Looking for the best Amazon Prime Day VR deals? The site’s promotions have gone live in the UK and they feature savings on PSVR, HTC Vive Pro, Oculus Go, Oculus Rift and even Oculus Quest.
Prime Day is Amazon’s annual sales event. It’s running across June 15 + 16 and offers cut prices across the site’s entire range. This year’s Amazon Prime Dayh VR deals are surprisingly worthwhile. We’ll update this page when we know what the US deals look like.
There are two really excellent offers for Sony’s VR headset in the UK. For starters, there’s that PSVR Starter Pack for £179.99 (usual price £234.04). That price gets you the headset and the PlayStation Camera needed to track it. There’s also a free copy of PlayStation VR Worlds, Sony London’s VR minigame compilation.
Easily the best of the two bundles, though, is the PSVR Mega Pack for £209 (usually £299.99). This generous package includes PSVR, the camera, PSVR Worlds and then four other VR games. They include some of the best games on the system like Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, Wipeout VR and Skyrim VR. There’s also Doom VFR which, alongside Skyrim and PSVR Worlds, can be played with Move controllers that aren’t featured in either bundle.
Oculus Quest Bundles
Facebook and Oculus’ excellent standalone VR headset is too fresh to get a massive price cut. That said, Amazon is throwing in a little bonus for anyone that picks up a Quest today. You can get the 64GB model for the usual price of £399.99 with a free carry case thrown in. Take note that this is not the officially branded Oculus Quest carry case; it’s a third-party one we haven’t tried. It has room for your headset and controllers, though. You can get the 128GB model with the case for the price of £499.99 too.
Oculus Go Bundles
Oculus’ first standalone headset may no longer be the new kid on the VR block, but it’s still worth a look for newcomers. The 32GB version is available for £159 (usually £194) and the 64GB version is going for £209 (usually £244). Go isn’t as advanced a headset as Quest, with restrictive tracking, but it’s a good device for VR viewing and casual gaming.
Original Oculus Rift
Surprisingly, it looks like some of the last-available original Oculus Rift units are on sale. There’s a small saving here; you can pick up the PC VR headset for £329.99 (usually £349.99). This will likely be one of the last opportunities you have to buy the original version of the device, which was replaced by the more accessible Rift S earlier this year. Some prefer the original’s tracking solution to the inside-out featured on S.
HTC Vive Pro Bundles
If you feel like going all out with the Amazon Prime Day VR deals then we’ve saved the most expensive for last. The HTC Vive Pro full kit has been bundled with the Vive Wireless Adapter and a Pro clip for £1,574.99 (usually £1,664.98). That’s a lot of money, but you’re getting a lot of headset. Firstly the Vive Pro features an upgraded resolution compared to the original Vive. The Wireless Adapter, meanwhile, lets you play the thing untethered from a PC via streaming. Even with all this, though, you might want to consider the more consumer-oriented Valve Index or upcoming Vive Cosmos before springing for this.
