As VR continues to gain popularity, the recent news that Meta will be raising the price of its Quest 2 headset from August comes as no surprise. The Quest 2 is currently an absolute steal at just $299/£299, but Meta is set to up the cost by $100/£100 in a matter of hours. So, if you're in the US, head over to B&H Photo, or John Lewis if you're in the UK, to beat the price hike today.

The Meta Quest 2 is an impressive piece of kit, so much so it's earned the top spot in our round up of the best VR headsets. Even after this price hike comes into effect, it will still offer excellent value for money, and remain the most affordable high-end headset on the market when looking at competing brands. But why wait if it means saving a third of the current price, right? Here's where to get the Meta Quest 2 in the US and UK before the extra cost comes into force.
