I was wondering what the options are for purchasing the Oculus Quest 2 in India. It probably won't be officially released here.
What are the best online options? Newegg? Amazon US? I am OK paying around 35k, ie. around 50% over the US price of $300.
Unfortunately my sense is that Amazon US now charges a bigger premium than it used to almost 100% which is more than I am willing to pay. For example in this listing the
$300 Quest 2 is listed at $573 when imported to India. I have seen this kind of premium in other listings too. A year or two back my sense is the import differential was more like 50%.
I am hoping Newegg will have a more reasonable price.
So is anyone here purchasing this?
I think I am going to pass. The prices I am seeing are around 42k which is almost a 100% premium, too much for me. Plus a lot of user reviews are saying that the
default strap is poor and that you have to buy the "elite strap" which IIRC is $50 in the US and no doubt a lot more to ship to India.
Maybe I will look into some PC VR options but all those are massively overpriced in India too. The state of VR in India is pretty pathetic...
