Last but not least, if you’ve been tempted by the Viveport Subscription service but haven’t yet tried it out Viveport is offering a 50 percent discount on the 3-Month Viveport Subscription where you can choose five titles per month from more than 400 available.
HTC Vive has continually looked at improving its service since the launch of Viveport in 2016. Some of the biggest changes have taken place over the last few months, with the introduction of Viveport VR as a new way for Viveport users to find and consume virtual reality (VR) content through the online store. Then last month HTC Vive increased the price of the Viveport Subscription, upping the monthly price from $6.99 USD to $8.99 for new users while current subscribers would see the cost stay the same for the rest of 2018.
The Viveport Developer Awards (VDAs) had its second event recently, with winners including The Gallery – Episode 2: Heart of the Emberstone, Gravity Sketch VR, OVERVIEW and REGENESIS Arcade DELUXE. And for fans of Ready Player One HTC Vive launched several experiences inspired by the film on Viveport, all available through the Oasis Beta app.
Expect plenty more news from HTC Vive as the year continues, especially with the up coming launch of HTC Vive Pro and Vive Focus later in the year, with VRFocus keep you updated with the latest announcements.
