TC is currently gearing up to launch their new Vive Cosmos virtual reality headset but as yet no official pricing has been announced by HTC, although a new listing on the Argos Superstore website lists the new VR headset as £699.99. Perhaps Argos have let the price slip a little bit earlier than HTC would have desired.
Unfortunately the pages already been replaced with an error message indicating that “this product hasn’t been released yet.” Although it is still available via the Web Archive service.
