Share

In any case, the Vive Pro is available for preorder starting today, with shipments starting April 5. As well, the new headset has duel-OLED displays, with a resolution of 2880 x 1600 combined, a boost in resolution of 78% over the current-generation Vive. The idea behind the HTC Vive Pro is that the headset will be swapped out with the original one.

There will also be a bundle that includes all the hardware along with the Vive Pro HMD announced in the future, although no pricing information for that option has been announced. Effective today, the original Vive costs $499, versus its previous $599 price tag.

Salah 'unstoppable' like Messi - Watford boss Gracia
Salah, 25, has been a revelation on Merseyside since he joined the club from Roma in a £36.9million deal last summer. A team that makes him feel like he is the main man, well that's because he is.

We'll have to wait and see what those newfangled controllers and Lightboxes for the HTC Vive Pro end up costing, but already HTC's newest VR headset appears to be quite an investment.

That's around the same price as the original Vive headset at launch, but it's been reduced a fair bit since.

Lalu Prasad held guilty fourth time: All about the fodder scam case
In this case, he was accused of withdrawing - fraudulently - Rs 37.62 crore from the Chaibasa treasury. The decision to hand over the fodder scam case to CBI court was taken at the High Court's order.

"What this does, with the higher pixel density, is give you the ability to read in VR", HTC Vive general manager Daniel O'Brien told Polygon. "By lowering the price of the current Vive, we are making VR more accessible while expanding the potential market for developers".

Vive Pro HMD pre-orders begin today on Vive.com and other Vive retailers with units shipping globally on April 5th. The VIVE Pro will ship with a redesigned headstrap, which promises increased comfort and easy adjustment, and as a bonus, it'll be compatible with SteamVR Tracking 1.0 and 2.0. Both the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift are coming up on their second anniversaries, and while each has made some interim changes (Oculus's Touch controllers, the Vive's Deluxe Audio Strap), the core experience hasn't changed much. HTC also said that all Vive Pro head-mounted displays purchased by June 3 will come with a free six-month trial to Viveport Subscription, where consumers can choose up to five titles per month from more than 400 available offerings. Those who sign up before March 22 can lock in a price of $7 a month for the rest of the year.
