After a brief explosion around 2016, VR quickly faded into the background. It’s not that it went away, but some of the hype died down. This started to change beginning with the Meta Quest 2 launch in 2020. More recently, Sony announced its PSVR 2, and then there was Meta late last year with the new Quest Pro. Not one to be left out, HTC Vive XR Elite is here to take on the Quest Pro.

I had the opportunity to test out the HTC Vive XR Elite recently at CES 2023, and these are my quick impressions.
