When it comes to virtual reality (VR) products from HTC Vive you’re spoilt for choice, whether you want a headset that’s got inside-out tracking or external sensors, or a system focused on business. No matter if you’re looking for your first headset or upgrading, today HTC Vive’s European store has a couple of tasty deals available.
The most eye-catching of the two being advertised is the one for the Vive Cosmos Elite. From now until 14th October 2021 if you purchase the headset for £899 GBP you’ll also get a free Vive Wireless Adaptor (worth £359.00). That’s quite the saving if you were previously thinking of purchasing both or maybe it makes the Vive Cosmos Elite a more tempting offer than others on the market.
Originally, the Vive Cosmos launched back in 2019 as the company’s first inside-out tracked headset to less than favourable reviews. The following year the Cosmos Elite came out, swapping the front plate for one compatible with SteamVR base stations, great for those who wished to upgrade from the original HTC Vive.
The Vive Cosmos Elite kit comes with the 1.0 base stations and latest Vive controllers. Specification wise it offers a combined resolution of 2880×1770 (1440×1700 per-eye) using an LCD display, 110 field of view (FoV), a hinged front to easily drop in and out of VR, built-in headphones and IPD adjustment.
The other deal is for the very latest Vive Pro 2 that launched earlier this year. Whilst nowhere near as good as the offer above, if you’re in the market for the new PC headset, pre-ordering the Vive Pro 2 full kit before 14th October 2021 will get you a £50 voucher off your next Vive.com purchase.
If you’ve been keeping up with HTC Vive news of late you’ll know that those offers end dates also coincide with an event the company is holding on the same day. Held via the Engage platform at 4 pm BST, all HTC Vive has revealed so far is a slogan “Go with the Flow”. Could there be a new piece of hardware incoming? We’ll have to wait and see. As details come in VRFocus will let you know.
