After announcing its Viveport Infinity Black Friday deal a couple of weeks ago, HTC Vive has now detailed what customers will be able to save this week on hardware. There will be a range of discounts available including money off the new Vive Cosmos and the Vive Wireless Adapter.
Usually, when a new product launches close to Black Friday there’s very little chance of it appearing in the sale – especially if sales are going well. The Vive Cosmos didn’t have a good start when the launch happened in October, with reviewers reporting a number of issues. HTC Vive has been very vocal about solving these, releasing a slew of updates over the past few weeks. Even so, that hasn’t stopped the company from slashing £100 GBP off the regular price, dropping the price down to £599 ($599 USD).
If you’re looking for even bigger savings then the HTC Vive Pro offers the best. There are four deals available saving between £200 – £350. The Vive Pro Full Kit has £200 off, reducing the price to £1,099, while the Vive Pro Starter Kit has an even tastier £300 off, coming in at £819. The difference between the two comes down to hardware generation. The headset remains the same but the Vive Pro Full Kit features SteamVR 2.0 base stations and next-gen controllers.
If you’re just looking to upgrade your original HTC Vive then the Vive Pro headset on its own has a £200 saving, dropping the cost from £799 to £599. And for those looking for wireless freedom, the Vive Wireless Adapter and attachment kit for either Vive Cosmos or Vive Pro are £50 off, retailing for £303 and £314 respectively.
These deals are available in both Europe and North America on Vive.com, beginning on Thursday 28th November 28 until Monday 2nd December. One deal that’s only available in the US is the discounting of the Certified Pre-Owned Vive Systems at $349.
Additionally, all HTC Vive’s Black Friday deals come with 12 months of Viveport Infinity free so you can play hundreds of VR titles across all genres. VRFocus will continue its coverage of the latest Black Friday deals for VR, as more are sure to be announced later this week.
