The partnership between HTC and Valve has been one of the most successful in recent history, with the VIVE and VIVE Pro proving particularly popular. The latter is considered one of the very best virtual reality headsets you can buy, with a host of premium features making for a truly immersive experience. 

Now, the VIVE Pro has been permanently discounted, giving you significant savings over its original price.

You can now pick up the VIVE Pro Starter Kit, complete with two bespoke controllers and two Base Stations, for just £899. That's a saving of £220 over the RRP.

Similar savings can be found if you step up to the Full Kit, which adds precision tracking and next-generation Base Stations for the ultimate experience. You can buy that for £1119, slashing £180 over the original asking price. 

Similar discounts can be found if you'd like the VIVE Pro Headset, which is £200 off at just £599.

What's more, buying any of these headsets will get you a 6 free months of unlimited VR with VIVEPORT INFINITY. This subscription service gives you access to all the top VR content that the VIVE Pro has to offer, and will save you an additional £77 compared to buying separately. 

The HTC Vive has long been considered one of the very best VR headsets on the market. Complete with excellent tracking throughout the whole room and a gorgeous 90Hz display, it's one of the most accomplished ways to experience virtual reality. 

2018's Pro model only enhanced its appeal, with a noticeable upgrade in display resolution and all-new Conversation Mode. Read our HTC Vive Pro review to learn more. 

The main sticking point for many people has been the Vive Pro's price. With much more affordable headsets on the market, it has been difficult to justify splashing out over £1000 on virtual reality equipment. 

That's one of the reasons why news of a permanent price drop is so exciting.
