Find the Hidden HTC Vive Pro Accessories Kit
The HTC Vive Pro shipments will start next month but buyers will only get the standalone package. This means they will get the Vive Pro headset without the SteamVR base stations to track the VR headset and the controllers to interact with the VR experiences. The standalone pack seems to be designed for upgraders –current Vive owners that already have installed their VR setup and only want to add the new Vive Pro headset to their set.
In any case, HTC provides options for those players that still don’t have their own VR setup. There is a hidden Vive Pro Accessories Starter Kit on the official Vive Accessory store that only appears as a recommendation when you first add the HTC Vive Pro to the online shopping cart. The kit has a discounted price of $450.47 (from $529.96) and features two controllers and two base stations.
By adding this starter kit you end up saving $79.49. But let’s take into account that the Vive Pro itself costs $799, so if you want the complete bundle you would have to swipe the credit card for almost $1250, turning this VR system into the most expensive of all.
Unless you have tons of money in your bank accounts, we advise you to consider other options before going all-in with your savings. The original Vive bundle costs $500 and includes all of this plus a Vive headset and even a free copy of Fallout 4 VR. Besides, HTC will release a full Vive Pro set later this that includes the new controllers and base stations that support a wider room-scale area and more than two sensors.
