Not only smartphones, Microsoft has given a price cut to HTC's Steam-powered Vive VR headset as well. The device, which usually carries a price tag of $799, is currently listed on Microsoft's online US store for $699.
In addition to the price cut, the company is offering a $100 Microsoft Store gift code for free with the headset. And there's even more. A couple of games - The Gallery – Episode 1: Call of the Starseed and Zombie Training Simulator - are included for free as well.
"Get 3 free games ($100 value) when you buy a GeForce GTX graphics card, desktop, or laptop with the HTC VIVE," the listing further reveals. A quick look at HTC's own website reveals that the $100 discount is available there as well. For more information, head to the Source links below.
