Best VR Deals Black Friday 2019: Oculus Quest, HTC Vive, PSVR

Virtual reality can be an expensive investment, but with Black Friday happening right now, there’s no reason to drop full price on most PC VR headsets. And with the announcement of Half-Life: Alyx, Black Friday is a great time to jump into the VR space with a brand-spankin’ new headset. There are quite a few Black Friday deals on headsets compatible with Half-Life: Alyx–the Oculus Quest, HTC Vive Pro, Oculus Rift S, and HTC Cosmos–but there are also some fantastic Black Friday deals on the PlayStation VR. Half-Life: Alyx may not be announced for Sony’s headset, but it still has a huge library of incredible games.

In fact, there are some excellent Black Friday discounts for all manners of VR. Whether you’re looking for an Oculus Quest, an HTC Vive Pro, or something in between, you’re sure to find a deal on a great headset. The only device that hasn’t seen a discount is Valve’s Index, though Index owners will get Half-Life: Alyx for free once it releases. We don’t expect any discounts on the high-end headset for Black Friday, but of course, we’ll report back if anything is announced.

In addition to the headsets, there’s also a selection of game deals available this Black Friday. At the moment, we’ve only seen PlayStation VR games discounted, but you can expect Steam and Oculus to jump on the deal train soon–Steam’s Black Friday sale is expect to go live on November 26. We’ll update this article with all of the best Black Friday game deals once they’re announced.

Oculus’s Black Friday deals were announced last week, while Walmart’s Black Friday offerings and GameStop’s Black Friday sale both offer some excellent options for discounted VR.

The promotion lasts until January 31, though you have until March 2 to activate your Quest and redeem the offer. The Quest comes in 64 GB and 128 GB storage options.

One of the best features of the Quest is being able to plug it into your PC with a USB 3.0 cable and use it as a PC-powered headset via Oculus Link. This means you’ll be ready for Half-Life: Alyx once it releases in March 2020.
