HTC Vive International Pricing Confirmed, New Pack-In App Revealed

Preorders open tomorrow.

Comments

In a blog post today, HTC confirmed pricing for its upcoming HTC Vive virtual reality headset and reiterated that preorders will open tomorrow, February 29, starting at 7 AM PST / 10 AM EST. Additionally, HTC announced that in addition to two games--Job Simulator and Fantastic Contraption--all preorder units will also come with Google's Tilt Brush app. Check out a video below.

The Vive Consumer Edition comes with the headset, two wireless controllers, two "base stations," a link box (to connect to your PC), and a pair of Vive earbuds.

The big difference between the $800 Vive, which is produced in partnership with Valve, and the $600 Rift, is that Vive's Consumer Edition comes with controllers, while Rift's base package does not (it instead comes with a remote control and an Xbox One controller). Rift's Touch controllers go on sale later this year.

"It's more compelling than buying things piecemeal," HTC VR executive Dan O'Brien said about Vive's offering.

GameSpot tried HTC Vive and reported that the headset demonstrates the future of virtual reality better than any other device. Sony's PlayStation 4 virtual reality device PlayStation VR also releases this year, but the company has yet to announce pricing or other specific launch details for it.
