HTC Vive Launching in UK for £689
Out on April 5th and comes with three games.
HTC Vive, the virtual reality headset created in conjunction between HTC and Valve Corporation, will be releasing on April 5th in the UK for £689. It was already announced to retail for $800 in the United States.
The VR headset will release with three games for a limited time. These include Google’s Tilt Brush, which lets you paint in a three-dimensional space with stars, fire and much more; Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives, a humorous title where robots have occupied all the real human jobs and you now have to learn what it’s like to get a job; and The Fantastic Contraption which involves players building a machine on a floating island somewhere in the sky.
The Consumer Edition in the United States was billed to come with two wireless controllers and “base stations”, a link box and earbuds in addition to the headset and games. It’s likely the UK release features the same amount of stuff but with the extra game.
