Meta Quest+ Subscription Service Launches Today

Quest+ is a new subscription service for Quest 2, Quest 3 and Quest Pro.

For $8 a month (or $60 per year) you get access to two new games every month. The games are chosen by Meta and are revealed at the start of every month.

As long as you keep your subscription valid, you keep all previous month's games.

Starting now, the first 2 games are Pistol Whip and Pixel Ripped 1995. In August it will be Walkabout Mini Golf and Mothergunship: Forge.

Between now and July 31 the first month will be only $1.

 

If you cancel your subscription, you lose access to the games you got via this service. But if you later join up again, it restores everything you previously got.

Unfortunately Quest 1 and Rift owners are left out. (Even though games like Pistol Whip and Walkabout MiniGolf run on them). Or at least Quest 1 seems left out, the blog only mentions it working on Quest 2 and above. But is that a physical block or just ignoring the Quest 1 but it works?

Thank you for posting this! (yeah the link is broken) 

We are all mad here.

Seems fairly priced to me.  Great news for many.

Big PC, all the headsets, now using Quest 3

I suppose the thinking is, which is best... have Quest 1 owners taking up a subscriptions and potentially have complaints that increasing number of games don't work on their headsets... or exclude Quest 1 owners and have them potentially complain about not having the service.

I suppose it's all about how many Q1 owners are active now and how many of the most popular titles aren't Q1 compatible (or won't be for the upcoming releases). I haven't checked either!

In what regions is this available?

I don't see any mention in the terms about region restrictions (besides that you need to be 17 years old in the US or 18 elsewhere).

They also say on the blog "Meta Quest+ is available for all owners of Quest 2 and Quest Pro headsets, and the service is forward-compatible with Quest 3".

But the link to sign up on the blog is still invalid it seems.

This is pretty cool! I don't quite have time to engage in VR as much as I used to these days (too much productivity going on IRL), but if I did... I'd be all over this!

I remember when Rift CV1 launched, and I allocated $1,000 just for VR software. Something like this would have saved me a bit of money back then lol 😇

Overall, I hope this turns out to be a great way to let all global Quest consumers enjoy a wide breath of VR titles at a significantly lower cost compared to buying them all outright. 

I am curious as to how this plays out, monetarily, for the devs of this software. Hopefully the payment model for VR App developers is enticing enough to encourage more support, development, and innovation of VR titles.

It’s an interesting idea. I’ve never used a game subscription, but isn’t this a but restrictive compared to something like Xbox game pass? Don’t most services give you a whole slew of games for your monthly fee? I guess this will too eventually, it’s just that they’re slowly rolling out the library at two games per month. I wonder if you get everything already released if you sign up later, or only what comes out during the lifetime of your subscription? (I guess I should read the blog.)

Edit: from reading the terms and conditions, it seems that you only get the games that you claim during their month on offer, so not the whole library.

I’ll be interested to see how this plays out for devs. What sort of compensation do they get? I imagine that the games that go onto the service will have been out long enough that they’re on the downward slope of the sales numbers graph, so this might help them extend their reach.

Personally, I prefer to buy my games outright, but as we’ve seen with a few titles in recent years (Ripcoil, Marvel, Echo Arena), they can still be pulled from your library in this age of games-as-a-service, so maybe a subscription is the way of the future.

DK2, CV1, Go, Quest, Quest 2, Quest 3.


Try my game: Cyclops Island Demo

Crikey, you must have been sat here every Tuesday waiting for them to release new software with that amount of cash burning a hole in your pockets.  "Nothing new this week guys."  "Ah well, back to Goat Goat Mountain..." 🤣

Nah, agreed - this will definitely be a good thing for the group of players that buy lots and hopefully have the time to play lots too.

 Mountain Goat Mountain is still a great game. 🙂

It's a shame nobody new can get it, only those of us who got it before it was pulled from the store can still play.
