HTC VIVE PRO Pre-Orders Live. Current Gen price drops to $500


The HTC VIVE PRO is the next generation head mounted display from HTC who has positioned themselves as pro-immersive, embracing high computing power while other producers seem to be focusing on VR for casual users. I for one am not pre-ordering but do envision myself jumping onboard down the road. My next investment in hardware is going to 3 additional trackers for full-body tracking but greater pixel density means greater immersion. The current generation of HTV VIVE bundles are now just $499 and include Fallout 4VR.
