If you're on the hunt for good gaming discounts in the Prime Day deals, you might've discovered that the savings are only moderately exciting. Sure, there's a few discounts on Ubisoft games, and some of the Nintendo Switch bundles are worth a look – but considering Amazon US dropped the price of PS5 games by $20, the UK hasn't had anything nearly as cool.

It's not a total disaster. If you're on the hunt for an Oculus Quest 2 VR headset, Amazon has the 64GB model at £279, which is £20 off the retail price. That's not an enormous discount, but it matches the few previous price drops we've seen on the Quest 2 on Amazon UK (it's technically 99p less). Considering this headset was selling out late last year, it's nice to see a few pounds sliced off the price.

The all-in-one VR headset from Oculus takes a rare discount from Amazon for Prime Day. This deal isn't a massive discount, but it matches the all-time low we've seen on the Quest 2 at Amazon, and represents a great way into VR for the majority of people. 

This is a great starting point for anyone who's interested in VR – if you're unfamiliar, you don't need any additional hardware to get set up. You can just start loading it up with games from the Oculus Store out of the box.
