The HTC Vive (pronounced Vive) will begin taking pre-orders February 29, in anticipation for the VR device thingy's full release in April. Although we don't know the price, with the addition of a front-facing camera leading to a four month delay, much like the Rift the Vive is being positioned as a high-end device. It's almost as if Virtual Reality will be for the rich, and Regular Reality for the rest of us.
HTC Vive, which is a co-production between mobile company HTC and lovers of evaporated hot water Valve, was formally announced last year. In addition to pre-orders it is expected that laptop and PC manufacturers like HP will be releasing custom VR-ready systems to accommodate the hardware requirements of Virtual Reality. Which, as the Oculus Rift system requirements pointed out, are pretty hefty.
