Comes with three games on April 5.


The HTC Vive virtual reality hardware will cost £689 when it goes on sale in the UK, April 5.

The headset ships with three games for that price, although only for a limited time offer. They are:

  • Tilt Brush, by Google: Paint in 3D space with virtual reality. Unleash your creativity with three-dimensional brush strokes, stars, light, and even fire. Your room is your canvas. Your palette is your imagination. The possibilities are endless.
  • Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives, by Owlchemy Labs: In a firmly tongue-in-cheek world where robots have replaced all human jobs, step into the ‘Job Simulator’ to learn what it was like ‘to job’.
  • Fantastic Contraption, by Northway Games in collaboration with Radial Games: Imagine walking around a grassy island floating in the sky, building a machine the size of a horse with your own hands, and then watching it roll out into the world.

So, do you have almost £700 to spend on VR? Because if you have, I’ve got some magic beans I can sell you.
