Black Friday Deals; Chimp In VR
Both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift will be offered with $100 discounts on Black Friday. The Vive deal cuts the $800 up front cost of the system to $700 and should be available wherever Vive is sold. It should be available on Cyber Monday as well. The Oculus deal offers $100 in Oculus Store credit.
Also keep an eye out for software discounts and sales on computer equipment. Sony told UploadVR it had planned no Thanksgiving weekend deals for PlayStation VR, but is running a sale on games including Star Wars Battlefront, for which a VR DLC will arrive on December 6th.
A chimp named Shugriva can be seen trying out the HTC Vive, with a secondary video showing him getting the concept of the Vive controllers. He apparently has a preference for the Disney Movies VR app.
