While it may be too late to ship that shiny new VR headset to your home in time for Christmas, this may be the last chance to grab an HTC Vive at its Black Friday sale price. To sweeten the deal, HTC is also throwing in a $50 Steam voucher to start the new year off right.
The bundle, which is available on the US-facing Vive site, includes an HTC Vive system with all the standard trappings – Vive headset, 2 basestations, 2 controllers, and a few other bits and bobs – but also comes along with a Deluxe Audio Strap for greater comfort, Fallout 4 VR (2017), a $50 Steam Gift Card, and a free trial to Viveport Subscription. At $600 with free shipping, it’s one of the best deals we’ve seen so far. Outside of the special sale price (while supplies last), the total would normally come to $809.
With the Steam Winter Sale going on until January 4th, that $50 could go pretty far too.
Neither UK nor Continental European customers will be so lucky though, as both UK and EU-facing sites advertise the Winter Vive Deal for a decidedly less friendly £600/€700. With purchase of a Vive, you can still nab a £50/50€ Steam voucher, Fallout 4 VR, Tilt Brush, and 1 month free Viveport subscription – but sadly no deluxe audio strap.
We’ll have our eyes peeled for the next price drops in VR hardware, so check back soon.
