In March, Valve announced a partnership with HTC around the Vive virtual reality headset. Today the firm announces the start of deliveries to developers who have pre-ordered their development kit.
A few months ago, HTC caused a sensation by announcing its own virtual reality headset, dubbed Vive, while specifying that the latter benefited from a partnership with Valve, the company behind the game broadcasting platform Steam.
Today, Valve indicates that the helmet equipped with 70 Steam VR compatible sensors is now sent to the developers who pre-ordered it. Independent developers with better known names, Valve says that the Vive helmet has already met with some pretty good success. This should speed up the development of titles in virtual reality.
