This Black Friday Oculus Go is getting some discounts on both the 32GB and 64GB model.
The Oculus Go discounts are just one of many upcoming Black Friday deals for VR. This year Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 28, which makes Black Friday November 29. ‘Black Friday’ is just a marketing term, though, and doesn’t actually mean the sales start on that Friday.
In many cases in the weeks leading up to the date you’ll find lots of deals already available and even that week many retailers will launch sales on the 28th itself, or even earlier on the 27th, and they’ll carry through until the end of the month.
In terms of the Oculus Go specifically, the 2018-era standalone 3DoF mobile headset is getting some steep discounts. The 32GB model will be discounted from $199 to just $149 and the 64GB model will be taken down from $249 to $199. The discounts should be available from November 28 until December 2nd, so you’ve only got a few days to snap up a discounted Go if you’ve been eyeing one.
The deals will be available on oculus.com, Amazon and Best Buy. If you’re unfamiliar with VR, keep in mind the Oculus Go is a headset with limited interaction and comfort that’s meant for more entertainment consumption (like watching movies) rather than the active VR games the newer camera-equipped Oculus Quest makes possible.
