HTC’s Vive VR headset could cost nearly thrice as much as the Oculus Rift: Rumor

HTC Vive Pre

The #OculusRift was in the news recently as it went up for commercial pre-orders at a whopping $599 apiece. However, HTC’s upcoming virtual reality headset, the Vive VR (or the Vive Pre), could be released for about $1500, a new rumor claims.

The HTC Vive has some cool tricks up its sleeve with the front facing camera and deep integration with Steam content, but we don’t think it will be able to make any mark on the virtual reality industry which is still in its infancy carrying an exorbitant price tag like this.

There’s still not enough evidence to corroborate this particular rumor, so we won’t go so far as to say that this will in fact be the end pricing of the Vive VR. However, given how much work HTC has put into this particular headset, we won’t be completely surprised if this turns out to be the actual cost of the headset.

What do you think would be a suitable pricing for the HTC Vive headset?
