Save $50 and get $50 gift card
If you want a VR headset, Amazon's Black Friday 2023 deal on the Meta Quest 2 is certainly worth checking out. Over at Amazon, you can snag the 128GB Meta Quest 2 for $249 or the 256GB Meta Quest 2 for $299. You'll also get a free $50 Amazon gift card with your purchase.

Other major retailers, including Target and GameStop, have the discount plus $50 gift card promotion, too. Meanwhile, Best Buy's offer comes with the Quest 2 Elite Strap instead of a gift card.

On a technical level, these headsets pack a powerful VR punch. Each LCD lens offers a resolution of 1,832 x 1,920 per eye with a 90Hz refresh rate. 3D positional audio, hand tracking, and haptic feedback help make the experience highly immersive. The big draw here is that the Quest 2 headset is a standalone wireless device, so you won't have to worry about tripping over a cable when you get into an especially intense game of Beat Saber.
This means that you can take your VR experience anywhere you want, but if you're looking to stay at home, there is a handy Guardian Boundary feature that allows you to define a safe space for your VR activities.
