This is the best thing that could happen in the VR market as now one can get an HTC Vive for only $599 which is a permanent $200 reduction. This is probably one of the most awaited news since most of the VR enthusiasts wanted a price cut in the HTC Vive especially after Oculus Rift was being offered for such a low price.
Since a really long time, there was a lot of debate on the fact that the price on the HTC Vive has to be reduced and even though it might seem on its way, it took a really long time for the developers of the Vive to actually announce this news. This was more or less expected after the cut in the price of the Oculus Rift and honestly, this is definitely the best price one could buy the Vive for.
If Vive was released at this price point, I think everyone would have gone for it back then including me, I too waited for a while just because it was a little expensive. If you look at it now the price point of Vive is that of the Oculus Rift when it was released but the only reason I think this price point for Vive is perfect now is that Vive definitely has more to offer.
This year Vive has seen several new developments and a few of them include, making the Vive VR headset wireless, the audio strap, and the eye tracker. It is apparently one of the most promising headsets and with all the news going on around Oculus Rift, the slash in the price point gives users another reason to actually invest in the HTC Vive.
So, the new price works effectively from today and if you still haven’t got your hands on the HTC Vive then check out this VR headset right now because this is the best price you can get it for!
The package includes the VR headset, controllers and one-month free subscription to Viveport which includes a lot of apps.
Are you happy with the slash in the price?
