If there's one thing that will boost your sales on an expensive product, it's monthly payments that make it more affordable for those who don't want to spend a large sum of money at once. UK retailer Game is offering the HTC Vive on monthly payments, requiring a 10% deposit and two years of some pretty affordable payments.
Once the 10% deposit of £75.90 ($100 USD or $131 AUD) is paid, there are 24 monthly payments of £32.79 ($43 USD or $57 AUD) - with a 14.9% fixed interest rate per annum. Not a bad deal, but it gets better when you consider Game is letting you trade in old games and consoles to pay off the HTC Vive faster. Monthly payments would make HTC Vive sales increase considerably, especially for those who have the money to spend on a fast enough PC to play it - now you can just pay a small amount per month and enjoy the best VR experience available, for now at least.
