Each purchase comes with two pieces of content, Richie’s Plank Experience and Everest VR, plus they’ll also be able signup for one month’s free access to Viveport Subscription, so they can pick five monthly selections from a specially curated collection of VR titles.
The financing option is located on the billing page upon check out via the HTC Vive website.
For those that already have the headset, the Vive Deluxe Audio Strap is set to launch globally on 6th June 2017, retailing for $99.99 USD/ €119.99 EUR, £99.99. Benefits of the device include a much tidier cable layout, integrated headphones (reducing cables) and a quick fasten and release system.
