HTC has shared where consumers will be able to pick up the Vive virtual reality headset in the UK. The VR system is ready for pre-order at a number of participating high street retailers. The list of retailers include the likes of Dixons Carphone, Overclockers UK and Scan Computers.

Arriving in May, you'll be able to pop into your nearest participating store to put your name down for a unit from today, as well as take advantage of hands-on demo time. Here's the full list of retailers:

  • Currys PC World, Leeds (Birstall)
  • Currys PC World, Reading
  • Currys PC World, Tottenham Court Road
  • Overclockers UK, Newcastle-under-Lyme
  • Scan Computers International Ltd, Bolton

Each of the aforementioned stores will have a demonstration station ready to go for the public to interact with. Priced at £689 in the UK, it's an expensive investment, but well worth it if you're looking to take your media consumption to the next level. Be sure to check out the HTC website for more details surrounding availability in the UK.
