In order to make it more accessible, HTC on Wednesday slashed the price of its Vive virtual reality (VR) headset by Rs 16,000 in the Indian market.
Now, the headset will be available at Rs 76,990. Even after this price cut, the Vive in India costs more than double the price in the United States.
Besides that price cut, a free trial to the VR app store "Viveport" subscription will be available to the consumers. In the store, the consumers will be able to choose up to five titles to experience in a month.
"Our goal at Vive has always been to offer the best and most advanced VR system and drive mass market adoption for VR across the globe," Times Now quoted Cher Wang, Chairperson HTC as saying.
"We work tirelessly to continue to iterate and improve on Vive to deliver on the promise of VR," Gadgets 360 quoted Matthew Gepp, HTC Vive's senior social media manager as saying.
