The HTC Vive has been on the market since April 5 of this year. In the three months that the hardware has been shipping, HTC has managed to catch up to customer orders and launch a business edition of the Vive HMD, which includes commercial licensing. Now the company has launched an official accessories store where you can purchase replacement parts and upgrades for your Vive.

HTC’s Vive accessories store is supposed to be for “cables, controllers, headphones and more,” but there isn’t much of a selection yet. The webstore opened with but a few components to purchase. You can pick up replacement face cushions, which come in packages of two. The narrow and wide cushions are both available. They will set you back $24.99.

HTC has also listed replacement nose rests on the store. A set of three will cost you $12.99. These are also available in wide and narrow sizes.

The only other accessory that you can purchase right now is the USB extension cable that was curiously omitted from the retail Vive package. We noted in our Vive review that the cable was included with the Vive Pre, but it was missing from the retail Vive. This cable has a proprietary shape that allows it to be plugged into the accessory port inside the Vive HMD. With this cable, you can use a USB headset, for example.

Over time, you’ll be able to purchase replacement controllers and other components.

The Vive Accessories Store is part of the HTV Vive website..
