Black Friday Meta Quest 2 deals 2023 – everything to expect

Looking forward, Meta says it will continue to support the Quest 2, which has been a very successful headset for the past few years. If you’re looking to try out VR for the first time, the Quest 2 is a very reasonably priced option with a massive game store. You’ll need to consider if it’s still worth buying its successor once it comes out, but for now, the Quest 2 fits nicely into the occasion. The announcement of Apple’s Vision Pro’s 3 adds another dimension to the VR market in 2023, especially compared to the different landscape we had last year, particularly with the PSVR.

Here, we’re gathering all the details you can anticipate regarding this year’s Black Friday gaming bargains on the top-notch virtual reality headset. How will the speculated announcement in 2023 about the Meta Quest 3 affect our finances? Will the Quest Pro provide any initial markdowns? Therefore, what amount can we anticipate saving on a Meta Quest 2?

Anticipated offerings for Black Friday Meta Quest 2 deals in 2023

It has been an interesting year so far for VR. PSVR has been stealing a lot of the limelight, but Meta will soon answer with its announcement about Quest 3. Meanwhile, the new Quest headset will likely launch before Black Friday, making the Holiday season an interesting spot for both Quest 2 and Quest 3. On the other hand, HTC Vive and XR Pro have struggled to make a name for themselves. Meanwhile, Apple is making waves in the room with its elephant-shaped headset, not to mention the mention of every other headset.

If you’ve been keeping an eye on the Oculus digital store, you may have seen some excellent deals on certain VR games for the Meta Quest on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Last year, during both Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we also saw some great discounts on accessories and third-party party deals. Big online deals are always a staple during these events, and the Meta Quest prices are generally quite large. Whether or not we will see any big discounts on the Meta Quest 2, which is rumored to be launching soon, remains to be seen. Despite rumors that the Pro Quest and Quest 2 may be discontinued, we saw discounts on both models during Amazon’s Prime Day sale in the summer months.

My sibling and I were shocked to hear that there will be an announcement about the upcoming price drop of the Oculus Quest 2 in the following summer, even though we didn’t see any similar kind of bundle deals in 2023. This meant that we could pick up the smaller £349/$349 model with an extra worth of £52.98/£69.98. Additionally, we enjoyed a discount of £50/$50 on the 128GB model, along with two free games – Beat Saber and Saber Beat, in both the UK and US. These were truly amazing deals during last year’s Black Friday.

Upon further reflection, the launch of Quest 3 has the potential to provide us with valuable insights into future developments. Although it may be a mere hopeful notion, it is possible that we could witness a price point of $250/£250 and $300/£300, based on the $50 reduction observed in 2022. Additionally, if there is a price reduction during Black Friday in 2023, the rates could be even more affordable compared to the previous year, considering that the standard prices for Quest 2 are currently set at £299/£299 and $349/£349.

Will the Meta Quest Pro be discounted for Black Friday?

I might see a few bundles or deals for Pro Quest on Black Friday, but I don’t have much hope that they will last. Meta really wants to try and ship some units, even though there hasn’t been much demand for Pro Quest since it was poorly reviewed and launched. This “premium” device is pretty stubborn when it comes to staying relevant. We saw a slight reduction in price for Pro Quest on Prime Day in the summer.

The Quest Pro has experienced a significant decrease in price since its launch, which is definitely good news. However, it still remains quite expensive on both sides of the Atlantic, which is the unfortunate part.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Strangely, the Quest Pro has cunningly been reduced to £779 in the UK at Amazon.

Activating the mechanism could potentially lead to a favorable outcome at present. If you can afford it, you definitely desire this as it offers a substantial reduction for a costly headset. However, it should be noted that there are superior alternatives available and upon our evaluation, this particular device did not receive our endorsement as a favorite.

Is the 256GB Meta Quest 2 worthwhile?

If you’re concerned about running out of storage space, the 256GB version is truly worth it. The 2 Quest Meta GB 256 now costs £349 / $349, which is £100 / $100 more expensive than the smaller 128GB model.

Depending on how many games you plan on loading onto your system and the size of their files, you may need approximately 3.5GB of storage. If you’re looking to get the top releases on Black Friday, consider the sizes of their files and how they will load onto your system.

  • Bonelab – 7 gigabytes.
  • NFL Pro Era – 2.5GB.
  • Superhot VR – 2.1 gigabytes.
  • Blade & Sorcery Nomad – 2.3 gigabytes.
  • Job Simulator – 1.8 gigabytes.
  • The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners – 7.3 gigabytes.
  • Onward – 3.5 gigabytes.
  • Beat Saber – 1.5 gigabytes.
  • Upgrading is highly beneficial if you are inclined to play bigger games or if you already possess a list of items to purchase that surpasses the previous amount. The 128GB virtual reality headset will provide ample capacity for approximately 34 games of this magnitude, which increases to 70 for the 256GB version, after deducting around 8GB for the operating files. Nevertheless, most users will not see the worth in investing extra money in storage that they will not eventually utilize.
