The consumer edition of HTC Vive is here and has some insane things, for which it got lot of attention from the tech community. The design has not much difference than the one showcased in CES as HTC Vive pre. According to The Verge "The company has only made a few ergonomic tweaks and optimizations, so you'll have to look closely to spot the differences".

Seems, at this price range, HTC Vive has also got some accessories like wireless controller, Vive base stations, a Vive Link Box and a pair of ear buds. HTC Vive is the closest competitor for Oculus Rift which cost around $600.

For a limited period of time, HTC Vive will be available wit two free VR games: The 2050 Archives and Fantastic Contraption.
