Oculus announced the Quest 2, its next standalone VR headset that doesn’t require a PC. My colleague Adi Robertson wrote everything you need to know about the new Quest 2, and she even spent enough time on it to write a full review. The headset is available for pre-order now from Oculus and will be available from October 13th.
Oculus announces that it is partnering with Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Walmart to stock the Quest 2 in US stores. It will be available worldwide through Amazon. It was also noted that the Quest 2 will be available for purchase in Japanese retail stores for the first time, namely in the stores of Bic Camera, Yamada Denki, Yodobashi Camera, and Geo.
What does the Oculus Quest 2 cost?
Starting at $ 299, the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset costs $ 100 less than the first-generation model. At this price, you get a headset with 64GB of storage and a step-up headset for $ 399 with 256GB of onboard storage. Both headset configurations contain two controllers.
If you want to connect the Quest 2 to your PC to run more powerful games that otherwise couldn’t be done with the headset, you can still buy the Oculus Link cable or try this much cheaper Anker USB 3.0 Type-C cable from Amazonas .
