This Black Friday HTC is focusing on pushing its high-end Vive Pro headset and will be offering discounts on the ‘full kit’ and the ‘headset only’ option. The company is also offering big discounts on its Viveport Subscription service, which will include a free copy of Fallout 4 VR, $10 in free credit, and more.
Come Black Friday, HTC is offering a $200 discount on the Vive Pro Full Kit, which includes the Vive Pro headset, SteamVR Tracking 2.0 base stations, and 2.0 controllers. The Full Kit normally runs $1,400, and the $200 (14.3%) discount drops it down to $1,200.
As the Vive Pro headset is backwards compatible with 1.0 base stations, existing Vive owners who just want to upgrade their headset without buying new base stations or controllers can opt for the ‘HMD only’ option which HTC is discounting by $100 (12.5%), from $800 to $700 during the Black Friday deal.
Both Vive Pro deals will be available directly from the official Vive site starting on Black Friday (November 23rd) until Monday November 26th. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem that the company has any plans to officially discount the original Vive headset, but it’s possible other deals will crop up elsewhere.
HTC is also slinging deals around its Viveport Subscription service, which allows users to play five titles from the service per month, and rotate different games monthly. The company recently opened the service to support Oculus Rift titles too.
Starting Tuesday November 20th until Tuesday November 27th, Viveport Subscription subscribers (even those on the free trial) can get SUPERHOT VR, Accounting+ and The Wizards for $1 each, and all will also get a $10 Viveport credit.
New users will also be able to save 25% on a 6 month plan for Viveport Subscription, and 50% on a 12 month plan, and anyone signing up for any new plan will get a free copy of Fallout 4 VR.
If all that wasn’t enough, Viveport will also be running a sale over the course of the week, offering discounts on some 100 titles. And anybody using Viveport (even if you don’t have Viveport Subscription) will be able to download Arcade Saga for free from November 22nd at 4PM PT to November 23rd at 11:59PM PT.
