Så rykker HTC i offensiven på PC markedet af VR ved at deres Viveport nu understøtter Oculus Rift. Her er pressemeddelelsen:
As part of Viveport’s commitment to connect content creators to global audiences, we’re excited to announce that Viveport now supports Oculus Rift compatible titles. Developers can opt-in their titles to display as Oculus Rift compatible from today, with the full consumer launch on September 4th.
Adding support for Oculus Rift doubles the potential audience for all Viveport published titles, and opens Viveport Subscription – the best value in VR – to Oculus Rift consumers. Viveport Subscription allows subscribers to experience up to five titles at a time, starting with a free 14-day trial, and continuing after that with one low monthly price.
With almost 500 titles in the Viveport Subscription library, we’re proud to curate a diverse and engaging range of experiences that appeal to a wide audience. Recent additions and all-time bestsellers in Viveport Subscription include Seeking Dawn, Tilt Brush, Pixel Ripped 1989, Shooty Fruity, A-Tech Cybernetic VR, theBlu and Knockout League. We’re always happy to welcome new developers, with marketing support and promotion for selected titles.
As well as offering a huge range of available games and apps, Viveport Subscription has also proved popular with VR consumers who are looking to ‘try before they buy’. A Viveport Subscription member choosing five of the six titles shown below for either a 14-day free trial or a month of paid subscription could save almost $140 on retail prices!
“By adding support for Oculus Rift, we’re doubling the potential user base for Viveport developers,” said Rikard Steiber, President of Viveport. “Viveport continues to offer the most opportunities for developers to monetize their VR content. From Viveport and Viveport Subscription, to availability on Amazon and in Viveport Arcade, we’re going to continue to expand and reach the largest global audience possible on developers’ behalf.”
Developers can start opting in on Viveport to support Oculus Rift today. In many cases, existing builds that have hardware support for Oculus Rift via OpenVR are ready for this update. In the Developer Console, Oculus Rift is now available under ‘Compatible headsets’ in the ‘Viveport Listing’ tab. To opt-in a title, simply check the Oculus Rift box and create a production release under the Submit tab.
