HTC Vive Pro now available for pre-order, non-Pro model gets a price cut

Peter, 19 March 2018

The Vive Pro VR headset unveiled this year is now available for pre-order at 800/€880/£800. If you pre-order by June 3, your Vive Pro will ship on April 5 and you get a 6-month subscription to Viveport, where you can play up to 5 titles a month (out of a library of 400+).

The “Pro” model has 78% higher resolution thanks to its new OLED panels (combined resolution is 2,880 x 1,600px). The headset has redesigned straps for increased comfort and headphones with built-in amps. The Pro also has two cameras for AR applications.

If the Pro is too pricey for you, you can grab the regular Vive headset – HTC officially cut the price of the full kit by $100, down to $500. You get 2 months of Viveport plus Fallout 4 VR (the most popular VR title, normally $60).
