HTC announces the price for the Vive Pro Head Mounted Display

by on March 19, 2018

HTC’s Vive Pro headsets start shipping on April 5, and with premium quality VR comes a premium quality price tag.

A high price should be the least of your expectations considering the new device comes with dual OLED displays, giving users a combined resolution of 2880 x 1600, which is an increase of over 75% on the original HTC Vive. Additionally the Pro set also has built in headphones that have a built in amplifier and it’ll also come with a six month subscription to Viveport. Pre-orders are live now through Vive.com, Scan.co.uk, GAME and Overclockers for £799.

Anybody who feels that price is a bit too far out of their reach will be pleased to hear that the regular Vive set is getting a permanent price reduction to £499, and that will come with a two month Viveport sub. Coincidentally, Viveport subscriptions are going up from £6.99 to £8.99 on March 22, but anyone who signs up before then will get the reduced price for the full year.
