HTC Vive Pro on sale - Pricing, details

HTC Vive Pro on sale - Pricing, details

As we mentioned during the VIVE Pro announcement, this first upgrade kit is meant for existing VIVE users who will be reusing their original controllers and lighthouse trackers to get everything up and running. However, if you order a Vive Pro by 3 June, you'll get six free months of HTC's Viveport subscription service.

"The redesigned face cushion and nose pad block even more light, which deepens your sense of presence while using VIVE Pro", a description of the Vive Pro says on the HTC Vive site.

The Vive Pro will also be able to be compatible with multiple base stations that allows you to expand the play boundary.

"Our goal has always been to offer the most premium VR platform available and to drive adoption for VR", said Vive U.S. general manager, Daniel O'Brien, speaking about the pricing changes. "There has never been a better time for VR fans to unleash their imagination with the most complete VR platform available". The Vive Pro is an updated version of the original Vive, which has itself seen a price drop, down to £500.

Pre-ording the HTC Vive Pro comes with an incentive as well.

To date, the VR world has been split between expensive and complex PC-based headsets, like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, and untethered phone-based VR headsets.

Announced at CES this year, the Vive Pro has two OLED displays with a combined resolution of 2800 x 1600, a considerable increase over its predecessor's 2100 x 1200. In addition to upgraded visuals, it also has high-performance headphones with a built-in amplifier and noise cancellation. Like other VR development platforms, VIVE makes use of Unity and the Unreal Engine and a proprietary SDK for building apps. It is also created to be more comfortable and convenient, featuring built-in headphones, a redesigned face cushion and nose pad that blocks more light, and a dial to adjust the headstrap in place of a Velcro fastening.
