    It was a good move on Oculus’ part to get out ahead of the Steam Winter Sale with its own deals; price cuts have just hit Valve’s digital store and there are more discounted VR games than you could ever hope to play.

    There are over 400 VR experiences now discounted on the platform. That’s nearly half of the 1,000 pieces of content we reported were now available on Steam a few weeks ago. It’s not the first sale VR’s been involved in, but it has to be the biggest, especially considering that many more games now support both the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift following the launch of Oculus Touch at the start of the month.

    We have a few suggestions if you’re looking out for the best deals. For starters, there’s a massive 60% off of DiRT Rally [Review: 9/10], Codemasters brilliant racing game, bringing it to $23.99. That’s actually a lot less than it is in the Oculus Home sale, where it’s cut to $39.99. The same goes for Slight Mad Studios’ Project CARS: $24.99 on Oculus Home, $9.89 on Steam. If you’re looking to get a deal this week, definitely make sure you check both Home and Steam first for the best ones.

    You probably already own it on Vive considering it still comes for free with every purchase of the headset, but Tilt Brush has been cut from $29.99 to $20.09, so if you’re a second-hand owner now is the time to grab it.

    Elsewhere there’s 50% off of VR sniping favorite, The Nest, taking the price to $4.99, and popular military sim shooter Onward has 20% off, bringing it to $19.99. Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope just got a co-op update, and it’s had its price cut to $31.99 too. The same is true of the excellent Raw Data, and Space Pirate Trainer is now just $11.24.

    A personal highlight would have to be underrated horror gem A Chair in A Room: Greenwater [Review: 8/10], which is cut to $19.99.

    Well, I know what I’m getting for Christmas: a Steam gift card. That’s my holiday set.

    Yeah I been eyeing Project Car but I am not too much into hardcore car sims. I much more like arcade style.

    Heh. If only I had a way to play those games. I've taken advantage of the Oculus winter sale on the Gear VR, though; finally picked up Smashing the Battle and it's pretty awesome so far.

    Ever since I got my controller charged back up today, it's been the only thing I've done on the headset.

    I very luckily just received my vive before the steam sale started so I had a day of doing the free experiences before purchasing many of the discounted games.

    Well I ended up getting Chronos and Project Cars. I will need more practice in Project Cars (maybe a steering wheel too)
