  • Sale price: $179
  • Original price: $199

The Oculus Go, an entry-level VR headset from Oculus, doesn’t require you to have a fancy PC to use it. In fact, this mobile VR quality headset doesn’t even need a smartphone to run. All of the processing power is stored in the headset. The all-in-one headset is lightweight and has access to all the games available on Gear VR, as well as some exclusive apps. You can also use it to watch live sports, TV shows, and more.

  • Sale price: $349
  • Original price: $399

The Oculus Rift offers high-powered PC VR. This bundle comes with two Oculus Touch controllers and six free games: Lucky’s Tale, Robo Recall, Quill, Medium, Dead and Buried, and Toybox. The Oculus Rift features room-scale VR and great tracking to give you an immersive experience. You need a gaming PC to connect to the Rift, so make sure your graphics card and RAM (at least 8GB) are up to snuff. For graphics cards, you need a Nvidia GTX 1050Ti/AMD Radeon RX 470 or better.

HTC Vive Pro

  • Sale price: $699
  • Original price: $799

For VR enthusiasts, the HTC Vive Pro is a premium option with fantastic performance. The Vive Pro has 360 degree headset and controller tracking that feels startlingly precise. In terms of resolution, the Vive Pro is unparalleled. Visuals are incredibly crisp and clear, with a maximum resolution of 2880 x 1660, a marked increase over the original Vive headset. The headset is comfortable to wear and easy to setup, too. If you’re on the fence about spending $700 on a VR headset, make sure to check out our review. The major downside of the Vive Pro is that you have to buy controllers separately.

HTC Vive Pro Virtual Reality System

  • Sale price: $1199
  • Original price: $1399

The Vive Pro “2.0” is marketed more towards businesses than the average gamer. The price sort of gives that away. It comes with two Steam VR 2.0 base stations for even more precise tracking and a pair of Vive controllers. With the Vive tracker ecosystem, you can pull real-life objects into view. Again, though, the Vive Pro Virtual Reality System is marketed for business use, such as aerospace and automotive companies.

These are the best PS5 game Black Friday deals to shop today
Side view of Ellie from The Last of Us Part I.

As someone who collects physical games, I love Black Friday. It’s an easy way to boost my gaming library by picking up a batch of games at a discount. This year’s sales extravaganza is an especially exciting one in that regard. Last year, we were only one year out from the PlayStation 5, so Sony was a little more careful about its discounts considering how light its library of big console exclusives was at that point. With a more robust PS5 library in 2022, Sony seems much more generous about slashing prices this year.

If you’re looking to build your PS5 library, you might want to turn your attention to Best Buy’s Black Friday gaming deals. Tons of titles are discounted this weekend, and that includes most of the PS5’s first-party exclusives. Here are five deals that need to be on your radar, whether you’re a PS5 collector or a new console owner looking to build a backlog.

Prime Day vs. Black Friday: When’s the best time to shop?

Two of the biggest sales events of the year are Amazon's Prime Day and Black Friday, but how do you know which is the best one to shop? And are there key differences between the two events? With Prime Day coming up fast now that the Prime Day date for 2022 has been confirmed, you may be thinking you should favor that sale. Read on as we weigh up Prime Day versus Black Friday and explain everything you need to know about the two sales events.
What is Prime Day?
Prime Day is Amazon's annual sales event to mark its birthday. It's exclusively for Amazon Prime members rather than anyone with an Amazon account, but it's possible to access the deals via an Amazon Prime free trial if you subscribe at the same time as the event.

After two years of the event moving around due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Prime Day 2022 returns to its traditional July slot and will run July 12 and July 13. As well as that, there will be early deals commencing June 21 in the run up to the big event.

Why I passed on $500 off the MacBook Pro for a MacBook Air on Black Friday
Macbook Air M1 logo.

The MacBook Pro 13 is $500 off at Best Buy right now, which would normally be too good of a deal to ignore. But I passed on it in favor of saving $150 on the MacBook Air, which is a machine that normally isn't as powerful as its Pro counterpart. This year, however, things are different.
