The HTC Vive just got a whole lot cheaper in the UAE

HTC has announced a Dh700 price reduction for its Vive VR headset. From today, the Vive will be available for Dh2,599. All Vive purchases will come with a trial Viveport Subscription, where consumers can choose up to five titles per month to experience, and copies of many of the most popular pieces of VR content today, including Google’s Tilt Brush, Everest VR, and Richie’s Plank Experience.

“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,” said Cher Wang, HTC Chairwoman. She added that the price drop was merely an adage to the company’s commitment to making VR technologies more accessible to a larger audience and driving the industry forward.
