Something for the Weekend: A Veritable VR Pick ‘n’ Mix

Money has one job, to be spent. So spend it wisely.

Usually on Something for the Weekend, VRFocus tends to pick a selection of discounts from a single store, alternating between them on a weekly basis where possible. As you should be very well aware of by now, this week is somewhat different due to the massive amount of deals on offer thanks to Black Friday. Originally confined to one day, Black Friday has expanded to include the entirety of this weekend and most of the week before it. And VRFocus has covered many, many, many offers relating to VR, so for today decided to do a roundup of the best videogames currently on sale.

You’ll find it on the PlayStation Store for half price, retailing for £24.99 GBP rather than £50.
