HTC VIVE Turns 2 - VIVE Pro Starter Kit

HTC VIVE Turns 2 - VIVE Pro Starter Kit

Previously the upcoming Vive Pro was offered only as a standalone headset; customers would need to either repurpose their original Vive gear or pick up a separate accessory kit for $450 to actually use the VR upgrade. In the end they questioned the value you get for the price, as the price increased significantly more than the performance did.

So today we're announcing the Vive Pro Starter Kit available on Vive.com starting April 5.

As we head to our annual celebration of VIVE Day and the HTC Vive Pro's official launch we couldn't be more excited about where VR is headed.

As HTC saw it, the most likely outcome was that it would be existing Vive owners that would be buying a Vive Pro. It includes the Vive Pro headset, of course, but also two Vive 1.0 controllers and two 1.0 base stations. HTC announced on March 19 the price and the release date of the new high-end Vive Pro. HTC has announced all this to celebrate the HTC Vive's two-year anniversary, which is 5 April. But if you already ordered the Pro and are now kicking yourself, HTC is offering a £75 Viveport voucher and will extend your subscription to one year.

Carter's recent acting roles include three episodes as President Olivia Marsdin on " Supergirl " in the 2016-17 season. But the series, along with Carter's performance, have given " Wonder Woman " a long legacy as a feminist symbol.

Pre-ordering the HTC Vive Pro comes with an incentive as well.

We've got more in store soon on the full 2.0 Vive Pro kits, but it was important to us to get this out as quickly as possible.

In addition, HTC has also confirmed that the bog standard Vive is getting a price reduction to a more affordable £500 price tag. "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". These improved graphics and audio allow for users to experience VR with enhanced clarity, making it the most realistic and immersive VR experience on the market today. Everything a VR professional needs is in Vive Pro. The only option was to purchase both a HTC Vive system and the HTC Vive Pro headset, which would cost you a hefty sum.
