No.

a) the RRP is now 759. You also can't by a Mars Bar for 19p any more, but that used to be the RRP, you can trust me on that.

b) the RRP used to be 689. This is cheaper even than that.

Still, doesn't feel a bargain because of the post brexit price hike. Unfortunately prices across IT hardware have all went up because of the Brexit mess.

Does anyone have an idea when will the HTC vive reduce to a way more affordable price or would that be a very long time, thanks? Genuine question

I suspect it will be a long time because it's not just a case of reducing the cost of the current parts, there's still a lot of improvements that need to made first. The resolution of the displays need to be improved (which in turn will need more GPU power), the tracking system is currently clumsy to set up and the bulky 3 in 1 cable is a pain - there's a wireless option coming out which looks good but that's another couple of hundred quid. I'd expect the next version of the Vive to make some of these improvements but keep the cost similar or even possibly slightly higher.
