VODAFONE LAUNCHES THE NEW HTC VIVE COSMOS ELITE, THE PC-VR FOR ELITE GAMING

Doha, 07 December 2020: Vodafone Qatar has launched HTC Vive Cosmos Elite, the very latest premium PC-based virtual reality (VR) gaming unit promising gamers a more fully immersive gaming experience.

Qatar’s gaming enthusiasts struggling to choose between the many VR systems now available on the market – whether as first-time buyers or as an upgrade from their current first-generation VR system – need look no further. The HTC Vive Cosmos Elite, an upgraded version of HTC's modular Vive Cosmos headset, uses a detachable faceplate to enable compatibility with HTC’s legacy external sensors. 

Like all of the Cosmos headsets, Cosmos Elite is built on the same core foundation, which means the same flip-up head-mount design, fresnel lenses, and 1,440 × 1,700 LCD displays with hardware IPD adjustment. But Cosmos Elite is designed to appeal to VR enthusiasts who want to leverage the power of SteamVR Tracking, the same Valve-made external tracking tech which has powered all of HTC’s PC VR headsets prior to Cosmos.

While Cosmos Elite is technically capable of the same level of inside-out tracking as other Cosmos headsets, the Elite comes with a unique faceplate which is covered in sensors that detect tracking signals from two external base stations. Though it doesn’t have the convenience of inside-out tracking, SteamVR Tracking is widely considered a gold-standard for VR tracking thanks to its speed, accuracy, coverage, and robustness to varying lighting conditions.

Since Cosmos Elite uses SteamVR Tracking, it doesn’t use the same controllers as the other Cosmos headsets; instead it uses the Vive wand controllers which launched with the original Vive.

The HTC VIVE Cosmos Elite headset and a pair of controls will retail for the limited time launch price of QAR 3,799. The special launch offer includes a free two-month membership of VIVEPORT Infinity, offering unlimited access to hundreds of premium VR apps, games, and videos and a range of other content exclusive to subscribers. Vive Cosmos is available at Vodafone Qatar’s e-shop and at the Company’s newly opened retail store in Doha Festival City. Vodafone Qatar is also offering free door-to-door delivery of every Vive Cosmos ordered. Customers can request this service at www.vodafone.qa/delivery.
