Black Friday Oculus Quest 2 deals offered up some of the most exciting savings of the year in November, but what can we expect for 2022's offerings? This year we're once again expecting discounts to hit bundles the hardest. However, considering the headset will have been on the market for an extra year by the time Black Friday gaming deals roll around for 2022, it's possible that Oculus Quest 2 deals could finally offer some cash off the headset. That's a very optimistic suggestion - this is already a well-priced headset at $299. However, if you're going to save some cash on that base price this year, it's likely Black Friday Oculus Quest 2 offers will be the cause.
If you're after a more reliable path to savings, though, you'll be better off picking up a few accessories with your headset. Last year retailers across the US and UK were offering $50 / £50 gift cards with every purchase. At the very least, we expect the same offer to be repeated in 2022.
As it stands today, the Starter bundle offers up a headset with a carrying case for $348, the Streamer bundle includes a cable for use with your PC for $378, and the Pro bundle packages a carrying case and Elite Strap in with the headset for $397.
Of course, these are just the official bundles. We've seen retailers like Best Buy and Walmart, in particular, offering extra controllers, comfort grips, carrying cases, headphones, and wrist straps for a discounted rate and this is where we'll likely see the biggest savings. Black Friday Oculus Quest 2 deals will favor those who want to get all the extras from day one, then, with the highest value bundles sitting in the region of $399 - $499.
Of course, it's also likely that we'll see individual savings on these accessories by themselves. So, if you've already managed to snag yourself a headset, or you're happy to pay full price on Black Friday itself, you may also find savings on the Elite Strap, replacement controllers, or headsets specifically designed for the system - like the Logitech G333.
Black Friday Oculus Quest 2 deals: FAQs
When will Black Friday Oculus Quest 2 deals begin?
Black Friday Oculus Quest 2 deals will officially kick off on November 25 in 2022. However, last year we were seeing that all-important $50 / £50 gift card available from as early as the Sunday before Thanksgiving week. That means we'd recommend keeping a close eye out for offers from November 18 onwards.
