While it’s almost time to sit down with family and friends for the Christmas holidays, eating and drinking too much and generally being merry, this will be the first festive season where virtual reality (VR) party games may just feature for the first time. Black Friday encouraged this with HTC and Oculus both offering deals to tempt consumers into VR. Naturally as one of the biggest online retailers in the world Amazon also had several offerings, and for US customers interested in an Oculus Rift there’s still one available.
Amazon.com is currently offering an Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) with a $100 USD Amazon Gift Card. While this may not be a direct incentive for further VR related purchases, for those that use the retailer often it’s certainly a good deal. The gift card promotion is being run separately from Amazon’s other Rift offer which includes CCP Games’ cross-platform multiplayer EVE: Valkyrie. The gift card offer doesn’t currently state an expiry date, but the latter deal with EVE: Valkyrie ends on 31st December, 2016.
Both Oculus and HTC Vive offered $100 deals last month, with Oculus giving store credit to purchase VR experiences while HTC Vive simply knocked that price off the headset for a limited time.
