Here's everything you need to know on the matter including how much space your average game takes up and whether you can upgrade any components on the Quest 2.

In short, unfortunately not. There isn't a way to upgrade either the RAM or even the built-in storage of the Quest 2, so once you've decided on which model you want, you'll need to make sure that you've got enough space to store any games.

It would have been nice if there had been a MicroSD card slot on the side for easily expandable storage, but maybe this could be something that comes on the Meta Quest 3 in the future.

How Much Space Do Quest 2 Games Take Up?

The average Quest 2 game will utilise around 1.5 to 2GB of space on its internal hard drive, but some of its most popular titles are actually smaller, like Beat Saber, which only has a file size of 643MB, or Echo VR's 650MB.

With that being said, some of the more powerful and intense titles are larger in size, such as Myst at 9GB and Star Wars: Tales From The Galaxy's Edge at 5.69GB.

What this should equate to is you being able to get between 20 and 30 games on the base model's 128GB hard drive, and if you go for the 256GB model, then expect to get a fair few more.

Can I Upgrade Any Of The Quest 2's Components?

As a matter of fact, you can. You can't upgrade any of the internal system components, but there is nothing stopping you from investing in some accessories that can improve your playing experience, like changing the strap of the Quest 2, for instance.

If you choose to go for the official Oculus Elite Strap, for instance, it not only adds some extra support around your head but also a separate battery which in turn can double the battery life of your headset from 2 to 4 hours.

You can also have the choice of picking a new facial interface and foam replacement set for the Quest 2, which is designed to improve overall comfort and also hygiene with its wipeable foam and removable nose guard, which is also pretty handy.

Or, if you need some prescription lenses for the headset, then Oculus has partnered with VirtuClear in order to custom make lenses to suit people's individual strengths, which is handy.

Such accessories also add another string to the Quest 2's versatility when it comes to being a brilliant all-round VR headset, especially with its ability to also play SteamVR games when connected to a powerful gaming PC and to be cast to a TV if you want it to.

We'll be back with you soon with more VR news, guides and info, so be sure to check back in with us soon, and don't forget that the Meta Quest Pro could be on its way if you are looking to upgrade when the new headset's release date does roll around.
