HTC Vive Cosmos Elite VR Headset: was $899.99 now $649 @ Amazon
Now $250 off, HTC's pricey VR headset is finally more affordable than ever. PC VR gamers can expect a sharp, smooth display thanks to the LCD panels with 2880 x 1700 combined Pixel resolution, powerful sound, and a variety of games and apps. Specs-wise, it has six tracking cameras, a 90Hz refresh rate, and a wide 110-degree field of view.
While the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset is the best VR headset due to its low price point and brilliant performance, it struggles to compete with the PC-powered HTC Vive Cosmos Elite VR headset. Like the HTC Vive Cosmos, one of the Elite's biggest flaws is the expensive price tag. Now, thanks to this Black Friday offer, it isn't as much of a pitfall anymore.
Paired with one of the best VR-ready gaming laptops, the Cosmos Elite offers a high-end VR experience that will have gamers become fully immersed in big hitters such as Half-Life: Alyx. Featuring all-new LCD panels with 2880 x 1700 combined pixel resolution and Lighthouse tracking technology with a base station 1.0 that provides up to 160 square feet of play space.
Plus, the Cosmos Elite comes with Viveport offering access to HTC's personal game library store and a paid monthly service called Viveport Infinity that'll give you access to hundreds of VR games as well as exclusive offers and discounts. To play the very best VR games, the HTC Vive Cosmos Elite has you covered.
