In addition, the Vive will be available for an in-store experience across select locations in India. The system includes VR controllers, room scale movement, and a head mounted display that features a built in camera. Besides free shipping, Indian customers will also get two fully-fledged VR experiences when they order the Vive from Amazon. This includes Everest VR, and Richie’s Plank Experience.

Vive has totally transformed the way we interact with the world, bringing ultimate mainstream experience to the consumer. Now consumers and developers can experience immersive virtual reality in a way that reshapes human imagination beyond boundaries.”
