Get £ 50 voucher with the Oculus quest 2 at Currys
Oculus quest 2 VR headset: £ 299 with free £ 50 voucher, Currys.co.uk
The Oculus quest 2 was released in August of this year, so since it’s relatively new to the market, this Christmas season will likely be its first round of bumper sales. The stock will no doubt go quickly, so we recommend that you jump in early if the quest is on your watchlist this year.
In terms of features, the Oculus Quest 2 comes in two flavors. The smaller 128GB model typically costs £ 299, while the larger 256GB model will set you back around £ 399. But now, while the prices haven’t been lowered, you can get a £ 50 voucher when purchasing either version of Currys.
The headset focuses on accessibility, and it remains the cheapest way for most people to get into virtual reality. It is lightweight, wireless and therefore easy to carry and has a crystal clear high definition display.
Cleverly, the Oculus quest 2 also offers all-in-one games, which means that if you’ve owned any Oculus products before, you can access your old games as well as new titles through the content library.
There’s also no need to connect a console or PC – as long as you have a wireless internet connection and a Facebook account you can log in with, you’re good to go out of the box.
