HTC Vive has announced that it has reduced the price of its Vive Virtual Reality system by Rs. 16,000 in India. The VR system will now be available for Rs. 76,990 in the country.
Buyers also get a free subscription to Viveport which offers users five free titles every month. Users also get access to popular VR content available in the market which includes Google's Tilt Brush, Everest VR, and Richie's Plank Experience.
Cher Wang, Chairwoman, HTC declared,"Our goal at Vive has always been to offer the best and most advanced VR system and drive mass market adoption for VR across the globe. We're continuing to deliver on that commitment with this new price for Vive, making VR more accessible to a broader audience and driving the entire VR industry forward. Vive's game-changing technology, best-in-class content and unmatched global partners are fulfilling the promise of VR like never before. With highly anticipated titles and the upcoming launch of Vive Tracker, there has never been a better time to embrace Vive, and enjoy the most immersive VR experience available."
Vive VR system comes with 2 base stations for tracking, 2 motion controllers for VR experiences and connection cables along with newly introduced materials that HTC claims to be lighter and more comfortable for use.
Vive VR system is an independent platform that does not require any sort of connection to a smartphone or console for operation. HTC is trying to make the technology more accessible in the country, however, the price is still nowhere close affordable even for the most enthusiastic gadget lovers.
