It looks like HTC is making a final push to relieve itself of Vive Pro stock in Europe, as the company is including a copy of Valve’s critically-acclaimed VR title Half-Life: Alyx (2020) with purchase of the full kit.

The Europe-only deal is taking place between May 11th – 25th, and is only available with purchase of the full Vive Pro kit. The US-facing site is currently out of stock of both the McLaren Limited Edition and Vive Pro Starter Kit; he full Vive Pro Kit is no longer available there.

Priced at €1,219 (£1,119), the Vive Pro Full Kit includes the headset itself, two SteamVR 2.0 base stations, two ‘wand’ style controllers, and all the necessary cabling to get you into PC VR. Besides a download code for Half-Life: Alyx, the offer also includes two free months of Viveport Infinity, the company’s Netflix-style game download service.

The deal is also available through online retailers such as Scan, Overclockers, Curry’s PC World, Ebuyer, Box.co.uk, and Amazon.

HTC Reveals Vive Proton, a Compact Standalone VR Headset Prototype

First launched back in 2018, Vive Pro is now being discontinued in favor of the newer Vive Pro Eye, a version of the headset with integrated Tobii eye-tracking. Vive Pro notably upped the resolution of the original 2016-era Vive and included the ergonomic audio headstrap as a standard feature.

Earlier this year HTC permanently reduced the price of Vive Pro to $600 (or local equivalent), which includes only the headset. With that, it’s possible we’re seeing the last Vive Pro stocks dwindle as Vive Cosmos and Vive Pro Eye take its place as the company’s flagship headsets.

    I thought their vive pro was for pro market, free Half-life game bundle doesn’t sound like pro bundle.
    With such a price, such an old hardware (and still those crappy wand controllers), even if it features a integrated 200 dollars eye tracking, is a rip off.

    incredible pricing ! incredible offer ! incredibly…insane !

    Just get the index the extra 100 dollars are worth it

    • Field of view is not 130 degree on index? (Would be great) it’s heavily dependent on eye relief which is determined by craniofacial anthropometry (i.e. your face and head). Personally I found the Vive Pro more comfortable than my index.

      I’m getting slightly more vertical, and about the same horizontally on my index than my Vive, albeit with less stereo overlap. I used the thinnest face cushion on Vive, am using 3D printed wide face gasket on Index.

      Something the Vive Pro is better for is darker scenes, the Index doesn’t handle dark scenes…at all well.

      I’ve had to refund several games that were unplayable on Index due to its LCD display, the most recent “Gloomy Eyes” which looked great on Vive Pro Eye.

      (Base station version, that is. Both come with 2 base stations.)

    • mfx

      Res 1440×1600 for both… actually even here the vice pro loose because it’s real rgb pixel on the index and crap pentile on the Vive.

      • ArSh

        Vive Pro is OLED, Index is crap LCD.

  • ArSh

    You can get the Vive Pro headset, Index basestations, Index controllers (which includes HL:Alyx) for only £20 more than the “full” Pro kit which has the old wand controllers…

    Need StarVR one for that! ;)

  • I admit I don’t understand this move. The Pro should be for prosumers and enterprises… IMHO they should have offered free assitance, or Vive Events for free
