HTC Vive Celebrates Amazon Prime Day With $100 In Bonus Gift Cards

Grab yourself a Vive Pro HMD and then snatch up some quality content.


Amazon Prime Day 2018 is underway and the deals and the best deals are being highlighted at a rapid pace. Amazon's website isn't the only place where gamers can get Prime deals, though, as HTC Vive has decided to join in with the festivities. Starting today and lasting until 8:59 PM PT, Amazon Prime members who purchase a Vive Pro HMD during Prime Day 2018 will receive a bonus $50 Amazon gift card along with a $50 Viveport card.

If you've yet to check out our hands-on impressions with the HTC Vive Pro, the HMD is a noticeable improvement for VR experiences. It's a boost for the Vive and for VR in general, improving the guts of the HMD as well as the ergonomics. Comfort plays a big part in the immersion of virtual reality and improving both of those points takes the immersion to the next level.

Moss, the charming critically acclaimed VR adventure, and the two episodes of The Gallery are highlighted on the Vive blog as some of the best ways to spend the bonus gift cards and we totally back those suggestions. You could also use both to grab a Vive Tracker and enhance the immersive VR experience by attaching it to real-world objects. Stay tuned to Shacknews for more Amazon Prime Day 2018 deals, which will be shifting and changing throughout the next few days.
