Meta has confirmed that its Project Cambria VR headset will cost “significantly” more than $800. In a statement issued to Road to VR, the social media giant added clarification regarding the price of its metaverse goggles, following price claims included in a virtual reality release roadmap report by The Information.
The Project Cambria confirmation effectively dismisses claims that the device will cost $800, but gives us an idea of what to expect in terms of price. The company’s wording implies its next best VR headset could cost over $1,000, meaning it’d sit among professional-grade options like the HTC Vive Focus 3.
Meta has already stressed that Project Cambria is a higher-end product than the Oculus Quest 2, with the company suggesting it could eventually replace your work PC. While this doesn’t mean it won’t double as a gaming headset, Meta’s metaverse intentions are crystal clear, and it’d likely rather you use the device to wield a social avatar than mess up zombies in Resident Evil 4 VR.
