Virtual Reality, a recent phenomenon that has attracted the attention of many looking for a quick (or long) escape, has become increasingly popular creating more competition among high-end VR System manufacturers.
HTC, the company that brought us the very popular and highly-rated Vive VR headset has just lowered their price to $599, which is $200 less than the steep $800 price tag it had before. Because of this, Amazon is now showing a 1-2 month backorder for the device. Although, one can conclude that the price cut came as a result of their competitor: Oculus, who introduced a price-cut on their Oculus Rift + Touch System not too long ago as well.

Reviewers on Amazon rave about the amazing experiences they’re able to garner from the wearable device and with the new sale price going into effect, it becomes a bit more enticing to take advantage of.
The Vive System will get you the headset, wireless controllers and base stations, which is essentially everything you need to immerse yourself into a new world. A free trial for Viveport Subscription is also (still) included, and it allows the customer to get copies of Everest VR and Richie’s Plank Experience for free.

Virtual reality headsets will very much provide a gateway into a new world that will allow one to escape everyday life while still being in the comfort of his or her own home. Because of this, most will say it is completely worth it to invest in such a device… and we would have to agree!
