Facebook, er, we mean, Meta, is still very much committed to its Quest VR headsets (formerly known as Oculus) despite the company suddenly falling very quiet about its whole “Metaverse” thing. The headsets are still compatible with content provided in the Meta ecosystem (games etc.) as well as allowing connection with your PC (and possibly some consoles with some workarounds) via a USB cable, so you can play Steam VR games too.
Reviews are generally pretty favourable and the price seems accessible too, so it all comes down to how much you really want to experience games in VR – the jury is still somewhat out on the technology and has been for decades. In any case, we’re all about the UPCs here and thought it was high time we investigated them, especially as there is more than a rumour of a Quest 3 headset coming out soon with higher performance and resolution (though the 2 will apparently still be available).
Meta currently has two headset packages: the basic Meta Quest 2 and the Meta Quest Pro. They are not radically different in terms of resolution and processing power, but the pro package is intended for professional applications and offers more memory, more sensors, a wider FOV, more tracking cameras and more robust wireless connectivity options, to name a few. The average home user probably won’t miss these options too much, especially considering the Pro headset is nearly three times the price of the Quest 2.
UPCs for Meta Quest headsets
Meta Quest Pro System: UPC – 815820023159
Meta Quest 3: UPC – 815820022688
Both packages include controllers, chargers etc.
As always, be careful when viewing comparison listings, unfortunately sellers list all kinds of item under the same UPC and if a price looks too good to be true, it probably is, or it’s just the charger or something – there’s really nothing we can do about that, unfortunately.
