DEALS: $100 discount on HTC Vive on Black Friday plus other deals!


If you've read the glowing reviews of the HTC Vive (reviewed here) and have just been waiting for a good deal on it, your patience has been been rewarded!  For Black Friday, you can get a $100 discount off the HTC Vive and you won't even have to line up for it (unless you want to)!   Here are the retailers offering this discount, plus 50% discount on select HTC Vive games and apps.



The discount will be available from November 24 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time, through 11:59 p.m. on November 28.  It's available both online and at stores (but for stores, check for availability).  Check for included software before buying, which can vary between retailers (for example, Amazon currently includes Call of the Starseed and Zombie Training Simulator).

In addition to the $100 discount, here are special deals on software on the Viveport store (but please note that I have had difficulty launching Viveport store purchases):
