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.

2 month Viveport subscription

Enjoy the latest immersive entertainment with the Vive. Your new Vive includes a 2 month subscription to Vive Port, so you can select five titles each month and explore a whole new way to game.

Final Soccer VR

Don't just watch the world cup. Feel like you're a part of it with Final Soccer VR. Designed for the Vive, Final Soccer VR lets you practice free kicks, have penalty shootouts against people online, or even get into goal and take on shots from your friends on their phone. And with 150 levels where you can take on the best teams in the world, you'll never run out of games to play.

So far my VR experience using the Vive is positive due to how immersive it is.
Being able to move, using Room Scale is definitely a benefit.
The Headset adjusts easily for a childs head and back to an adults head and back again.
There are a massive amount of FREE experiences to grab that are worth trying.
The cables from the receiver box to PC are far too short.
It should come supplied with a choice of cables to connect to PC... I have a GTX1070 graphics card, which only has one HDMi slot. Naturally that is used as my connection to the monitor/TV. The Vive comes packed with an HDMi cable that I cannot use. The addition of 2 alternative cables would cost HTC about £5.
