With this new update, Meta Quest 2’s price has also increased by $100! So, that is a bummer for those who were planning on buying the new headset. 

Not almost every Meta user has received this update. It is gradually coming out. So, you’ll have to remain patient. Of course, there are drawbacks as well. Your information will still be with Meta! Users have always been suspicious of Meta’s privacy concerns. Even though you don’t need to login through a Facebook account anymore, it still asks for you to log in through some other source. So, this means that your data is still with them! This might upset the users more in the future. What are your thoughts regarding this? Let us know in the comments below!
