The Metaverse was the great bet of Mark Zuckerberg and Meta, who even changed the name of the company to show that they were serious, however, the bet has paid off and while the old Facebook was working and investing millions in the virtual world, its competitors focused on Artificial Intelligence. Now, this second one has exploded and has positioned itself as the technology of the present and near future, while the Metaverse has not taken off.
The problem with working focused on bringing the technology of the future is that you can be wrong. And while Zuckerberg and his company are known for their successes (hence the success of all their social networks) this time they have not found the product that for now seems to be what drives technology in the coming years. , such as Artificial Intelligence (AI).
But Meta has to try that all millionaire investments and hours worked in refining and creating a virtual world that lives up to what users expect, be compensated, so you have decided Lower the price of Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest Proyour Virtual Reality (VR) glasses.
Meta has never been very transparent with the sale of these devices, although some data has recently leaked that They point out that there will be about two million active users on Quest. The figure is far from the 10 million users that Zuckerberg aspired to achieve, which would provide a solid foundation for VR and the Metaverse to establish itself as an established ecosystem within the market.
The main problem is that the image quality of the Metaverse is far from what users expected, to which is added the high price of these productsso Zuckerberg’s project has not come to fruition.
That is why the company has decided to lower its prices from this Monday, in the case of glasses Meta Quest 2 256GB, They have gone from costing $499.99 to $429.99while the pro version of these costs $999.99 vs. $1,499.99 what it cost before
For now, this announcement has only been made based on prices in dollars, and while Meta has announced such reductions in Spain and other European countries, He has not yet indicated how much the decreases will be in our country.
