VR manufacturer Pico may not be as well-known as Meta in the West, but the company is bringing the fight to the Quest 2 with the Pico 4 all-in-one VR headset. It boasts much-improved hardware including pancake lenses and a higher resolution than even the Quest Pro, along with an ergonomic design, PC VR capabilities and an affordable price tag.
That makes the fact that Pico is offering a whopping six games to anybody that invests in the Pico 4 right now even more tempting. The Pico 4 is already cheaper than the Quest 2, coming in at £379.99 in the UK, but if you order the VR headset right now, you’ll also get the following games completely free of charge:
Les Mills Body Combat
After The Fall
Shores of Loci
Much like Meta’s deal on the Quest 2 over the Black Friday weekend, the Pico bundle is available through third-party retailers including Amazon and Very in the UK, along with retailers in Denmark, France, Italy and Spain ‘till the 10th of January 2023.
Those in the US are out of luck as the headset is yet to make it to American shores – but whispers suggest that could happen sooner rather than later.
Still, those in the UK and Europe are in for a real treat, with the Pico 4 representing the only real threat to Meta’s hugely popular Quest 2. We praised the high-end hardware, compact design and fast performance in our Pico 4 review, awarding the headset four stars and the Tech Advisor recommended award.
It’s not the perfect competitor – some of the biggest VR titles are published by Meta and likely won’t be coming to the Pico 4 anytime soon – but the library of games on the headset is constantly expanding. It’ll just take some time to catch up to Meta!
To see how the Pico 4 compares to the competition, take a look at our hand-picked selection of the best VR headsets, and if you’re more tempted by Meta’s headset, we cover the latest Quest 2 deals separately.
