HTC Vive pre-orders are now live

Prepare to hear the cries of thousands of wallets as $800 is ripped out of their cozy nests.


Today is HTC Vive pre-order day for those who plan on being an early adopter of not only the VR headset itself, but VR as a whole.

Pre-orders for the HTC Vive are now live on its official website, but be sure you have the $800 you’ll need to place your pre-order. While the price may seem a bit high, we think it’s actually priced appropriately for what’s offered.

HTC offered some new details regarding the Vive just last week during Mobile World Congress. It revealed the headset would allow the wearer to communicate with the outside world by syncing to their phone, allowing them to respond to both incoming and missed phone calls, receive text messages, and more.

The headset also includes a number of improved features first introduced in the Vive Pre. This includes updated wireless controllers with haptic feedback and dual-stage triggers, a front-facing camera, a redesigned headstrap, and an improved visual system.

The HTC Vive is scheduled to release in early April 2016.
