The last two Black Fridays, Meta hasn't discounted the Quest 2, only offering a $50 gift card with the full-priced headset last November. This year, VR holdouts have a more tempting reason to buy one: The Meta Quest 2 128GB will be $50 off ($350) and the 256GB model $70 off ($430), plus both include Beat Saber and Resident Evil4 VR for free! That's another $70 value included for free.

You'll find the Quest 2 on sale at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, GameStop, or the Meta Store, "while supplies last." Meta has never had a better Black Friday deal and, if you're really planning on picking a ton of games this coming year, you might want to use the extra savings to upgrade to the 256GB version

Save $50 on the 128GB model or $70 on the 256GB model, plus receive two popular Quest 2 games for free: Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4. We think most people only need 128GB, as you can delete games you've finished without losing your cloud saves. 256GB is the better deal but it'll still cost you $70 more; only hardcore gamers planning to buy dozens of games or upload movie files will need it.

Once your headset arrives, you'll be able to download both Beat Saber ($30) and Resident Evil 4 VR ($40) for free, saving you even more money — though you'll probably end up spending some of that saved money on Beat Saber DLC like the Lady Gaga or Lizzo Music Packs

Beat Saber is the most popular game on the Quest Store for a reason, letting you immerse yourself in slashing away at music blocks to the rhythm of popular artists like The Weeknd or BTS, and you'll even burn some calories while doing so. And Resident Evil 4 VR is a fantastic port of the original, converting its third-person gameplay seamlessly into first-person for dozens of hours of shooter/ horror fun.

It's hands-down the best VR headset available today, and trust us when we say that Quest 2 deals almost never happen.
