Virtual reality handsets are a great source of entertainment and people have been reluctant to buy them because of their high price. This Black Friday, i.e., 23rd November will witness significant price drops and discounts for a variety of products including VR headsets and games. Brands like Oculus, HTC, Samsung, and Google will be listing their releases of this season and will be available to consumers through Amazon, Walmart, and other online and offline stores.
Oculus Rift VR Headset
The Oculus Rift bundle was released in 2016 and had a price of 800$ during that time. Last year it was available for 599$ without the touch controllers. The price of the Oculus Rift has currently reached between $349 – 399$ including the Touch Bundle. It is expected to go down to $299 for the Friday sale.

Amazon’s prime membership will grant special offers, faster delivery and will make deals available to you 30 minutes earlier.
The Oculus bundle with controllers and Marvel Powers United game costs $399 and will have a decent discount on Black Friday.
Oculus Rift + Touch VR headset for $349 at Best Buy
Sony PlayStation VR Headset
The Sony PlayStation VR is a headset which is directly connected to the console of PS4 games. It is a medium priced product and is a great option for those who already have a PS4 and want to have a different gaming experience. We recommend you to buy VR bundles which will contain 1 or 2 games along with the VR rather than going for the VR alone as the bundles will have better discounts.
The Sony VR bundle which includes Sony PlayStation VR and two games (Moss Bundle + Astro bot rescue mission) currently costs about 299$ in Amazon. The VR alone costs 215$ and is expected to have a price drop up to 164$
Walmart will have a price drop of 100$, and the VR will be available at 199$. The product will be available online from November 22, 12 am and in stores at the 5 pm local time.
Lenovo Mirage Solo VR Headset
The Mirage Solo VR is one of the first headsets to feature WorldSense. This VR gives access to about 250 Daydream apps and mind-blowing VR Travel experience along with gaming.
The Mirage camera is also getting a slash of 100$, the present cost being $200
HTC Vive Headset
The HTC Vive is one of the expensive VR sets in the market and will run on PCs with an average spec condition. The product package consists of 2 base stations and two wireless controllers along with the headset. We cannot expect much of a deal for this product as it recently had a price drop of $100 and the revised cost was $499.
The HTC Vive will be available on top stores like Walmart, Target and Best Buy. The subscribers of Viveport will be able to subscribe to any of the five games (Accounting+, Arizona Sunshine, Superhot VR, Sairento VR, and The Wizards) for just $1 which otherwise will cost $120.
