In our report earlier this week, we noted pre-orders for HTC VR headset known as the Vive would be starting next month. At the time, no specific date was known, but that's changed; the official word is February 28 is the day pre-orders will begin.
Just recently, HTC added a front-facing camera to the new Vive Pre headset, something that our own Anthony Garreffa tested, and loved. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX Titan X powered the HTC Vive Pre demos at CES 2016, providing enough GPU horsepower to drive the VR headset. The Vive will begin shipping in April, for an undisclosed price.
Our impressions of the Vive from CES 2016 were strong. Keep an eye out for our article on it, due to go live soon.
