The highly anticipated Half-Life: Alyx is only a couple months away, and if you haven’t picked up a VR headset yet, there are a lot of great ones to consider. One of the best VR headsets is the Samsung HMD Odyssey+. It regularly goes on sale, and right now, you can snag the VR headset for over $200 off.
Amazon currently has the HMD Odyssey+ for $294.19–and if you have Amazon Prime, it comes with free one/two-day shipping. It’s a fantastic price, one of the best we’ve seen since Black Friday. The Odyssey+ features sensor-free, inside-out tracking, so all you have to do is plug the headset into your PC and you’re good to go. On top of that, it boasts a beautiful AMOLED display, which produces more vibrant colours than its LCD counterpart.
For $294.19, you get the headset, two controllers, and two free months of Viveport Infinity, the latter of which grants you access to a huge library of VR games–think Netflix but for VR. Some of the games available on the service right now include Pistol Whip, Superhot VR, and Gorn.

The HMD Odyssey+ is also compatible with Half-Life: Alyx, as are most PC VR headsets. In addition to Valve’s upcoming game, there is a huge library of titles that can be enjoyed with Samsung’s VR headset. Any game on Steam with a “Windows Mixed Reality” tag works with the Odyssey+–thankfully, that accounts for the vast majority of Steam VR titles. WMR headsets also have access to their own specific apps on the Microsoft Store, though many of those experiences can also be found on Steam.
