Oculus Rift With Touch Controllers Black Friday 2017 Deal Makes VR Even Cheaper

Within the sea of sales this Black Friday shopping season emerges the Oculus Rift virtual reality platform packaged with the Oculus Touch controllers and two sensors for $350 USD. This is the cheapest the bundle has ever been, slashing $50 off the standard price. You can snag the bundle on the official Oculus store now until November 27 while supplies last. Several retailers are also offering the same price for the Rift and Touch bundle, like Newegg, Amazon, the Microsoft Store, and Best Buy.

The offers from Best Buy, Amazon, and Microsoft include six free games: Lucky’s Tale, Robo Recall, Quill, Toy Box, Dead and Buried, and Medium. The deals from Newegg and Oculus itself packs in the aforementioned titles and a seventh game on top called Dragon Front.

While you get two sensors with the purchase of a Rift, you’ll need a third one to get a room-scale experience; an additional sensor will run you another $60. Room-scale gives users full 360-degree head tracking and motion detection for a complete VR experience.

The Oculus Rift originally launched at $600 without VR-specific controllers, but that changed when the Touch came out last year in December. Thus, a Rift and Touch package was $800, but in less than a year, the VR platform is now available for less than half its original price. Those hoping to jump into VR should be aware of the minimum and recommended PC specs to run VR games:

Minimum Specs:

  • CPU: Intel Core i3-6100 / AMD FX-4350
  • GPU (Nvidia): GTX 1050 Ti / GTX 960
  • GPU (AMD): RX 470 / R9 290
  • Memory: 8GB RAM

Recommended Specs:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X (or better)
  • GPU (Nvidia): GTX 1060 / GTX 970 (or better)
  • GPU (AMD): RX 480 / R9 290 (or better)
  • Memory: 8GB RAM (or more)

These Games Do Post-Release Content Right

In the wake of Star Wars Battlefront II’s loot crate controversy, The Lobby crew sat down to talk about the games that do post-release content well.

These encompass everything from first-person shooters, to isometric dungeon-crawlers, to Japanese RPGs. As more games move toward the “games-as-service category,” we want to point to the standout examples that prioritize player experience and value over simple money grabs.

Black Friday 2017 is right around the corner, and that means tons of sale prices to be had on video game consoles, accessories, and software. Even very recent releases that just came out–things like Need for Speed Payback, Assassin’s Creed Origins, and Call of Duty: WWII–will be on sale. One of the best action RPGs in recent years is The Witcher III: Wild Hunt will also enjoy some substantial discounts at a number of retailers.

Next to Grand Theft Auto V, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt has been one of the more enduring and critically acclaimed games this decade, where a single playthrough on the base game alone can take over 100 hours. It’s never too late to start and the current sales make jumping into the lands of Skellige Islands and Novigrad all the more inviting.

Based on the ads that have been released so far, GameStop and Best Buy have the best deals, depending whether you want to start off with the base game at $20 through Best Buy or go for the full experience with the Complete Edition, featuring all the DLC and Expansion Packs at $25 at GameStop.

On the digital side, the Xbox Store’s Black Friday sale has begun and you can get the base game for $24. The PlayStation Store Black Friday sale has a better deal with $20 for the Complete Edition. The PC version of the base game is also available for that price on GOG while you can get the Game of the Year Edition on Steam for $20 as well.

If you’re wondering whether The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is worth picking up, you can read our full review. Kevin VanOrd awarded it a 10/10 and said, “The Witcher 3 depicts the immediate brutality of battle in great detail is not a surprise; many games fill the screen with decapitated heads and gory entrails. It’s the way this incredible adventure portrays the personal tragedies and underhanded opportunities that such battles provide that makes it so extraordinary.”
