HTC Vive VR headset receives price cut in India and U.S

Last year HTC forayed into the virtual reality segment with the $700 Vive VR headset. It also made its way to India, back in April this year for a whooping Rs. 92,990. Now it has received price cut in the U.S and India. 

The HTC Vive VR headset price has been slashed by $200 in the U.S and is now available for $599, while in India it has received Rs. 16,000, and will now sell for Rs. 76,990 exclusively on Amazon India. Even with the price cut, the VR headset in India costs more than double the U.S price.

It also comes bundled with a free trial of Viveport (HTC's global store for VR content) Subscription, which gives you access to over 200 virtual-reality game. You can pick a maximum of five titles in a month. 

To recap the feature, HTC Vive is powered by Valves Steam VR tracking for its VR experience. It has room-scale motion with precision tracking, meaning users can walk around and explore virtual space from all angles to experience virtual reality. The headset features built-in front camera that blends physical objects into the virtual world and room scale movement. It also features 110 degree field of view, intuitive controls and HD haptic feed back.

The VR headset ships with a pair of wireless VR controllers with haptic feedback and dual-stage triggers, Vive base station (to track users movements), a Vive Link Box and a pair of earbuds.

It's worth mentioning that the minimum requirements your PC needs to run Vive include ― Intel Core i5-4590/AMD FX 8350 processor; NVIDIA GTX970/AMD Radeon R9 290 GPU; 4GB RAM; HDMI 1.4/DisplayPort 1.2; USB 2.0 port; Windows 7 and up.
