VRFocus spoke to Vice President HTC Vive, Europe, Peter Frølund regarding the LG virtual reality (VR) headset and LG’s entry into the VR industry.
Mr. Graylin had the following to say; “We will continue to work with Valve, our relationship won’t change. We welcome new companies to the VR landscape. We want to be a thought leader. What you’ve seen today and at CES demonstrates that – and there’s more coming – but VR needs more companies in the market.”
This of course follows the announcement that LG are demonstrating their own new head mounted display (HMD) unit in collaboration with Valve which is being displayed at the Valve booth at GDC this week.
There had already been some speculation as to if this meant HTC departure from it’s partnership with Valve or at least the end of HTC’s exclusivity.
VRFocus will continue to bring you further information on this topic as we get it.
