HTC Vive VR is another virtual reality headset after Oculus Rift that is getting all the limelight. The best part about this headset is that its front-fitted camera makes it easier to roam around wearing the gadget. People who are looking forward to invest into a VR headset have been waiting for HTC Vive VR price, pre-orders and shipping details to come out so they can make a better purchase decision.
The HTC Vive VR pre-orders begin February 29, but the company has decided to ship the product only in April. Vive’s competitor Oculus Rift will start shipping on March 28. As for the HTC Vive VR price, the cost of this headset was said to be $1500. Right now, these are considered rumors. Confirming that this is just a rumor, Geeky Gadgets wrote in its post, “The rumored $1,500 price for the new HTC VR headset is just a rumor at the moment, it is apparently based on the cost of the technology used in the device. We have no idea if this rumored price for the HTC VR headset is correct, I guess we will find out next month when the pre-orders start.”
HTC has only confirmed the pre-order date. The shipping date is set in April, but no exact date has been given by the company.
