Get in line, HTC Vive pre-orders open April 22

The price might bum you out but you'll be guaranteed to get one first if you sign up early

The good news just keeps coming for tech fans - just a few days after Samsung S8 launch, HTC just confirmed when pre-orders will open for the Vive. You'll be able to save your spot in line for HTC's headset on the 22nd of April exclusively from Amazon India.

Almost after a year of the international launch, India finally gets to wrap their peepers around the glorious HTC VR headset. It's a big improvement over the original developer edition from 2016, with a more comfortable headset, smaller motion-tracking sensors and controllers that use rechargeable batteries.

A camera built into the front of the new headset blurs the lines between real and virtual reality even further - and should save your shins by showing the outlines of your furniture when you're wearing the headset.

It still gives Vive a big head start, though, with the Oculus Rift still being absent from Indian markets. 

The one big question is that how much is it for? And it's not pretty. The HTC Vive costs a whopping ₹92,990 and will be available to pre-order exclusively on Amazon India - and that doesn't include the price of the beefy gaming PC needed to actually run it.

You also get two fully-fledged VR experiences - Everest VR and Richie’s Plank Experience - if you order it from Amazon.
