True Immersion

Once you put on the HTC Vive head­set, you’re im­mersed in a world full of sur­prises. Walk around freely and ex­plore ev­ery­thing– the Chap­er­one guid­ance sys­tem keeps you safely within the bounds of your play area while the ad­justable head­set in­cor­po­rates es­sen­tial func­tion­al­ity in­clud­ing a front fac­ing cam­era that blends phys­i­cal el­e­ments into the vir­tual world. Where other VR op­tions of­fer a win­dow into vir­tual re­al­ity, HTC Vive of­fers you a whole room.


If you pur­chase the HTC Vive from Har­vey Nor­man or JB Hi-Fi you’ll be able to get a bonus five games in­clud­ing Call of the Starseed, Jee­bo­man, Cloud Lands VR Minigolf, Zom­bie Sim­u­la­tor and A10-VR.

Room Scale

Ex­pe­ri­ence room-scale game­play with track­ing pro­vid­ing true-to-life in­ter­ac­tions. In com­bi­na­tion with wire­less con­trollers de­signed for nat­u­ral nav­i­ga­tion and in­ter­ac­tions, HTC Vive im­merses you vis­ually, phys­i­cally and emo­tion­ally in the vir­tual world.

In­spir­ing Con­tent

A savvy part­ner­ship with Valve Corp has seen the HTC Vive be­come a hot­bed for next-gen­er­a­tion VR soft­ware ex­pe­ri­ences. There are over 1000 ti­tles avail­able and de­liv­ered via the world-class Valve SteamVR and HTC Vive­port on­line stores. Unit­ing pas­sion, tal­ent, and in­no­va­tion, Vive de­liv­ers on the prom­ise of VR with best-in-class tech­nol­ogy and con­tent that com­pe­ti­tion can’t match.
