HTC Vive was just released this 5 April 2016 and it is one of the hottest VR headsets in the tech market right now.
This sweet VR device which is perfect for gaming is originally worth $800. But this device is now on sale and is now worth $700. You can even buy 2 or 3 more VR games with the $100 savings. Additionally, it is not very common for HTC to put the HTC Vive on sale, so grab this opportunity to get yourself a year-end treat.
To encourage you more, the Vive has gotten positive feedback throughout the year. According to a Tech Radar review, the HTC Vive is in fact “so far ahead of what much of the competition is offering that it can be difficult to describe the experience of using it to someone who hasn’t yet tried VR themselves.”
The HTC Vive comes with the headset itself, two SteamVR wireless controllers, headphones, and two base stations which help track your movement and allow for room-scale VR. The VR device also comes with free copies of Zombie Training Simulator and The Gallery – Episode 1: Call of the Starseed so you can play immediately and get the experience of the Vive headset right away!
