The closest we've come to any Oculus Quest 2 deals right now is a £10 saving on the Elite Strap with Battery when you buy the VR headset directly from the Meta Quest store.

Overall, the hunt for any discount is tough, but do read through our Oculus Quest 2 review to see exactly why we think it's the best VR headset you can buy today. If nothing has tempted you to make a purchase right now, do check back in regularly for all the latest Oculus Quest 2 deals. Who knows, we may see a deal during this year's Memorial Day sales or during Amazon Prime Day?

You can also browse even more cheap VR headset deals if you'd prefer a more budget option. There's also the release of the PSVR 2 on the horizon so we'll have an eye on the best PSVR deals for the console owners out there.

Oculus Quest 2 deals

The standard price of the Oculus Quest 2 is $299.99/£299.99 for the 128GB version. You can also choose to increase the available storage in the VR headset up to 256GB and this model will set you back $399.99/£399.99. In our view, the cheaper one is the sensible choice for most as that's enough space for between 30-40 games at a time.

Nevertheless, we monitor the price for both Oculus Quest 2 headsets to ensure you always get the best deal. Here's where it's available for the cheapest price today.

Oculus Quest 2 accessory deals

There's a decent selection of Oculus Quest 2 accessories are available to buy. Some of the official options include a Carrying Case to store and transport the headset, an Elite Strap that provides a more comfortable and secure experience, and Oculus Link Cable that allows you to play older Rift VR games on the Quest 2 through your gaming PC.

We've also included some popular Oculus Quest 2 accessories that have been made in collaboration with other manufacturers.

Oculus Quest 2 FAQs

Are the Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S discontinued?

In April 2021, Facebook announced it would no longer manufacture the Oculus Rift S and instead focus on the wireless Quest experience. Six months before that, the company also discontinued the production of the original Oculus Quest. That means the only VR headset in the range available to buy today is the Oculus Quest 2.

In the time since production ceased on the Rift S and original Quest, a number of retailers reduced the price on these older devices to clear any remaining inventory. Checking today, neither are in stock brand new so you're only option is to go second hand for these devices.

However, given that the Oculus Quest 2 is the only one with current support - and that the price is around the same as the discontinued devices - we'd strongly encourage you to go with the latest VR headset instead. It'll be kinder on your wallet and give you a better overall VR experience.

What about the 64GB Oculus Quest 2?

The Oculus Quest 2 was available with 64GB of storage when it originally launched. This version of the VR headset has since been discontinued and now the basic model comes with 128GB of storage as standard. Better still, this larger capacity Oculus Quest 2 is exactly the same price as the smaller one. If you see a 64GB Oculus Quest 2 for sale, then, ignore it and make sure you get the 128GB version as you get more room for games, applications and files for the money.

Will there be an Oculus Quest 3?

Yes, there will be an Oculus Quest 3, but current speculation suggests it will not launch until at least 2023.

In between that, another piece of VR hardware has been announced by Meta that's being developed under the name Project Cambria. Rather than the Oculus Quest 3, this looks to be a higher-end VR and AR hybrid that's tied in more closely with Facebook's push towards a 'metaverse'. Not necessarily a bit of kit exclusively for gaming, then, but we'll continue to follow any news right here at TechRadar ahead of a rumoured launch in 2022.
