In the VR world, Oculus Quest is perhaps the most exciting headset on the market right now, which means it’s going to be hard to find it on sale. The Facebook-owned Oculus’ official Black Friday 2019 sale on the wireless headset isn’t as big as we’d hoped, it does have a cople of other deals up its sleeve, even if they’re not as steep as some of the PS4 PlayStation VR headset deals right now. But with Valve recently announcing Half-Life: Alyx, now is probably a good time to get a PC-compatible VR machine, and both the Quest and Rift S can play the game when it releases in March 2020.
The Oculus Quest Black Friday deal isn’t much, but it’s a good starter pack. It comes with the headset, the latest Oculus Touch controllers, and all three episodes of its Star Wars VR series, Vader Immortal, and you can get it until January 31. You’ll need to activate your Oculus Quest within 30 days of your purchase to get Vader Immortal for free, with March 2 being the last possible day to redeem the offer.
While the Quest doesn’t receive a special price, Oculus is discounting the rest of its VR headsets for Black Friday. Starting November 28 until December 2, the Oculus Rift S and both versions of the Oculus Go will be discounted by $50.
Facebook also plans to discount its Portal devices, which are touchscreen displays that let you video call your friends and family, display photos, and control your smart home with built-in Alexa support, in addition to a lot more. The Portal, Portal Mini, and Portal TV are all discounted by $50, while the Portal Plus sees a price cut of $30. You can see the full list of deals below.
Tech News: Black Friday Oculus Rift VR deals
Oculus Quest 64 GB or 128 GB + Vader Immortal bundle | $400 or $500
Oculus is bundling all three episodes of its Star Wars VR series, Vader Immortal, with every purchase of the Oculus Quest headset until January 31. 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. There’s no discount, but you save $30 getting the Star Wars VR series for free. On top of that, Vader Immortal is a great way for Star Wars fans to experience virtual reality.
Oculus Rift S | $350 ($400)
Oculus Rift S is the latest revision of Oculus’s PC VR headset. You’ll need a PC with the hardware specs to run the VR headset and its software, but everything else comes with the package, including the Touch controllers.
Oculus Go 32 GB or 64 GB | $150 ($200) or $200 ($250)
The Oculus Go is a completely portable headset that’s better used for movies, shows, and other media than gaming. It’ll be available for $150 for the 32 GB version or $200 for the 64 GB version on Black Friday until December 2.
Portal | $130 ($180)
Facebook’s Portal is a 10-inch, touchscreen display that lets you video chat with friends and family through Facebook’s Messenger and WhatsApp–thankfully, they can use any device they want to communicate with you. The cool thing about the Portal is that the Smart Camera automatically follows your position by panning and zooming to get you in the frame. On top of all that, you can control your smart home and listen to music with Alexa support as well as display photos while you’re not talking to anyone. For Black Friday, the Portal will be $130 until December 2.
Portal Mini | $80 ($130)
The Portal Mini is exactly like the regular Portal–except it’s mini. The eight-inch Portal does everything the 10-inch does, including the Smart Camera movement, Alexa support, and photo display. And until December 2, it’ll cost $80.
Portal TV | $99 ($150)
The Portal TV plugs into your television, turning your television into a Portal device. It also gives you the ability to watch and listen to streaming services like Prime Video, CBS Access, and Spotify. Like other Portal devices, it features the Smart Camera, Alexa support, and more. It’ll cost $100 during Black Friday, from November 28 to December 2.
Portal + | $250 ($280)
The Portal Plus features everything the other portals do except with a much bigger, 15.6-inch 1080p screen. It also comes with two 20w speakers that offer richer sound than the other Portal devices. For Black Friday, it’ll cost $250 from November 28 to December 2.
