HTC Vive Receives A Permanent $200 Price Cut – Premium VR Experience

Arguably one of the most impressive VR headsets on the market would be the HTC Vive, and just so – also one of the most expensive. After being available for purchase for over a year, the premium VR experience receives a permanent price cut to make it a little easier on wallets everywhere.

When the HTC Vive first hit the market, it retailed for $799, way ahead of its immediate competition with the PlayStation VR and the Oculus. With the price reduction, the Vive now holds a $599 price tag making it a little more accessible for the general public.

With the exception of a few very limited time only specials, the HTC Vive maintained its premium pricing. Included in the unit is the VR headset itself, two motion controllers, and two base stations to allow for easier tracking. For those interested in purchasing one for themselves, HTC is also including digital codes for Everest VR, Tilt Brush, and Richie’s Plank Experience.

The world of VR is an incredibly progressive market growing in popularity and availabilty. It’s not just for gaming either. VR tech has become more and more common for military, education, and even medical purposes. What do you think about the HTC Vive and the world of VR?
