DOTA 2 Branded HTC Vive Released By Valve; $800 Price Tag
The VR headset, the HTC Vive has been out for a while now and VR enthusiasts have had some time playing with this new tech. The headset is offering amazing VR experience for games as well as other forms of entertainment media. Now Valve has released a DOTA 2 branded HTC Vive headset at the international DOTA 2 event.
This is not the first time we have seen an HTC Vive special edition. A business version also came out a few weeks ago which was aimed at companies and firms that needed VR support. Now we are seeing this DOTA 2 branded HTC Vive version from Valve.
This DOTA 2 branded HTC Vive will cost you $800 and there is nothing special about the headset either. It is the same device with a different paint job. That is how I would describe it in short. Valve has teased a spectator mode for the DOTA 2 branded HTC Vive and this might be for the championship viewers. However, this could also come out as a worldwide thing for all the DOTA 2 gamers around the world.
DOTA 2 is an internationally played game so I see no reason why this could not be a thing in the future. If a VR version of Fallout4 can be made then so can this. The device is still pretty expensive and I do not see why someone would pay for this paint job. The vanilla version looked decent but this is just odd.
I am a DOTA 2 player myself but I do not see myself going out and getting one of these DOTA 2 Branded HTC Vive headsets. Maybe that is just me. Would you want one of these?
Maybe this is a gimmick to get people to buy more HTC Vive VR headsets. How many different themes are we going to see in the future? Time will tell.
