Get the unimaginable Oculus Quest 2 VR headset for £294
With people stuck indoors for the third time in a year, it’s another great time to escape into a world of virtual reality. And now the Oculus Quest 2 – the most versatile VR headset – is the lowest price ever.
Granted, it’s nowhere near the lowest, but given that it has been quite difficult to find an Oculus Quest 2 in stock over the past few months, any kind of discount is well worth celebrating any kind of discount. In any case, you can purchase the 64GB device at Currys PC World for £ 294 if you enter the code “FNDDGAMING” at checkout.
What Makes the Oculus Quest 2 Better than Its Competitors? In short, its flexibility – you don’t have to set up tracking cameras in the room like the first generation VR headsets and it can work two ways.
First, when it comes straight out of the box, you can use it – start it up, buckle it up, and play some of the best VR experiences natively with no additional hardware. Beat Saber, Super Hot, and The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners all have versions made for the hardware, and they’re a great taste of what makes VR so special.
However, if you have a computer that offers enough grunt to run VR games, you can plug it into your PC and let your GPU take the graphics to the next level with exclusive experiences like Half Life: Alyx and Microsoft Flight Simulator. This requires a special cable, and while you can spend £ 89 on the official Oculus cable, a £ 30 third-party lead will do the job too.
In all honesty, it’s great with or without a PC connection. As our reviewer Will Georgiadis wrote when he put it through its paces, “There’s no easier way to put this: if you want a VR headset, buy the Oculus Quest 2. It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced one PC VR gamers or a virtual novice; The Quest 2 is hands down the only headset worth your money. “
Saving £ 5 is clearly not the be-all and end-all of a £ 300 product, but it doesn’t hurt – and if you want to beat the lockdown blues this is a great way to do it.
