Starting April 5th, HTC will celebrate the second anniversary of its virtual reality (VR) system Vive. You will be able to purchase a complete VR experience with the newly-revealed Vive Pro Starter Kit at a price of $1,099. #realitymagic
The Vive Pro Starter Kit comes with one Vive Pro and two of both the Vive 1.0 controllers and the Vive 1.0 base stations. Unveiled at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, the HTC Vive Pro brings an update to the classic HTC Vive. The Vive Pro alone costs $799, but does not come with the controllers and base station.
If you already have a classic HTC Vive and purchase the Vive Pro, you will be given $100 in Vive Pro content credit and your Viveport subscription will be extended for another year. There will also be a 50% discount on three-month subscriptions soon.
HTC is planning more freebies for Vive owners, especially on the content front, to celebrate Vive’s anniversary. Viveport subscribers will also get a copy of Everest VR and Vive Studios content like Front Defense or Arcade Saga.
