      Lose yourself

      True virtual reality gaming is here. Whether you're piloting a spaceship into outer space, exploring the seemingly deserted ruins of a castle, or even trying your hand at surgery, you can expect the most immersive gaming experience ever.

      A joint venture between HTC and gaming legends Valve, the HTC Vive gives you a full alternate reality experience that you can enjoy at home. With the latest VR tech, including a front facing camera that allows elements of the real world to appear in your virtual world, the Vive will take you on a journey that you'll never forget.

      Enjoy pinpoint accuracy

      Dual motion controls and high-tech sensors throughout the headset give pinpoint accuracy as you explore and interact with digital worlds. Turn your head, touch objects, and even move around and the Vive duplicates your movements in game to make it feel like you're genuinely there.

      Since the first concept, the Vive has evolved to become more powerful, more comfortable, and more user friendly, so everyone from serious gamers to whole families can easily discover this incredible new technology.

      There's no shortage of content to discover, as virtual reality games are currently in development by many of the biggest and most respected studios. It's not just games either as virtual car showrooms, 3D product design, and other lifestyle content is coming over the next few months and years.

      Get your hands on the next generation of gaming.

      Three free games

      The Vive includes free games to download, so you can start playing straight away. Feel what it's like to climb the highest mountain on Earth through a sequence of immersive first person locations in Everest VR. Or dare yourself to walk to the end of Richie's Plank Experience, situated 160 metres above the ground! Google Tilt Brush lets you paint in 3D space with virtual reality. Your room is your canvas. Your palette is your imagination. The possibilities are endless.

      For a limited period of time you can now get a month's free subscription to Vive Port.

      Please note:

      Game download codes will be received via email after purchase. To download please visit www.vive.com/code and follow the instructions.

      Excellent piece of tech, really improves the gaming experience for the whole family.

      Most fun I've had since I was a kid, quite magical. Easy to set up & intuitive ro use.
      Currently costs a lot of money for what it actually is; but I’m sure cost will come down as with most tech today.

      Mindblowing fun.
      some weak design points, quite uncomfortable, though im sure there are 3rd party addons you can buy to reduce this.

      This is so immersive and when you take it off you genuinely feel you have been somewhere else. The future of gaming without a shadow of a doubt.
      Still a bit expensive. It can steam up a little when first using but it's not a massive issue.

      Fantastic when it Works.
      Too many crashes and the satellites are too sensitive and give me black spots; I only have a small room to play in.
