Jumping into the world of VR doesn't have to break the bank as the best Meta Quest 2 deal is still going strong. If you've waited this long to pick up our favorite VR headset, I bring good news. 

Target currently has the Meta Quest 2 on sale for $199. That's $50 below its normal retail price of $249 and one of the best gaming deals you can get right now. More importantly, it's a staggering $3,330 cheaper than the Apple Vision Pro! Not to be outdone, Amazon and Best Buy offer this same deal. 

Known as the Oculus Quest 2 before the name change in Jan. 2022, the Meta Quest 2 is the cheapest VR headset you can get. It improves upon the 1st generation Oculus VR headset with a higher resolution display and more powerful processor. The Meta Quest 2 headset tracks the movement of both your head and body, translating them in VR with realistic precision.

There's no telling how long this Meta Quest 2 deal will last, so be sure to grab it while you still can.
