HTC Vive orders start processing as we’re shown what comes in the box


The two most anticipated VR devices since forever – the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive – are on the brink of launching. With Oculus shipments about to deliver, HTC felt compelled to remind pre-orderers that they should be expecting packages in the near future too, while giving us a sneak peak at what comes in the box.


Here is the list of components found in the HTC Vive Box:

  • A – Base station x 2
  • B – Sync cable
  • C – Base station power adapter x2
  • D – Mounting kit
  • E – Link box
  • F – Link box mounting pad
  • G – Link box power adapter
  • H – HDMI cable
  • I – USB cable
  • J – Earbuds
  • K – Alternate face cushion (narrow)
  • L – Cleaning cloth
  • M – Documentation
  • N – Headset with 3-in-1 cable and audio cable
  • O – Controller (with lanyard) x 2
  • P – Micro USB charger x 2

We’re used to quickly discarding the “manual” in favor of diving directly into the gadgets we purchase, but something tells us that letter “M” – the documentation – is going to be especially important for the HTC Vive.

The inevitable upcoming flurry of HTC Vive unboxings just got a lot less suspenseful, but we’re no less excited for that package to land on our doorstep.

When will it ship? Although HTC’s e-mail claims “it’s in the works” and states, “Your order’s being processed now,” the actual order confirmation page still says that shipments will start going out in May 2016.
