In just over a week’s time the annual Black Friday sales event happens, bringing with it plenty of discounts on technology that you’ve been after, just in time for the festive period. Today Microsoft has announced its Black Friday deals, which include the newly released Windows Mixed Reality head-mounted displays (HMDs).
The headsets only launched last month in conjunction with the Windows Fall Creators update for Win 10, so it’s surprising to see the devices discounted so early on in their lifespan. That’s good news for consumers however as it means they can save up to $100 USD when purchasing either an Acer, Dell Visor, HP, Lenovo Explorer, or Samsung Odyssey headset.
Additionally, so those who also need a new PC to run a Windows HMD, Microsoft has savings of up to $249 on PC bundles from Acer, Dell, and HP. If you want to know more about Windows Mixed Reality headsets, check out VRFocus ’ guide on the devices .
While that’s all the virtual reality (VR) related savings available from Microsoft, the company has plenty of other deals going. There’s:
- $329 off the Surface Pro i5 256GB and $229 off the Surface Pro i5 128GB
- Save $199 with the purchase of Surface Laptop and the new Harmon Kardon Invoke speaker
- Xbox One S will start from just $189, plus save $50 off Xbox One S 1TB and 500GB bundles
Last months launch was a fairly subdued affair, even though Microsoft had secured plenty of big name VR experiences for consumers to play. These included zombie shooter Arizona Sunshine, SUPERHOT VR, Space Pirate Trainer, Fantastic Contraption, Skyworld and many more. No official sales figures have been released just yet so Microsoft maybe hoping to bolster these numbers with Black Friday savings.
The Black Friday deals are available through the Microsoft Store, starting from 23rd and running through to 27th November, 2017.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Microsoft and Windows Mixed Reality headsets, reporting back with the latest updates and deals.
