HTC permanently slashes Vive price to $599, down $200

HTC Vive sees a MASSIVE price drop in the UAE

As far as VR headsets go, the HTC Vive is quite a good option, and now a new price reduction has been announced, meaning it has lost $200 United States dollars from its $799 price tag. The cost of the system has been brought down to $599.

The HTC Vive is following Oculus' cue of making VR more affordable.

Back to the HTC offer, and the $200 cheaper Vive will include extra value with a free Viveport Subscription trial, where consumers can choose up to 5 titles per month to experience.

We have previously heard that following launch, the HTC Vive took a sizeable lead in the market over the Oculus Rift.

Sure, you're still going to need pretty beefy desktop PC or laptop to run it, but the substantial drop in price means that those who have been waiting for the right moment to get into VR can now pounce.

The HTC Vive is often considered to be the best of the three main gaming headsets from a technical standpoint.

If you think HTC's pricing adjustment might be a reaction to the price changes in the Oculus camp, you are wrong, according to Dan O'Brien, General Manager for HTC Vive in the Americas. The company has introduced an integrated audio head strap and has been working with partners to bring technologies like eye-tracking and wireless-streaming to the headset through add-ons. We don't want users to feel like they're always having to be [up-sold] into new hardware.

"Since launching past year, we have been rapidly growing our ecosystem and expanding our retail footprint across Europe, to continue to reach new audiences with Vive", said HTC Vive's general manager for Europe, Paul Brown.
