HTC Vive review


Don't just play games; touch them, be surrounded by them, live them. That's the promise that only Vive currently fulfils

Room-scale is the best kind of VR ; Motion controllers make you feel even more immersed ; Steam support means it’s easier to get games

Heavier, less secure on your bonce than Oculus Rift ; Fiddly firmware and a mess of cables

It asks more of you than Oculus does, but Vive also rewards you with an even more immersive, transformative VR experience

HTC Vive Consumer Edition First Impressions: Bulky, but Awesome


After a little less than a week with the HTC Vive, I have to say that the new virtual-reality headset from HTC and Valve can be disorienting. It's hard to set up. It can be a little wonky. But it's also completely amazing.

HTC Vive


The HTC Vive is the cutting-edge of virtual-reality technology

Incredible, immersive free-moving VR ; Intuitive controllers with good battery life ; Solid selection of games already available ; Nothing else quite like it

HTC Vive review: Truly immersive VR comes at a cost


The HTC Vive offers the best in-home VR experience yet, but it's too unwieldy to truly enjoy for extended play sessions.

Sharp and incredibly immersive VR ; Head tracking is superior to Oculus Rift ; Whole-room VR is impressive ; Motion controllers work well

Expensive ; Tricky setup ; Uncomfortable to wear for long periods

The Vive is no doubt the geekiest thing I have in my home right now -- and that's saying something. It's an impressive effort by HTC, which has had a rough few years in mobile, and Valve. It's oh-so-close to being the Holy Grail of VR experiences. It's...
