If Half-Life: Alyx finally piqued your interest in VR, but you don't want to spend ridiculous amount of cash on a headset, here's a deal that might work for your. The Samsung HMD Odyssey+ Windows Mixed Reality headset with controllers is currently on sale again for $230 on Amazon (opens in new tab). The headset had recently gone through several deep price cuts in the last few months from its list price of $500.
The redesign of the Odyssey headset uses dual 3.5-inch AMOLED screens, which offer better viewing angles and displays in 3K ( 2880x1600). These high-resolution screens reduce the screen-door effect you get in almost all VR and Mixed Reality headsets.
This headset uses inside-out tracking, which means you don't have to worry about setting up any external tracking equipment like sensors. Comfort-wise, the headset is a significant improvement from the original Odyssey and sits well on your head for hours of VR-ing some our faves like Super Hot or Keep Talking and No One Explodes.
At $230, you have a realistic entry point to VR gaming, whose main barrier for most people is cost. This price also makes it the cheapest out of the best VR headsets out there.
