The Oculus Quest 2 was one of the biggest releases of last year, and well-timed, really, considering we had shit all else to do with our time.
But now that it’s Amazon Prime Day 2021 (running from June 21-22, with global deals until 5pm on June 23) it’s only natural that it finally goes on sale. The Oculus Quest 2 is copping a decent $60 off its original price – which is something of a rarity for such a big tech release.
The 64GB Oculus Quest 2 is currently sitting at $419, down from $479, but Amazon has discounted the 256GB version down to $579, from its original price of $639. That’s just shy of a 9-13% saving (depending on which version), which is always a bigger markdown when the price is more substantial. This is the Oculus Quest 2 sale you’ve been waiting for, especially if you missed the last few fleeting times it was discounted.
Still, one of these is a big investment to make, but Amazon purchases are also available with buy-now pay later services like Zip Pay* (where you can pay back interest-free over time) if you prefer that method of shopping.
The Quest 2 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 Platform processor and 6GB of memory, giving it a solid performance boost in comparison to its predecessor.
The 90Hz LCD display provides a 1832 x 1920 resolution as well, making it the most attractive Oculus headset to date. All of this is packaged within the Quest 2’s lightweight, streamlined design, and even the Touch controllers have been upgraded to be more comfortable with better haptic feedback. Like the previous Quest, you can run it as a standalone headset or you can connect it to your PC via USB to play any of your VR-compatible games.
The Oculus Rift is also on sale from Amazon, with a nice $150 slashed off its original price point. It’s now $499, down from $649.
