VIVE Presses Reset on its VR Headset Lineup

The Vive Pro won't be cheap at a hefty £799

HTC Vive Pro is the next premium headset VR fans will want

And with the reveal of the Vive Pro headset price, HTC revealed it will scrape a further £100 off the original headset taking it down to £499, which is pretty reasonable for one of the more premium VR headsets available. Purchase made before June 3 come with six free months of HTC's Viveport subscription service. "By lowering the price of the current Vive, we are making VR more accessible while expanding the potential market for developers". Are many of you looking forward to the launch of the Vive Pro? If you're open to the original Vive, that has dropped down to $500. "Whether you're a VR enthusiast or new to the platform, there's never been a better time to join the most complete VR platform available".

This price drop for the base HTC Vive isn't the first that the headset has experienced with the price being reduced to $599 past year, but this is the lowest price that the headset has been sold without factoring in any discounts or promotions.

Priced at $799, the new headset is a drop-in replacement for the older Vive in VR setups which are already equipped with HTC's lighthouse tracking beacons and controllers.

Also, if you don't own a Vive and want the Vive Pro, you're in an odd situation.

All you really need to do is swap it out with the previous headset. Now at $499 including controllers, Fallout 4 and a 2 month Viveport subscription, it's a more attractive option than before. A price for the bundled version of the HTC Vive Pro has not been announced yet. It brings an increased screen resolution, thanks to two OLED displays that offer 1400 x 1600 pixels per eye, and it offers improved ergonomic changes, including built-in headphones and a head strap you can adjust with a dial.

The Vive Pro boasts a 78% increased pixel count and 37% increased pixel density over the standard HTC Vive, delivering a sharper image via two 1,440 x 1,600 AMOLED panels.

No price is available for buying the Pro in a kit form just yet, so only the headset is available for pre-order.
