The Oculus Quest 2 has a new 128GB model available and you can actually buy it starting from today. As Oculus just launched it earlier this morning. Since the initial launch of the Quest 2, there has ever only been two models you could acquire. A 64GB base model, and then the larger 256GB model for beefier storage.
Interestingly that left a pretty big gap between the two. So it was a bit odd that Oculus chose not to launch an in-between option of the Quest 2 with 128GB. Today that changes. But that being said, there’s one tiny caveat that is worth mentioning. There is no longer a 64GB option.
The Oculus Quest 2 128GB costs the same price as the 64GB model
So there’s no longer a 64GB model available. It would seem like that should be a shame. Because you would think the 64GB model would cost less. But it doesn’t. And that’s because Oculus launched the new 128GB model for the same price as the 64GB model. So it’s simply doubling the storage amount for the same price. Which is $299.
That, is the definition of a good deal. And honestly, the Quest 2 at 64GB was already a good deal if you didn’t need a lot of storage. Now you’re just getting more space for apps and games without having to pay more for it or upgrade to the 256GB model.
So really a win-win for everyone involved. Especially Quest 2 fence sitters who weren’t committed to buying just yet, but were interested.
Get the new Quest 2 solo, or in bundles
While there’s only two storage options available, there are multiple bundle options. On Amazon alone you’ll find the new Quest 2 with double the storage for $299 as a standalone buy. But you can also get it in numerous bundle options. In fact there are three options altogether. A starter bundle, a streamer bundle, and a pro bundle.
Obviously these all increase the price. But this way you don’t have to purchase the accessories separately if you were considering getting them anyways. Units are officially available as of today too. So these aren’t pre-orders. Amazon at the very least is shipping today, with arrivals as early as tomorrow.
You can also get the Quest 2 directly from Oculus.
