HTC has announced it’s launching a $300 accessory bundle for new Vive users purchasing the Pro headset. Available for purchase later this week, the package includes two SteamVR base stations and two Vive controllers, all of which normally costs $520 when purchased separately.
The pricing of the Vive Pro created some confusion when it was announced last month. The device retails at $799 but doesn’t come with any bundled hardware. This was done to provide an upgrade avenue for current Vive users but renders the device pretty much useless to new buyers. Now, with this discounted hardware bundle, customers new to Vive purchasing the Pro headset will pay a total of $1,100 to get started.
