Just three months after Quest Pro’s release, Meta is reducing the headset’s price ahead of other competitors’ product releases.
The price of the Meta Quest Pro headset has been reduced by $400, and it’s now available for $1,100.
Meta is experimenting with steep discounts on its newest headset. Quest Pro was released in October 2022 with a price tag of $1,500, which many people criticized. Currently, the Quest Pro has a limited-time discount of $400 and costs $1,100 in US stores and £1,300 in the UK. The device features self-tracking controllers, partial light blockers, and a charging pad. The headset is the first device in Meta’s high-end mixed-reality product line aimed at early adopters, businesses, and developers.
The Meta Quest Pro is an upgrade from Quest 2 headset, which is two years old and only costs $400. Despite a discount, the Pro still costs nearly three times as much as the Quest 2. However, the newly launched VR headset targets a specific market segment and is not a replacement for the Quest 2. A consumer-oriented Quest 3 is expected to be released in 2023.
Meta’s newest headset has advantages over the Quest 2 with a higher resolution display, better compatibility with wider glasses, redesigned controllers with built-in cameras, color passthrough cameras, and eye and face tracking. However, its larger size and shorter battery life mean it is not ideal for everyone.
The Quest Pro temporary promotion is available on Meta’s store and through third-party retailers. It could indicate that Meta is preparing for price reductions in the face of increasing competition. Sony’s PSVR2 is arriving this year, along with Apple’s debut mixed reality headset, Reality Pro. HTC’s Vive XR Elite, a pro-level VR headset with a similar price tag as Quest Pro, is also expected this year.
