Getting into the world of VR gaming can be difficult and expensive. What’s the best option? Many will agree that the HTC Vive is the headset you’re looking for if you want a full, smooth experience, but the entire set can be the most expensive of all. This Prime Day, however, gives us a great deal on the Vive Pro’s starter pack, which is everything you need to get going in the world of VR.
Ready to jump in? The HTC Vive Pro Starter Kit is $899.99 this Prime Day. You may think that’s still absurdly expensive, but not only do you get the best VR headset on the market, but you get everything you need to get your setup up and running. You get the headset, two SteamVR Base Stations, and two controllers, so you set it all up and just start playing! This bundle also comes with six months of Viveport Infinity, a subscription service that gives you access to a ton of games.
Of course, to run VR, you have to at least have a working PC. If your computer isn’t doing too hot, there’s a bunch of deals to take advantage of to upgrade. The iBUYPOWER Elite Gaming PC Desktop is $899.99 and even comes with a keyboard and mouse, which isn’t common for a computer tower. If you need a proper monitor, this Acer KG241Q Pbiip 23.6″ Full HD Monitor for $149.99 will get the job done.
If you’re looking for the lowest priced VR experience, you can grab the Oculus Go Standalone Virtual Reality Headset for $249.00 (or $209.00 if you’re a Prime member). The Oculus Go doesn’t need a PC to work, so it’s a viable option for VR on a budget.
