Last year, Black Friday offered almost no discounts for VR headsets. This year's batch was generally better, and what's more, they appear to be still be available after Black Friday itself has ended. These include deals on both the Oculus Quest 2 and HTC's Vive headsets, so read on below to see what's on offer.
In previous years, VR headset deals have often been dictated by the VR headset manufacturers themselves - Oculus and Vive, mainly - so prices have usually been pretty uniform across all the different retailers. However, with past savings sometimes stretching up to £100 / $100 off, these fixed savings certainly aren't to be sniffed at.
Alas, the Black Friday 2021 deals on VR headsets aren't as generous. The Oculus Quest 2 seems to be sticking to its usual price of £299 / $299, for example, but bundling in a £50 / $50 game credit voucher instead.
We'll be keeping this list up to date over the coming days, though, so it's still possible we'll see some better last-minute deals on Black Friday itself.

Amazon US are doing a similar thing to Amazon UK, offering you a $50 Amazon voucher rather than a specific Oculus one. However, you'll need to enter the promo code OCULUS50 at checkout to get it, so make sure you don't forget to do that. It's also only available on the 128GB model right now, as the 256GB version is sold out.
