Unfortunately day for those looking for a cheap HTC Vive, as the $499 beast has been discontinued in favor of its newer counterpart, the HTC Vive Cosmos, a $699 headset. So anyone in the market for cheap PC VR better hop into the 4 year old Vive before they’re all gone.
Despite the original HTC Vive being discontinued, the HTC Vive Pro and HTC Vive Pro Eye will both continue to be sold.
We currently don’t have a plan to abandon SteamVR Tracking in any way, shape, or for form. Valve is a very good partner and we’ll continue to enjoy the benefits of that partnership.Dan O’Brien, HTC’s VR GM for America.
