Whether you spent yesterday snapping up bargains or lying on the couch in turkey-induced shame, a lot of Black Friday deals are running through the weekend. That includes this Meta Quest 2 deal which saves you up to $70 off the standalone VR headset and gives you two free games in the bargain.

Thanks to this superb deal, you can get the Meta Quest 2 for $349.99 for the 128GB version (opens in new tab) or $429 for the 256GB version (opens in new tab) from Amazon. The free games are survival horror Resident Evil 4 and the rhythm game Beat Saber, both of which are fantastic fun to play. And, while Amazon shows no sign of selling out, this deal is also available at Best Buy (opens in new tab) or Meta’s own site (opens in new tab).  

One thing that makes the Meta Quest 2 such a fantastic purchase, especially at this price, is that it's the ideal way to get into virtual reality. You don't need a PC, just turn it on and you're ready to go (though you can plug it into a PC if you so desire). And even if you're a seasoned VR veteran, VR becomes much more immersive when there's no wire to get in the way.

Meta Quest 2 Black Friday Bundle (128GB) - was $399.99, now $349.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)

Save $50 on the world's most popular VR headset, the Meta Quest 2, and get Resident Evil 4 VR and Beat Saber for free. A deal worthy of the Resident Evil 4 Merchant.

You can plug the Meta Quest 2 into a PC and play a wealth of VR games, but what makes the Quest 2 so fantastic - apart from the price - is that it can be used wirelessly.

Find yourself a space (or play seated if you’d prefer), slip on the helmet and prepare to step into the breathtaking and world of VR. You don’t even have to be adept at gaming - there are plenty of lower-pressure experiences to explore.

Speaking of games though, the two included here are a great way to start your VR collection. Resident Evil 4 VR is a remake of the 2005 classic that lets you do battle with possessed villagers and all manner of monstrosities while performing feats not possible in the original, like dual-wielding pistols.

On the other hand, Beat Saber is iconic and one of VR’s most popular games thanks to its “easy to pick up, difficult to master” rhythm-based gameplay that’ll make you feel like a true Jedi once the beat starts.

User reviews are overwhelmingly positive (opens in new tab), with an average customer rating of 4.8 stars out of 5. Reviews praise the standalone nature of the headset, the ease of setup, and the Quest 2’s simple but powerful UI.
