Holiday bells are jingling and everyone’s getting excited about celebrating the Winter holidays with their loved ones. A part of those festivities, at least in the United States, is to spend the day immediately after Thanksgiving engaging in free-for-all brawls in markets all over the country for Black Friday sales.
Virtual reality and virtual reality gaming is not an exception from this craze. While Black Friday is still a few weeks out, many businesses are already announcing VR-centric bundles and Black Friday discounts for those who want to jump into VR gaming while saving a little bit of cash. This, in addition to the recent price-drops from HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, makes this a prime season for buying into VR.
While there are sure to be more discounts announced in the weeks leading up to Black Friday, we’ve rounded up the prominent ones thus far and placed them below for your reading convenience. In particular, we notice a distinct lack of HTC Vive discounts- an issue we hope to see remedied before Black Friday proper comes around.
We’ll keep you updated here at VR World as more sales are posted. In the meantime, tell us: do any of these Black Friday deals or bundles catch your eye? We find the PS4/PSVR deals at Target are particularly interesting, allowing you to get a fully-fledged VR gaming experience for only $400.
Comment below and let us know if any of these deals catch your eye, or if you’ll be waiting a bit longer before buying into VR.
Note: Some of these discounts, like the Newegg and Target ones, will not be active at the time of posting.
