As of now, the HTC Vive in India costs more than double the U.S. price, at Rs. 92,900.
Most consumers are either unfamiliar with VR headsets or not interested in owning one. The cost of the system has been brought down to $599.
Even with the price drop, the HTC Vive is still $200 more expensive than the current offer from Oculus where their special is selling the Rift and Touch hand controllers for $399. The company noted that the new entry price will make the system more accessible to the mass market across the globe. Each headset will also come with free copies of popular VR titles, including Google Tilt Brush, Everest VR and Richie's Plank Experience. However, HTC noted that the Vive hardware has attracted enterprise partners such as Intel, UPS, Volkswagen and Salesforce as enterprise partners. The new price is applicable to Vive.com, and we can expect that price to move through the e-tail and retail channel. Steiber also made it clear that this discount has nothing to do with the Oculus Rift price cut; rather, the idea was to make high-end VR affordable for everyone.
