Pre-order the HTC Vive Virtual Reality Headset On February 29

Pre-order the HTC Vive Virtual Reality Headset On February 29

Pre-order the HTC Vive virtual reality headset on February 29. However, there’s no price tag on it yet. The company announced that it will be released world-wide during April 2016. This means that it’s going to compete directly with Facebook’s Oculus Rift.

Even though HTC is only known for developing top-notch Android smartphones, it has sunk its teeth in the emerging technology market of virtual reality.

The Taiwan-based company confirmed for The Telegraph yesterday, on Monday, that it’s going to open the doors for Vive pre-orders starting with the 29th of February. The company didn’t disclose any information regarding pricing, but it did say that they will announce a price tag at the end of next month .

Let’s hope it’s not in the same ballpark as Palmer Luckey’s Oculus Rift. In contrast, the Oculus Rift founder first said that their VR headset will cost somewhat around the $350 mark, but last week, the company announced that the Oculus will be priced at $599.

To develop the virtual reality headset, HTC teamed-up with game developer beast Valve. The alliance has seemed to be fruitful as the headset is one of the most awaited devices this year. The VR system allows users to walk around the room and immerse themselves in the virtual medium. The two independent sensors have to be placed around the room in order to track a user’s movements. These sensors will track the headset, as well as the wireless controllers that are held by the users – two in number.

CEO HTC Cher Wang has said that even though smartphones are of an immense importance for the company, driving towards other markets is crucial for developing a natural extension with wearables and VR.

The HTC Vive, rumours have it, will cost more than Facebook’s Oculus Rift, exceeding the $599 price tag, because the device has more features.

Pricing for VR headsets has sparked a huge debate across the world over if they are too expensive for consumers and how will this affect the adoption rate. Besides the pretty hefty price tag that a consumers has to cough up, users need a powerful PC to make use of the headsets. Powerful PCs that will cost somewhat between $500 and $1000.

CEO Cher Wang has announced that companies like Asus and HP will be releasing VR-ready PCs and laptops in the upcoming months. Dell’s Alienware department has already jumped on the bandwagon and they are not offering only VR-capable machines, but also bundles that contain Oculus Rift.

These bundle shave $200 off of the Oculus Rift base price.

Still, nobody was expecting such a huge soar in pricing.
