Something's gone very wrong in the decision making process for this product.
Most VR users don't want something like this, and even I, as someone within the very small niche of people that would genuinely love a media/mindfulness-centric VR headset, don't think I'll be picking one up because its price point makes absolutely no sense. HTC continues to fail to read the room to an almost tragic degree.

EDIT: Good f*cking *lord* the price is worse than I thought, it retails in my country for the equivalent of 680 USD. At this point HTC are begging to get laughed out of the VR industry permanently.

I was soooo looking forward to this! Couldn't be more dissapointed..
Know your market HTC..
Looks like HTC wants people to be as far from reality as they are.

You've created a more expensive oculus quest but took away everything that people liked about it. Good job

To the future of HTC a genuine good luck.

Really like the streamline design (I have the older bulkier headset). I welcome the wellness/spiritual focus. And the new headset will make working and interacting virtually more comfortable.

Are the cameras for the video pass through color or B/W like the quest?
Curious if you guys at Vive have considered using this device in the low vision community like my app the nearsighted VR augmented aid or supervision cardboard. This would be a great competitor to the new iris vision device which runs about 4 grand or even E-sight which is even more expensive.

I really thought this generation of VR headsets we’re going to be at a lower price. I know Facebook can mark theirs down as low as they do because of selling data, but I do believe this is the price that VR still stands at. Let’s just hope it’s not with these new events coming up soon.

I was really looking forward to this. This headset, its direction and execution is absolutely fantastic...at 150$. Because I paid 120$ for the Avegant Glyph headset. No controllers or tracking. They originally charged USD700. Avegant went broke. You cannot charge over $500 for glorified video googles.

HTC selling this glorified Oculus Go for $500

I fear that in the quest to make the design formfactor more compact, HTC has severely compromised its functionality, potentially condemning it to forever be a niche product. Only time will tell if this product succeeds.

Pairing with a few 360 cameras, the Vive Flow could be the solution for churches or temples during COVID lockdown. Similarly the opera and symphony orchestra could be the other use case. Or pairing with a remotely controlled robot through 5G for people with disabilities or under home confinement.

The things that are unique about this headset just aren't worth the tradeoffs, and the fact it's $200 more expensive than the most popular headset.

I dont understand all the hate. They are literally help to make VR more mainstream. They are taking the nintendo approach to things in stead of the sony microsoft approach. We need more types of VR to exist. If this works well the public wins.

I can see it working if it was cheaper as a VR media device (watch the equivalent of VR YouTube or VR Netflix), but being more expensive than the quest 2 (despite being lighter and more... Hassle-free I guess?) is gonna make it not work out so well I think. Plus the main benefits I could imagine is having it be more easily portable, but where would anyone use this besides home?

What we want from HTC:

Give us good standalone vr headsets with good controllers, good tracking, make it comfortable, good quality cooling, and make the price range between $300-800 for a full kit.

Give us Desktop VR that has a very high resolution like 3200 by 1800 per eye, very high precision tracking, support to go untethered, more comfortable, reduced eye strain, higher refresh rate like 120-165hz, excellent cooling, and between $1000-1550 for a full kit.

Holy smokes Vive, how out of touch can you get? Did seriously no one at HTC voice their concern that this was an over priced super limited use tethered device that the wast majority of consumers would not be interested in?

I'm an older person who might be interested in a device like this simply to watch video while sitting in my easy chair, but to buy two of these - one for me and one for my wife - seems silly when we can enjoy our large-screen TV that's bought and paid for. These types of devices need to reach a price point that's more appealing to people on limited budgets; $1000 buys a lot of the things we actually need. It's a "no thanks" from this old codger.

Would have thought HTC would have looked more at trying to get a device that was more free from needing a pc connection so well done, however I feel this is a "lite" safe approach and could have been so much more.. its like there comparison of offering a tablet to a fully functioning PC..
I was hoping it would be more the the oculus quest and not so limited..

You know you are not looking at some new pattern when a company decides to throw away its cash cow(cellphone business) and focus on side gigs(realities industry) more, this downfall is historical.

I am confused at who are they aiming this $500 VR device for. If it has Steamdeck support and integration that would be a good selling point.
