    News: HTC Vive Is 0 From Black Friday Through Cyber Monday-dsc_0088-11-1200x947-e1460616409814.jpg

    Since it was first available, the HTC Vive room-scale VR system has been priced at $800. For comparison, the Oculus Rift and its Touch controllers will hit that same price when they start shipping in December. You might even need to add $80 to get a third camera that is said to offer full room-scale tracking support with Rift.

    But starting at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on November 24 and ending at 11:59 p.m. on November 28 wherever Vive is sold, purchasers can receive $100 off their Vive purchase (while supplies last). That means at Microsoft Stores, Amazon.com, Gamestop, Newegg.com, Micro-center, and Vive.com the system should ring in at around $700 plus tax. For the first time, the Vive will also be available at 34 Frys locations, as well as online.

    This puts the price of a Vive far under the Rift with comparable functionality, though it is possible retailers could also have Oculus deals planned as well. Individual HTC Vive retailers might also have additional discounts, deals or bundles beyond this one too.

    HTC will also be holding a sale for software purchased through Viveport, its VR software store. According to HTC, heres how that promotion will work:

    Customers who spend $30 USD equivalent or more between Black Friday and Cyber Monday get $10 USD equivalent back in their wallets. You can also build your library with a $5 bundle deal on three of the most popular VR apps: Soundstage, Arcade Artist, and Lumen.
    A number of individual titles will be discounted on Viveport as well.

    This is likely just the first of many VR deals announced heading into the busiest shopping season of the year. Check back with UploadVR.com this week for more information about sales and discounts.
