Starting today, HTC is aiming to make VR more accessible by dropping the price of their flagship HTC Vive VR headset by $200 to $599.
“Our goal at Vive has always been to offer the best and most advanced VR system and drive mass market adoption for VR across the globe,” said Cher Wang, Chairwoman, HTC. “We’re continuing to deliver on that commitment with this new price for Vive, making VR more accessible to a broader audience and driving the entire VR industry forward. Vive’s game-changing technology, best-in-class content and unmatched global partners are fulfilling the promise of VR like never before. With highly anticipated titles, and the upcoming launch of Vive Tracker, there has never been a better time to embrace Vive, and enjoy the most immersive VR experience available.”
When you purchase Vive, you will receive Google’s Tilt Brush, EverestVR, and Richie’s Plank Experience. You can sign up for a free month trial of Viveport, where consumers can choose up to 5 titles per month.
Even with the price drop, the HTC Vive is still $200 more expensive than the current offer from Oculus where their special is selling the Rift and Touch hand controllers for $399.
Now is a great time to jump onto the VR train, all aboard folks!
