Missed out on Black Friday and Cyber Monday for some of the biggest deals in VR? You’re in luck—as a part of Best Buy’s ‘Door Buster’ deal, an even better deal has come to the Oculus Rift + Touch bundle for one day only.
Update (6:00 AM ET, December 4th): And the Amazon deal is gone now too. Thanks for playing, folks. We’ll have our eyes peeled for the best deals in VR, so check back soon.
Update (10:50 AM ET, December 3rd): The Best Buy deal is gone, but it appears the $330 deal is still available from Amazon US, although it’s uncertain how long it will last. The updated article follows below:
Original Article (December 2nd, 2018): The deal, priced at $330 ($70 off MSRP), can be found at Amazon US and Best Buy(see update). This is an even better deal than what was available during Black Friday & Cyber Monday which saw the Rift priced at $350. On Amazon the deal is eligible for fast & free shipping with Amazon Prime.
If you bought the Rift at the earlier $350 deal, you may be able to get credit for the difference depending upon where and how you bought. See this article for details, and be sure to act fast to reference the $330 deal before it vanishes.
The package includes the Oculus Rift headset, two tracking sensors, two Touch motion controllers, and five premium pieces of bundled content: Robo Recall, Lucky’s Tale, Quill, Medium, and Dead & Buried. The total price of the bundled games comes to $110.
Toybox, the company’s impressive toy-filled sandbox featuring all sorts of flying whiz bangs, bouncing doodads, and explosive thingamajigs is also free, coming alongside a host of premium free content that will get you playing (and socializing) online against friend and foe.
If you’ve missed Best Buy’s one-day deal, you’ll still be able to take part in Oculus’ referral program. Just get a buddy with Oculus Rift or Oculus Go to shoot you a referral link, and you’ll instantly save 10% off Rift (or Go) when purchased at Oculus.com. The program also tosses up to $30 in Store credit to your bud for a single Rift referral, making it a win-win for everyone involved. The referral program is only valid through Oculus’ store.
