The #HTCVive headset was supposed to be released by late 2015, but that didn’t happen and the company postponed the launch to early 2016. Well, the headset has just made its way to the FCC for certification, hinting that a release isn’t far away.
The headset will pair with smartphones and provide an immersive experience to the users. While there are already a bundle of VR headsets from Samsung, Oculus and the likes, the Vive VR differentiates itself from the competition thanks to its partnership with game developer Valve, who will curate original content for the headset. Developer units are already being sent out by HTC, so the company is leaving no stone unturned in the development of this headset.
This means that the Vive will have a bundle of VR specific games on launch day, which should give it a significant boost compared to the competition. Unfortunately, this is merely an FCC certification for now and we still don’t know as to when the Vive VR will be actually released in the market.
