As we head into the weekend of non-stop Black Friday game deals (opens in new tab), many are wondering how they might find an affordable entry point into playing Half-Life: Alyx - the virtual reality prequel to Half-Life 2 - once it launches on PC in March next year. 

Most VR headsets, especially for PC, can run up into the thousands when it comes to upfront costs, but Facebook's Oculus products represent one of the more affordable range of virtual reality devices out there. Better yet, Amazon US is offering $50 off both the GO and Rift models of Oculus as part of its Black Friday offering, saving you a hefty percentage if you pick one up while stocks last.

If you're wondering about the cheapest way to make sure you're prepared for Half-Life: Alyx next year, look no further than this stellar deal, as Valve has already confirmed that all PC VR headsets will be compatible with its upcoming shooter.
