Rumor: HTC Vive price might be as high as $1,500

Forums - PC Discussion - Rumor: HTC Vive price might be as high as $1,500

androidauthority.com & Focus Taiwan are just trolling with clickbait "rumors & estimates" that are much higher than anyone else, to get site clicks.

Thats my opinion. I dont think you should reward sites like that with visits.

I read in a german magazine (they tested both) that Sony’s Playstation VR is not sas good as the Oculus Rift, so I expect a price around 300$ and not more than the price of the Oculus Rift.

Yep not as good, no controllers or games prepackaged and you have a much cheaper product. Really can't believe they added an X1 controller to the rift. What a stupid thing to do when the thing is already priced so high.

Wouldn't really surprise me if Sony themselves were leaking false rumors about the price in order to highlight and bring attention to the fact of how cheap it will be on launch.

The more info that comes out, the more ik convinced we'll see a launch price of $300 +-$50.

4) Sony’s Playstation VR is rumored to have a price tag anywhere between $800-$1,200

5) $1,500 HTC Vive is simply the most premium so far

Rofl.

A 1200$ PSVR is never ever ever ever ever ever ever going to happen.

A 800$ is not going to happen either.

600$ is pushing it.



Sounds like click bait, why are we getting PC related click bait anyway?.

Also why do we have premium anything in this world?. Someone please tell me how anything premium is factually not worth anything.



                                       

The psvr rumor includes the price of the PS4, Move controller and ps camera for tracking as well as this "power boosting device". The head set itself doesn't have the tech ORvr has, so it'll be cheaper to make. You could also say the price of ORvr is 1,600 because of the PC hardware you'll need.



 

Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

Believe it! Google is taking the safest route.

I think that would be counterproductive, maybe even disillusion people for the device by "forcing" them to think of life without PSVR, cuz almost no one would buy it at that price.

Those numbers don't make sense to me either.

Maybe information on the cost for the PSVR components could shed some light.
