Need £100 off an Oculus Quest 2? Merely Purchase Two – VRFocus
Buying in bulk has always been the cheaper option, be it a 50kg sack of potatoes that may never be eaten or the great deal for 10 scarves in the summer. Tech is a little different and usually offers unique discounts on Black Friday. For the next week, Oculus is bucking this trend. Just buy one Oculus Quest 2 at full price and get £ 100 for another.
Yes, that gets you two 128GB Oculus Quest 2s for £ 500, which isn’t a bad deal. Especially after you and a buddy have been considering jumping into virtual reality (VR) for the first time or switching VR platforms. This offer is only available through next Monday, September 27th, on Oculus.com. It’s also available for the 256GB model.
The deal comes almost a month after Facebook began reselling the headset after a brief hiatus due to the facial interface issue, with some customers reporting skin irritation. During that period, the company ditched the base 64GB model in favor of a 128GB version while still maintaining the same price tag of £ 299. So if you go for the offer, you will get the newer Oculus Quest 2 Edition that comes with a silicone case in the box.
Silicone cases have been a widely used accessory for the Oculus Quest 2 almost since its inception, which is especially useful when playing more energetic games as it prevents the foam surface from soaking up sweat. A much more hygienic solution when swapping the headset between players as it only requires a quick wipe. This is less of a problem if you buy two headsets at the same time.
There’s one more good reason for two friends to get into the deal, all of the multiplayer games you can have in VR. While multiplayer video games struggled in the early years, titles like Population: One, Demeo, and Echo VR now focus tightly on that aspect and make for great social experiences.
Or is it all part of Facebook’s plan to sell more Oculus Quest 2s before Facebook Connect next month? CEO Mark Zuckerberg will be held as a virtual showcase on October 28th and could reveal more details about the Oculus Quest Pro, a headset that could include features like eye tracking. If that happens VRFocus will keep you updated.
