In the world of virtual reality, the competition is really heating up as more and more details on the different headsets are released. The latest to dole out some more information is the HTC Vive. That headset will cost $799 and pre-orders will begin on February 29.
The price tag is about $200 more than the Oculus Rift, one of the Vive’s major competitors. But the Vive won’t come by itself. Two handheld controllers, two base stations, and two games will be included in the bundle.
“From the beginning, Vive has been at the forefront of virtual reality, with HTC pioneering several ground breaking technologies,” said Cher Wang, chairwoman and CEO, HTC in a post on the official website. “Since announcing Vive this time last year, we have worked tirelessly with Valve to deliver the best VR experience on the market, winning multiple awards and receiving critical acclaim from media, consumers and the industry.
