Microsoft Stores have the HTC Vive on sale now thru Sunday for $499. This is an unlisted special. Spoke on the phone with the store to see if it was available where I am, and they said that it's only good for the corporate locations in Seattle Washington. Try your luck if it's where you are though?

Found from reddit. Some users there posted it worked for them. https://www.reddit.com/r/Vive/com...ows_store/

The Vive pro is coming out and this will become obsolete. As a vive owner I highly recommend the wait.

I don't believe so. Just call your store and check if it's available where you are.

There will ALWAYS be something newer, faster, better "coming out". If you spend your life waiting for the next thing to come out, you'll miss a lot of experience and a lot of fun.

It sounds like the vive pro is going to be aimed at a different market [forbes.com], and so this probably won't be obsolete for a while. Nor will the price be dropping significantly.

Nonsense. Just because BMW comes out with a 5 series doesn't make a 3 series obsolete.

As for this deal. Seems the Seattle stores messed up and this was supposed to be a bundle discount. They forgot about the bundle part.

Just got a bundle of a htc vive with the racket and vive tracker for $598 free shipping from the Microsoft store.

Will be selling the racket and vive tracker and getting the deluxe audio strap instead.
