  • Sale price: £699
  • Original price: £799

For VR enthusiasts, the HTC Vive Pro is a premium option with fantastic performance. The Vive Pro has 360 degree headset and controller tracking that feels startlingly precise.

In terms of resolution, the Vive Pro is unparalleled. Visuals are incredibly crisp and clear, with a maximum resolution of 2880 x 1660, a marked increase over the original Vive headset. The headset is comfortable to wear and easy to setup, too.

If you’re on the fence about spending £700 on a VR headset, make sure to check out our review. The major downside of the Vive Pro is that you have to buy controllers separately. Buy it now from:

HTC Vive Pro Virtual Reality System

  • Sale price: £1199
  • Original price: £1399

The Vive Pro “2.0” is marketed more towards businesses than the average gamer. The price sort of gives that away. It comes with two Steam VR 2.0 base stations for even more precise tracking and a pair of Vive controllers.

With the Vive tracker ecosystem, you can pull real-life objects into view. Again, though, the Vive Pro Virtual Reality System is marketed for business use, such as aerospace and automotive companies. Buy it now from:
