The HTC Vive Just Got A Huge Price Cut

We’re particularly happy to see the Vive drop in price because of what it could mean for the future of all VR platforms. The first generation of hardware is solid and there’s a nice collection of games now available, with more coming on a regular basis. If VR gaming is to move into the mainstream, then the price of entry needs to come down to meet the core audience. We’re not saying that $600 dollars is cheap, just that it’s a much more appealing figure than $800. The idea here is that a lower price might mean more people buy the hardware. If more people buy the hardware, then more developers might make VR games. If that cycle continues, we could be looking at a much more robust VR landscape in the next year or two.
