Meta announced today it will be increasing the price of its Oculus Quest 2 virtual reality headsets alongside its accessories and refurbished units starting next month.

The company said in a blog post (opens in new tab) that the price of the VR headset will be increased by $100 beginning this August. That means the 128GB version will now cost $400 instead of the current $300, while the 256GB version will cost $500. Although, anyone who buys an Oculus Quest 2 starting Aug. 1 through the end of the year will get a free copy of the VR rhythm action game Beat Saber.
