The HTC Vive is hits the pockets harder than competitors. With a $799 price tag, it’s unsurprising that consumers have been hesitant.
But our cries have not gone unheard. HTC has revealed a new payment plan for North Anerica to help players cope with the steep costs.
“For the first time, Vive is launching a financing program in North America,” stated HTC. “For $66 a month and no-interest financing for 12 months, users can purchase a Vive on Vive.com with zero down. Additional new financing options are available at varying finance terms.”
The Vive will not be seeing a price reduction. And with the pending upgrade peripherals like the Vive Tracker ($99.99), owning a Vive will still be heavy on the wallet.
The payment plan will however satisfy those happy monthly contributors, and make the technology more accessible.
