HTC is putting out two new VR headsets, one of which is a successor to the Vive Pro. Revealed today were the Vive Pro 2 and the Vive Focus 3, with the former acting as HTC's flashship gaming VR headset and the latter serving its purpose as a business-focused VR device. The Vive Pro 2 sees some major refreshes and improvements from the original, such as a 5K resolution, along with 120Hz, and is backwards compatible with previous hardware. This includes the Base Station 1.0 or 2.0 sensors, or the Valve Index's and original Vive's controllers. It'll be launching on June 4th, though you can pre-order it today for $799.
