Pre-orders have now started for those in New Zealand that want the HTC Vive headset. The price for the device was also revealed.
For Kiwi technology enthusiasts, the HTC Vive will cost the $949 USD with GST included. However, this price does not include shipping and other additional costs. The consumer version comes with three games for you to try out.
* Tilt Brush, by Google: Paint in 3D space with virtual reality. Unleash your creativity with three-dimensional brush strokes, stars, light, and even fire. Your room is your canvas. Your palette is your imagination. The possibilities are endless.
* Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives, by Owlchemy Labs: In a firmly tongue-in-cheek world where robots have replaced all human jobs, step into the ‘Job Simulator’ to learn what it was like 'to job'.
* Fantastic Contraption, by Northway Games in collaboration with Radial Games: Imagine walking around a grassy island floating in the sky, building a machine the size of a horse with your own hands, and then watching it roll out into the world.
The HTC Vive should be out from May 2016. Aside from the headset you also get a ton of other stuff such as two controllers, motion sensor, camera and more.
