According to The Telegraph, you will be able to preorder the HTC Vive VR headset on February 29–yep, it’s a leap year. No price has yet been announced.
Last week at CES in Las Vegas, the latest development edition of the Vive, called the Vive Pre, made its debut and impressed reviewers with its brand-new front-facing camera. The headset’s camera makes it possible for the headset to warn you when you’re about to walk into furniture or other obstacles.
The HTC Vive was announced back in March 2015, and in December HTC announced that they were planning to ship units in April.
Preorders for the Oculus Rift opened last week. That headset is priced at $599 and will ship in late March.
