Want an Oculus Quest 2? You can’t beat Meta’s best ever Black Friday deal

Black Friday is here and if you’ve been looking to pick up an Oculus Quest 2 then there’s never been a better time thanks to Meta’s Black Friday Oculus Quest 2 deals

This is probably one of the year’s best Black Friday deals in general as not only can you pick up the Oculus Quest 2 at a discount – the 128GB model is down $50 / £50 to $349.99 / £349.99, and the 256GB version is down $70 / £70 to $429.99 / £429.99 – but you get free games too. It’s not just any free games either. The free games are Resident Evil 4 VR and Beat Saber  (two of the best Oculus Quest 2 games out there).

Sure, the Quest 2 was cheaper before August 2022 when its price was hiked $100 / £100 but this bundle packs in more than enough value to make this Meta’s best-ever VR deal.

Oculus Quest 2 (128 GB) Black Friday bundle: was $469.99 now $349.99 at Amazon
If you've been after an Oculus Quest 2, this is the perfect time to pick one up. In our four-and-a-half-star review we commended the Quest 2's solid specs and easy-to-use nature, plus there are some great games on the platform (which this bundle includes two of: Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 VR).View Deal

Oculus Quest 2 (256 GB) Black Friday bundle: was $589.99 now $429.99 at Amazon
If you like the deal above but want a VR headset with more storage, this bundle with the 256GB Quest 2 is the way to go. That said, we've found that you need a lot of VR games to fill even the old 64GB Quest 2, so the 128GB model above should be fine if you're on a budget – especially since the specs are otherwise identical.View Deal

Oculus Quest 2 (128 GB) Black Friday bundle: was £452.99 now £349.99 at Amazon
In our four-and-a-half-star review, we celebrated the Oculus Quest 2's easy to use design, as well as its good visuals and specs (especially for its price). This deal doesn't make it as cheap as it used to be (£299 before a price hike) but it's still an amazing bundle offer that includes a lot of bang for your buck.View Deal

Oculus Quest 2 (256 GB) Black Friday bundle: was $552.99 now £429.99 at Amazon
This version of the Oculus Quest 2 bundle includes the same great games and VR headset, except it comes with more storage (256GB instead of 128GB). Admittedly, you don't need this much space unless you plan to download a lot (and we really mean a lot) of VR games, but if you want to go all-in on the metaverse this bundle could be perfect for you.View Deal

The Oculus Quest 2 is one of the best VR headsets on the market, especially if you're on a budget. While it's not as impressive as the Valve Index in terms of specs, or normally as cheap as the Pico 4, Meta's device has more than a few things going for it.

First, unlike the Index, Meta's headset is standalone. If you want to connect it to a PC you can but to play a VR game you don't have to. You also don't need to set up any annoying towers in the real world either, you just have to clear a space and draw a quick outline once you put the headset on so it knows where is safe and you're ready to go.

Secondly, while the Pico 4 is normally slightly cheaper at £379 (it's only available in the UK) and comes with slightly better specs, its software is definitely inferior right now. Generally, the Pico OS doesn't feel as fine-tuned as what Meta's hardware runs on and the games on the Pico 4 aren't as good as those on the Quest platform. Not only does it lack great titles like Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 VR, but the Pico 4's version of games like After the Fall and Walkabout Mini Golf lack content that's available on the rival hardware.

That said, if you are in the UK you might still want to take a look at Pico's Black Friday 2022 deal as you can get the headset and three free games – RuinsMagus, After the Fall, and Les Mills BodyCombat – for as little as £379.99. Just note that the deal won't be live until November 24, and it ends on November 28, 2022 (like all the other Cyber Monday deals).

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

These Android games support Bluetooth controllers and they're better for it

Gaming is simply better with a controller in your hands. Gaming on Android typically requires you to settle for using touchscreen controls.

Since so few games provide this feature, we've taken the time to test and compiled our list of the best games that let you play with the best Bluetooth controller in your hands. We'd also recommend getting a Style Ring or PopSocket which can help prop your phone up at a good angle for gaming.
