Tomorrow will see HTC Vive celebrate its first anniversary since its consumer launch. Earlier this week HTC announced several promotions including a $100 USD/£100 GBP discount on new headset purchases. But due to the time difference with Taiwan, those offers are now available a day early.
Daniel O’Brien, GM of HTC Vive at HTC announced on Twitter: “Surprise! It’s 4/5 in Taiwan which means the Vive Anniversary Officially started. $100 Off Vive already available in US and Europe!”
So that means both US and European customers thinking about purchasing a HTC Vive now have an extra day to play with.
Unfortunately, for those who already own the head-mounted display (HMD) and are looking to redeeming a free copy of Vive Studio’s action game Arcade Saga, or signing up to the Viveport subscription they’ll still have to wait until tomorrow for those to become available. Pre-registrations are still available through Viveport.com for those keen on getting access to the service when it goes live.
Ever since HTC Vive’s launch, the company has been actively pushing VR initiatives to support developers and the industry, from Viveport and Viveport M, to Vive X, Vive Studios, Global Virtual Reality Association and Viveport Arcade.
