HTC Vive Price Rises to Over £800 in UK Following Brexit

    In the UK, the price of the HTC Vive virtual reality headset is increasing from £689 to £759. As of August 1, it will cost around £820, with postage and packaging factored in.
    "HTC continuously monitors and adjusts pricing to ensure we are providing our customers with the best value possible," the company said on its blog.
    "Due to recent currency valuation changes and the current value of the GBP we are adjusting the price of the HTC Vive in the UK."
    Although HTC doesn't outright cite Brexit as the cause of the change, the value of the pound immediately decreased following the announcement that Britain has voted to leave the European Union.
    The headset launched in April and, in GameSpot's HTC Vive review, Peter Brown described it as "the only way to experience today's most advanced VR technology from the comfort of home."
    "Before you take the plunge with Vive, you have to prepare yourself accordingly. Unlike Rift, Vive comes with strict spatial requirements if you plan to utilize its hardware's full potential. It's not the easiest suite of hardware to set up, nor is it as refined as Rift, but Vive delivers the most advanced VR experience to date, a luxury that comes at a cost and with compromises."
