 HTC VIVE / STEAM VR NEWS

HTC Vive reduces its price to £599 indefinitely

Still pricey, but better

Product: HTC Vive | Manufacturer: 
 
Originally nearer to £800/$800 the HTC Vive was a serious commitment for any VR gamer. However, it was announced today HTC made the decision to give the headset pack a £200 cut.



Virtual Reality has a number of different uses, from entertainment to education, but unfortunately the original price point of the top-brand headsets is what stopped a lot of eager folks in their tracks. After all, even with the Vive or Oculus you've still got to have a computer advanced enough to support the input - that means top processors, graphics cards, and a lot of RAM. 

It looks like HTC has started to twig that making their product more accessible means they'll have to make some cuts, and dropping the price to £599 is a decent start. Bear in mind that that includes the two sensors, two motion controllers, and the headset.

Plus, you'll get a one-month free trial to Viveport: a subscription-based service where you'll be able to choose five titles per month to experience.

If you're tempted and have a spare £600/$600 just laying about, take a look at the Vive here
