If the price of VR has been prohibitive, HTC and HP are attempting to lower bar with their PC HTC Vive bundle which has just launched today.

    The bundle includes a HP ENVY 750-470na alongside a full Vive VR system for £1,499. The bundle has been designed to be easy to setup and comes with a USB drive containing hardware set up instructions and required software to get the VR setup up and running.

    Dan O’Brien, VP of Virtual Reality at HTC said: “The Vive Ready HP Computer bundle provides a simple and affordable way for people to get their hands on Vive, without compromising on a truly immersive VR experience. We’re committed to making advanced room-scale technology accessible to as many people as possible, and our new bundle together with HP makes it easier than ever before to get started in VR.”

    The new bundle is only worth it if you are planning on changing PCs or moving over to PC and it’s not super hi-specced. Might be worth a look if you’re on a tight budget and want VR.
