Black Friday always follows on from the Thanksgiving celebrations in the USA (which is the fourth Thursday of the month), so this year, it falls on November 26.
However, some retailers start making offers even before Black Friday itself. It's definitely worth planning your purchase and keeping an eye out for bargains in the coming days.
When is Cyber Monday 2021?
The online-focused continuation of the Black Friday sales is on the following Monday – so in 2021, that's November 29.
Retailers often make exclusive digital offers, or add final discounts on Cyber Monday, so it's definitely worth checking out – and it's your last chance to find a fantastic deal.

What was in the Oculus Quest 2 Black Friday sale last year?
There weren't many Black Friday Oculus Quest 2 deals on the headset itself in 2020 – mainly because it was still a new release, and also due to low stocks.
However, there were offers on numerous Oculus Quest games last year, including bundles like:
- The Must-Haves Pack for £69.99 – including Onward, Job Simulator, In Death: Unchained, Tetris® Effect, Space Pirate Trainer, and I Expect You To Die
- Premium Pack for £127.27 – including SUPERHOT VR, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted, Vacation Simulator, Arizona Sunshine, The Room VR: A Dark Matter, Red Matter, Espire 1: VR Operative, Moss, Gun Club VR, and Space Pirate Trainer
- Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series Pack for £14.99 – including all three episodes of the critically acclaimed experience
- Fitness Pack for £44.99 – including FitXR, Creed: Rise to Glory, and Sports Scramble
Your first port of call for deals on the games and headsets should be the Oculus site itself – buy here.

Do you need a PC for Oculus Quest 2?
Having a PC isn't crucial if you want to use the Oculus Quest 2 — it is designed as a standalone headset that can operate with nothing but its processing chip.
However, connecting the Oculus to a PC opens you up to a wealth of further content, including an impressive selection of PC titles that are exclusive to Oculus, such as Lone Echo.
How to cast Oculus Quest 2 to the TV
The easiest way to cast the Quest 2 to the TV is from the headset itself:
- Turn your TV and headset on.
- From the main control panel, hit the "share" button.
- Click "Cast", on the far side of the menu.
- Select the device you want to cast to.
You can also cast to the TV from your phone:
- Open the Oculus app and tap "cast", which is in the corner of your screen.
- Allow your phone to search for devices.
- Tap the name of the device you want to cast to, and click "start".
Can you use Oculus Quest 2 with a PS4?
In order to nudge people towards buying its official headset, Sony has not made the PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 compatible with the Oculus Quest 2.
If you want to use a VR headset with your PlayStation 5, your best bet is to buy the official Playstation VR.

How much are Oculus Quest games?
Compared to the prices of games on modern consoles like the PS5 — whose games often cost over £60 — games for the Oculus are fairly reasonably-priced.
For example, Resident Evil 4, which has been roundly praised for its transition into VR, costs £29.99, while cheaper games like the beloved Fruit Ninja can be bought for as little as £10.99.
