News - Facebook-Free Oculus Quest 2 Is Way More Expensive

Facebook-Free Oculus Quest 2 Is Way More Expensive

Those looking to get into virtual reality on a relatively cheap budget may consider the Oculus Quest 2, but the "Facebook login required" caveat might be a turnoff. There's a version that doesn't require the social media account. However, that one, Oculus Quest 2 for Business, comes in at $400-$500 more than the base model.

That's right: There are two separate SKUs for the Oculus Quest 2. One is for business and another for consumers. The consumer model starts at $299 for 64 GB and $399 for 256 GB. When considering other VR headsets like the HTC Vive and Valve Index, and their convoluted setup processes, the Oculus Quest 2's affordable price and ease-of-use is more enticing. That is, until the "Facebook login required" caveat pops up.

This is where the Quest 2 for Business comes in. At $799 for 256 GB (the only one available in this SKU), this version doesn't require a Facebook login despite the hardware looking identical to the consumer model. That's between a 100% and nearly 200% increase in cost. Add in the $180 annual subscription to enterprise-grade software and support after a year of free service following the purchase and the Oculus Quest 2 for Business inches closer to standard VR headset pricing.
