After alot of research and seeing the pros and cons of the HTC Vive
they say that you have to wait till all games are released but its been 2 years now
So was wondering will there be any sale on amazon or a new version of oculus(like pro) coming out
Because i got a deal for 550$ for the HTC Vive (not pro ofcourse)
So,I would like to hear your personal opinion and thoughts on the vive.
wont be getting the rift because its like 600$ for some reason??
sorry for my bad english

You must be buying overseas. They reduced the price in the US, and the Rift is pretty cheap compared to 2 years ago.
That stated.. the next SALE days will likely be around Christmas. Ya might save an extra $50 -- $100 if you are lucky.
There is no news of the next Rift version. (that I have heard.)

Next update for HTC will be controllers and likely a 2.0 Tracker. That stated, the next Non-Pro version of the HTC Vive is a bit away. I suspect the next one will have integration of wireless and improved screen resolution.

Now.. When should you buy?
Honestly.. I think you should have bought 2 years ago at the full price. Some of the best parts of VR was the journey and exploration of the new software / tech that was being released. Watching the industry grow and being there in the moment.

Should you buy now?
Ya can't wait for the future to arrive. :)

Yes, I am buying overseas which explains the high shipping fee for the oculus

but I buy from a local online store website (souq.com)(An amazon company)
And I heard that the wireless gadget will work on this version of vive..i think
and you are in fact right..i cant wait for the future to arrive..thats why i bought it with next day delivery
CUZ I CANT WAIT MAN! the only VR thing I tried is the thing where you slide in your phone and use it

hopefully this is a better experience...
