HTC Vive has announced today a price reduction dropping the price of the VR system to £599.
Starting today the Vive will be more attainable to the mass market by knocking off over £150 from the price tag in the UK and will still come with a free trial to Viveport.
Our goal at Vive has always been to offer the best and most advanced VR system and drive mass market adoption for VR across the globe.
– Cher Wang, Chairwoman, HTC
