HTC Vive is one of the most comprehensive technologies ever created for a VR home system. On April 5th, the gadget celebrates one year anniversary since its official release. The company wants to share the excitement of its achievements with its clients first. Thus, users can expect lots of goodies and exclusive deals to enjoy this event to its fullest.
The Exclusive Deals Will be Followed by New Viveport Subscription
At one-year-old, HTC Vive wants to celebrate its success with the world by sharing lots of exclusive deals. Users can expect to receive $100 discount on HTC products and even free software. Moreover, all users of Vive products will automatically get the new production of Arcade Saga courtesy of Vive Studios free of charge.
The series of surprises continues with a much-awaited subscription for Viveport. The service will be launched on Wednesday. The price tag for the subscription will be incredibly low at $6.99. Once activated, users can enjoy five top-notch titles each month. By the end of the month, the customer can claim other five productions or stick with their favorite ones.
The Virtual Reality unit is also looking forward to developing a pop culture around its product in the realm of movies too. Last week, representatives announced a collaboration with Steven Spielberg. The director’s next work is called “The Oasis” where the action will take place in a VR dimension. The movie is scheduled for 2018, and it will most likely mark the presence of VR advantages in today’s society.
While Competition Stumbles, HTC Vive Embraces Evolution
Vive’s main competition is way behind HTC. For instance, Oculus Rift is dealing with an endless series of issues, such as low sales, executive replacements, and even lawsuits. Moreover, once a simple startup, Vive X began taking a larger shape than ever. The Vive accelerator plans to gather all the brilliant minds in the world and work together to accelerate the evolution of VR. The HTC accelerator called Vive X has already added last week a total of 33 new projects to its portfolio. This rounded up the number to 60 companies that received support to create a better ecosystem for VR products.
For the moment, VR products are perceived as expensive ways to entertainment. On Wednesday only, HTC will grant $100 price cut to new buyers to promote the utility of its Vive. Afterward, they will automatically receive a copy of the latest Vive Studio production, Arcade Saga, together with all the other Vive owners.
