Virtual reality was the surprise hit for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with some excellent deals on several different headsets, including the Oculus Quest, HTC Vive Pro, and Oculus Rift S, in addition to the HTC Cosmos and PlayStation VR. Yes, the Cyber Monday weekend was in a great position after the announcement of Half-Life: Alyx. Unfortunately, most of those discounts have expired, but if you know where to look, you can still take advantage of some late Cyber Monday deals–or Cyber Week as some call it. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about scouring the internet for Cyber Week deals as we’ve already done that for you and collected what we found below.
Now, unfortunately, there are no Cyber Week deals on the Oculus Rift S, HTC Vive Pro, or HTC Cosmos. The prices of these headsets have gone back to normal, so if you want to pick one of them up, you’ll need to pay full price. Thankfully, there are still a couple of nice deals out there, especially if you want to grab a headset to be ready for Half-Life: Alyx. Both the Oculus Quest and Samsung HMD Odyssey+ will be able to play Half-Life: Alyx when it releases in March 2020–though if you own a Quest, you’ll need to connect it to your PC with a high-quality USB 3.0 cable.
The Oculus Quest will continue to have all three episodes of the Star Wars series, Vader Immortal, bundled until January 31–just make sure to activate your Quest within 30 days after purchase. The Microsoft Store is also still discounting the Samsung HMD Odyssey+, the same price it saw during Black Friday and Cyber Monday–though I wouldn’t expect that price to stick around for long. The PlayStation VR package with two Move controllers, Blood & Truth, and Everybody’s Golf VR is still discounted, but its price has gone up slightly. And the same goes for the media-focused Oculus Go headsets.

The promotion lasts until January 31, though you have until March 2 to activate your Quest and redeem the offer. The Quest comes in 64 GB and 128 GB storage options.
One of the best features of the Quest is being able to plug it into your PC with a USB 3.0 cable and use it as a PC-powered headset via Oculus Link. This means you’ll be ready for Half-Life: Alyx once it releases in March 2020.
