How much does the Meta Quest Pro cost in the US & UK?

At Meta Connect 2022, we found out that the Project Cambria, or the Meta Quest Pro, will be priced at $1,499 in the US and £1,499 in the UK.

We had always anticipated the Meta Quest Pro to cost a premium price, though the thousand dollar increase from the Meta Quest 2 was certainly shocking.

Expert’s view of the Meta Quest Pro

With the Meta Quest Pro released now, prospective buyers will be comparing it against competitors from brands such as the upcoming PSVR 2 and the venerable Valve Index.

Should you wait for the Meta Quest Pro?

This comparison is thrown into particularly sharp relief, due to the recent price bump of the Meta Quest 2, which was supposedly to help the continued investment into VR tech, but we think it’s just to bolster budget for the Zucc’s upcoming MetaVerse.

The price increase of the previous Meta headset, combined with the impressive potential specs of the Meta Quest Pro mean that in our opinion, it’s well worth waiting for, though you will have to surmount the $1,499 price mountain before you are there.

Additionally, the Meta Quest 2 is almost 2 years old at time of writing, and the speed at which technology progresses makers an aging device a tricky sell.
