Amazon deal: Save $150 on Oculus Rift S VR headsets
Amazon Australia is selling the Oculus Rift S PC-Powered VR Gaming Headset for $499 - a discount of $150.
The Oculus Rift S is one of the best virtual reality headsets on the market. It was recently crowned best premium VR headset in our 2020 Best Of roundup, beating out such heavy hitters as the HTC Vive Cosmos. Here's what we had to say:
If you have a powerful PC and don't mind being tethered to it by a wire, Oculus Rift S is currently the best option available in Australia for playing high-end VR games.
The headset has a native resolution of 2560x1440 pixels, a 110-degree field of view and an impressive 80Hz refresh rate. It's also very comfortable thanks to the soft, lightweight and well designed padding.
Unlike some high-end VR solutions, the Rift S doesn't require external cameras to track the player. Nevertheless, it does a great job of replicating your movements in-game. All in all, it's an excellent way for PC gamers to experience virtual reality.
For a limited time, you can buy the Oculus Rift S for $499 over on Amazon. That's a saving of $150, or 23% off the RRP. This deal will only be available for a limited time, so if you're keen we suggest getting in fast!

Buy for $499 (Previously $649)
It's worth noting that the Oculus Rift S is not a standalone VR headset. Instead, you will need access to a decently-specced PC to run it. If you want an all-in-one unit that works by itself, we recommend the Oculus Quest 2 which retails for $479.
