You Can Order the HTC Vive Pro Headset Today for $799

Today HTC revealed that the Vive Pro will cost $799. You can preorder it today and expect to get it by April 5.


HTC announced the Vive Pro earlier this year. It’s an upgraded version of its Vive virtual reality headset, featuring higher-res displays (1400 x 1600 pixels versus the current Vive’s 1080 x 1200 pixels) and it can use the existing Vive’s system (same controllers, same tracking beacons). Essentially you’re just swapping headsets to get the pixel upgrade, which is a little cheaper than buying the whole kit and caboodle. And today HTC finally revealed the Vive Pro’s pricing and availability info. You can preorder it today for $799 and you can expect to get it by April 5.

HTC also dropped the price of its original Vive bundle by $100 — it now costs $499 — so if you’ve been thinking about going in on virtual reality, consider this an extra incentive. And here’s another thing to think on: if you order an HTC Vive Pro headset before June 3, you’ll get a free six-month trial to Viveport, HTC’s subscription service.
