Meta Platforms launched Meta Quest+, a subscription-based service for its virtual reality (VR) headsets to shape a growing but high-investment market.

Meta Quest+ is available for all owners of Quest 2 and Quest Pro headsets, and the service is forward-compatible with Quest 3.

Chief Executive of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg said that “the Meta Quest+ subscription will be available at $7.99 per month, or $59.99 annually, for its Quest 2, Pro and soon for Quest 3.”

The social media company’s flagship VR headset Meta Quest Pro is currently priced at $999.99, down from its launch price of $1,499.99, and Quest 2 is being sold for $299.99, according to Meta’s website.

As per the statement, “Termed as the next big thing, the adoption of virtual reality headsets has been limited to the gaming community despite the devices now having more advanced features.”

Meta Quest+ is only available on the Meta Quest Store. The Meta Quest+ subscription service will offer users access to two hand-picked VR titles every month. Additionally, Meta is offering a limited-time deal of providing the first month at just $1 for those who sign up before July 31. The offer is only valid for new subscribers.

Meta said in an official statement, “At a monthly value of up to $60, Meta Quest+ combines affordability with the convenience of a curated experience. We’re excited to give gamers on Meta Quest a new way to explore all their headsets have to offer.”
