Thinking of jumping into the world of VR but want to make sure you get the best deal?
Snag an Oculus Rift and Touch controller bundle for just $350 for a limited time, the same price the bundle went on sale for on Black Friday. The sale discounts the bundle $50 and you can purchase it anywhere from Amazon to Best Buy.
You get the Oculus Rift headset, two tracking sensors, two Oculus Touch motion controllers, as well as games like Dead & Buried, Quill, Medium, Robo Recall, and Lucky's Tale. That's definitely a good start for your burgeoning VR collection, for sure. Next you have to make sure you add in Beat Saber too, for good measure, of course!
If you take part in the Oculus Rift or Oculus Go referral program, you can even get an extra 10% off the sale price. Find a friend with an Oculus Rift or Oculus Go to give you a code to use when you check out and your final price will be just $315. Your friend will also get $20 to $30 credit in the Oculus Store for helping you out. Amazon users can also sign up for an Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card to get $30 more off the card without the need for a referral.
The Oculus Go is the newest product in the Oculus family, and News Editor Charles Singletary, Jr. took it for a spin recently in his review of Covert VR. Here's what he had to say:
"The concept is engaging and the game is fun occasionally, but input on the VR end is lacking. Playing on the mobile side is well done and the interface is attractive, but using the Oculus Go’s touchpad for movement is rough. In more difficult areas, that results in frustration for both players and hurts the experience overall. Ultimately, it feels like a secret spy experience with ambitions that want to spread its wings but the Oculus Go won’t let it get completely off the ground."
