The rumors are true: The Oculus Quest 2 is real, and it's better than the original. It's also less expensive.
Sadly not technically a deal but I thought important to put out there because compared with every over offering this is a bargain.
Facebook has updated the Quest with a new, faster, VR-optimized Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 processor and a higher-resolution display, and dropped the price by $100 to $299. (In Australia it's AU$479.)
The new 1,832x1,920-per-eye pixel resolution is improved from the 1,400x1,600 on the older Quest, and it makes everything smoother, removing a lot of the "screen door" pixelation. The newer XR2 processor also cuts down on the lower-res halo on the edges of the display that happened previously due to fixed foveated rendering (which only made the center of the display look ultrasharp to help the older processor). It's more universally clean and crisp now, even at the edges.
