HTC has confirmed with the Telegraph that pre-orders for their upcoming Vive VR Headset will open on February 29th, 2016. The headset will ship sometime in April but no pricing has been revealed.
HTC recently showed off the latest development kit for the Vive which adds a front-facing camera which they announced as a breakthrough for the technology. This addition ultimately delayed the HTC Vive by four months.
The HTC Vive pre-order date will be quite an interesting one as we see pricing and final specifications on the consumer edition for the headset. We’ll also see the very first competition within the VR sector as two major competitors go head to head.
