HTC Vive pre-orders now live

HTC Vive pre-orders now live

The day has come to clear out your bank and pre-order an HTC Vive.

A special page is now up on Steam with the actual pre-order page live on the HTC site. The international prices were revealed over the weekend but we were not sure about the shipping costs. In the UK the kit costs £689 but you need to add the shipping on top which takes it to £746.60.

“Our collaboration with HTC and the VR development community has allowed us to create the most compelling and complete VR solution,” said Valve’s Gabe Newell. “In the coming weeks, many of these developers will launch an incredible first generation of VR titles to consumers around the world.

It’s a lot of money, but if you have lots to spare and want to take a punt on VR, then splash the cash now. I have a feeling most PC games would rather invest in a better graphics card or upgrade their PC before grabbing one of these though.
