Well, the wait is over, and all the speculation can be put to rest. We finally have an official price for the HTC Vive Pro. In an announcement made today by HTC, the Vive Pro will launch April 5 and is available for pre-order starting today. The price for the new headset is set at $800.
You can place your pre-order at Vive.com and all orders placed before June 3, will include a six-month Viveport subscription for free. The $800 price point does not include any lighthouses or controllers and the complete package is not due to be release until later this year.
The HTC Vive is also making waves today. HTC announced that its flagship HMD is receiving a $100 price cut, bringing the total price down to $500. This package does include controllers and lighthouses. Everything you need to dive into a great VR experience, including a two-month trial for Viveport.
At $800, the Vive Pro might be a tough pill to swallow. But, HTC did indicate that the updated HMD was targeted to its enterprise consumers. It will be interesting to see the pre-order sales numbers, once the sticker shock has settled.
