Not sure if mentioned but there's a couple reddit threads that track price changes:

Rift Store
Go Store

"Along Together" is on sale all platforms today (PSVR included). Had my eye on it, looks like a neat platformer.

Thanks, this one slipped under my radar, looks good.

I've been looking for something to spend my $15 Viveport credit on before the Holiday Sale ends.
Think I'll grab this & Apex Construct.

The Oculus Winter Sale ends on Jan 2nd @ 11:59pm (one minute before midnight).

I'm holding out for Rockband VR to possibly go on a Daily Deal by then.
I'd buy it now for $22.99, but you know...Murphy's Law and all that. Winking Face

I was going to ping you on that but said you are probably waiting for a daily deal.
Doesn't oculus have a 14 days / 2 hours play refund policy ? not sure it's automated though, so chances are you would miss the a daily deal if you are waiting for them manually process the refund.

EXACTLY my thinking, that's why I'm holding out until the last day.
Not the last minute though, just in case.
Will buy it by Jan 2nd morning if it doesn't go on sale.

I have 2 white/black Mad Catz RB4 Strats still sitting here in their boxes from the Amazon Warehouse for ~$30 each.
One as a spare (Mad Catz is gone and these are no longer being manufactured).

Now....where'd that wig of mine get to?????

Related, but unrelated..
I am trying to buy an item from the Oculus store for my Go (specifically, the grand essentials pack.. https://www.oculus.com/experiences/go/459599981236009/.. dunno if this is actually a good deal or not.. but anyway..)

It's listed at $45.99CAD. But when I try to checkout, the price jumps to $39.99USD!
Has anyone experienced something like this?!

Oculus support is claiming this is because I’m paying with American Express.. which is utter BS.
Oh, and I can always pay in USD they say..
Gee, thanks.. umm.. NO!

The issue is.. unresolved.

Create a Canadian paypal (with whichever card you want) and link it instead.

I remember having the same issue, it might’ve been Amex as well. Try deleting all your cards and adding a Visa or MC then restart the app.

I would rather not have paypal involved.
Say there’s a dispute of a charge.. with whom would I deal with? I’d rather be dealing with Amex.
Likewise, if I were to get a refund, would that go through to my cc or would PayPal hang onto it in my account?

It’s an unnecessary step that I shouldn’t have to take.

I’ll see what Amex has to say about this if Oculus doesn’t come back with something to my satisfaction..

I see your point, though having CC behind paypal is actually better for disputes, because you can still go and charge back with Amex if paypal failed to resolved the issue (or you can skip paypal and go with Amex from the get go).
It's same with refunds, paypal don't withhold funds as long as account is in a good standing, but even if it's not you can still charge back with Amex (at the end of the day, to Amex paypal is just a merchant)
