Vive! HTC and Valve’s partnership

by March 4, 2015 0 comments

Valve and HTC have partnered up to break their way into the virtual reality market. Vive, an Oculus Rift type headset, is using HTC’s groundbreaking technology and Valve’s extensive video game library to amplify the home entertainment experience.

Check out the trailer! (It gave me goose bumps)

The specs on this baby are pretty impressive. It has a 1200 by 1080 pixel screen for each eye, with a refresh rate of a crushing 90 frames per second. Omg Stacy! All this sounds great but what does this pretty lady have that the other VR helmets don’t? How about the ability to walk around in the virtual world!? Yeah, if you’re in a 15’x15′ room, you can get on up and strut your stuff digitally.

Now everybody knows that this is going to be out for twelve minutes before somebody uses it for Porn, but nothing has been announced for the VR spank bank, yet. On the other hand, the partnership with Valve should bring us a plethora of creative content through Steam, it’s an avenue where any indie or 3rd party developer can publish their vision to the public.
This sexy piece of tech should be available for purchase this Christmas season, but there will be a developer’s edition released in the spring. Some of the partners in place to help create content for this technology include HBO, LionsGate and FireProof Games. I tried to search around for some actual gameplay footage, but it was to no avail. I guess we’re waiting until spring to see if using the Vive is as boner-popping as the trailer.
