HTC Vive is a VR headgear developed by HTC and Valve Corporation. It was released in April 2016. So it been a year since it released, how is it? Does it worth the money??
A lot of people I talked are interested in VR, but very few of them actually own any VR gears, one main reason is the cost of playing VR. The HTC Vive is sell for $799 (without tax) plus the cost for upgrade if your PC is not powerful enough. So it could cost around $1000 in general to play HTC Vive. Not mentioning the cost for the programs and games for the VR.
So does it worth the money? Yes, if you can afford to buy all those cool games and have a PC that can run the games efficiently (smooth and not lag), and have a 3×3 meters area to play it. Those are the requirement for a full VR experience. If you are missing anything I just mentioned, then NO!
Even though I said it would worth the money to get HTC Vive, you might want to hold on to your money, because the new generation of VR is on the way!!!! And the new generation of VR gear can be installed with mod, allow user to “upgrade ” their VR headgear if they spend their $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for a even better experience!
VR is expensive hobby, do your research before sinking yourself into the black hole!!!
