Amazon is now offering the Meta Quest 2 VR headset starting at $349 for the 128GB capacity. This is the first discount of the year made available by the retailer. Landing at that new 2023 low is a $51 savings as well as the best price we’ve seen since last fall. There was some better value up for grabs with gift cards and bundles last Black Friday, but today’s cash rebate is the best it’s been in months. And while we saw the increased capacity of 256GB for sale for a 1-day sale last month, Amazon jumped in to deliver an even more remarkable savings of $429.99 compared to $500.
Whether you know it by the Oculus or Meta naming scheme, the Quest 2 offers a untethered virtual reality experience that doesn’t require an external PC or sensors to experience all the immersion that VR has to offer. You also get a pair of controllers that take interactivity to a new level to immerse yourself in games like Among Us VR and more. Meta also eliminates the need to log in with Facebook. When we first reviewed the headset, we found it was “a huge leap in the right direction for VR.” That leap forward still stands today as this is one of the best values for virtual reality.

If you’re looking for a way to make the most of the included savings, pairing the featured VR headset with the official Oculus Elite Strap is certainly worth a look. While the Quest 2 includes a headband in the box, the premium offering is ideal for more intense gameplay sessions. It offers an adjustable design with added padding to keep things in place. Also, now there is also a $5 discount.
Another portable slot is also on offer, offering a no-holds-barred experience at one of the best prices of the year. Nintendo’s Switch OLED console is now down to $320 with just under 50 days left until Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom debuts. This $30 savings now provides a rare opportunity to save on the company’s improved handheld.
