Some of the big box retailers have already published their Black Friday deals, but there are still a few to go leading up to the November 23rd sale. But before Black Friday and Cyber Monday even begin, you can get an awesome deal on a new Windows VR headset, including controllers.

Walmart’s pre-Black Friday sale has discounted the Lenovo Explorer VR headset and controller bundle by $220, bringing the entire bundle to only $180.

If you’ve already picked up a pair of controllers, or know where you can get your hands on some cheap, the headset alone is going for $140.

Both items benefit from free shipping, and also free pickup from participating Walmart stores.

Lenovo Explorer is one of Windows “Mixed Reality” VR headsets, which packs on-board positional tracking thanks to the headset’s optical sensors. That means you don’t have to set up anything on walls to give you the room-scale experience like Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.

It does however require an adept PC to run though. You can check out our guide here to see if your computer is up to snuff to run the same graphics-demanding games that Rift and Vive can.

Like all Windows VR headsets, you can access hundreds of VR games through Steam including SUPERHOT VR, Beat Saber, Rec Roomand much more.
