It released at $399, and has stayed at that price - until the Amazon Black Friday sales right now. It's not clear how long the Black Friday discount will be live. Competition has created more options than before. Another tethered VR headset that is quickly gaining traction, thanks to its stunning display and lower price tag, is the Sony PlayStation VR (PS VR) that is compatible with the PS4. Sure, it's not as powerful as some other goggles that have also been cut in price, but it's definitely the most affordable. Clicking on links may earn Deal Answers a commission. Better yet, Amazon US is offering $50 off both the GO and Rift models of Oculus as part of its Black Friday offering, saving you a hefty percentage if you pick one up while stocks last. Currently, it looks like they are choosing to discount only the Rift-S, which is a wired system. The Oculus Quest is an all-in-one, completely cord-free VR headset-no PC required-that comes with 64 GB or 128 GB of storage. Additionally, there are options from companies like Samsung Gear who have a mature VR ecosystem thats comparable to Oculus.
The PS VR is the cheapest and easiest way to get into VR for most users out there. It'll be available for $150 for the 32 GB version or $200 for the 64 GB version on Black Friday until December 2. The Vive Pro Headset is the cutting edge of PC gaming virtual reality, with dual OLED at 2,880 x 1, 600 resolution, with a insane sharp 615 PPI.
The PlayStation VR Mega Pack will get you the PlayStation VR headset, a PlayStation Camera, plus download codes for Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Skyrim VR, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Everybodys Golf VR, and PlayStation VR Worlds. However, if you're an HTC Vive owner, now might be the time to upgrade as the standalone Vive Pro headset is also on sale with $200 off if you're in the U.S. and £200 off in the United Kingdom as well.
If you own a PlayStation 4 and want to get into VR, thankfully the PlayStation VR (read Polygons PlayStation VR review for more) is also having its share of holiday deals.
