HTC Vive VR headset gets a $200 price cut to take on Oculus Rift

By : |August 22, 2017 0

HTC has slashed the price of its Vive VR headset from $799 to $599 as the Taiwanese tech giant seeks to compete with aggressive price cuts from Facebook-owned Oculus and their Rift headset.

“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,” Cher Wang, Chairwoman, HTC, said in a statement. “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.”

Back in July, Oculus VR announced it was cutting the price of the Oculus Rift plus Touch bundle to just $399 for a limited time. Once the sale ends, the Rift will retail for $499, notably still $100 cheaper than the Vive’s updated pricing.

The Vive headset comes with two motion controllers and two sensors that deliver “room-scale” VR, allowing you to walk around and explore virtual worlds within a relatively small space in your home. “All Vive purchases come with a free trial to Viveport Subscription, where consumers can choose up to 5 titles per month to experience, and copies of many of the most popular pieces of VR content today, including Google’s Tilt Brush, Everest VR, and Richie’s Plank Experience,” HTC said in a news release.
