The Best Black Friday Deals for VR Headsets, Apps & Games

Getting your own virtual reality (VR) setup at home used to be costly, requiring not only an expensive headset but also a full-blown gaming PC. Not anymore: The latest generation of all-in-one devices has made VR a lot more affordable, and deep discounts for the holiday season serve as another incentive to finally make the jump.

Here are the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for VR headsets, apps and games:

  • Oculus Go: Facebook’s entry-level all-in-one headset is on sale for $149, down from $199, at multiple retailers starting on Thanksgiving Day. A version with more storage that usually sells for $249 will be discounted $50 as well. Participating retailers can be found via the Oculus website.
