Oculus' Quest 2 Headset Returns to Sale in the UK with Upgraded Baseline Model

Oculus' Quest 2 VR headset is now available in the UK once more, returning to retailers with a new baseline model that ships with more storage and the same price as before. 

The baseline Quest 2 model now ships with 128GB of storage, doubling the storage capacity of the original baseline Quest 2. This model will cost £299 in the UK and $299 in the US. Oculus' 256GB model will still retain its £399 pricing. 

Oculus' Quest 2 VR headset has been unavailable for the past month in many regions, as many users of the headset had been reporting skin irritation due to the headset's removable foam padding. Newer headset models should ship with silicone covers to prevent this issue from occurring again. 

Oculus' Quest 2 headset is a standalone VR headset that can also be connected to PCs to deliver a PCVR experience using Oculus' Link cable. Upgrading the Quest 2's baseline model with 128GB of storage dramatically increases the number of games and experiences that the headset can have installed at any given time. This is a welcome change for new Quest 2 headset purchasers, though recent purchasers of the Quest's 64GB model will undoubtedly be annoyed by this change. 

Currently, Oculus' Quest 2 VR headset is the most popular VR headset on Steam, with Valve's latest Steam Hardware Survey giving the headset a 32.56% market share for PCVR.  
 
Starting today, Oculus' new 128GB Quest 2 is now available to purchase from the Oculus webstore and Amazon.

It's a good upgrade 64GB is way to small for a stand alone headset, you can also get the silicon face cover free which isn't a bad thingQuote

I think 128 is still too small. 512 should be default. If a mobile phone can provide such storage then so should this.

Take Asgards Wrath for example that is 121gb on its ownQuote

Agree, must admit I use Air link with mine so most games I have are on the pc, I get games that aren't just quest games because if I ever swap headsets all the quest only games are just wasted moneyQuote
