Let’s begin first with that new headset. It’s reportedly a standalone VR headset referred to as the Vive Move and is meant to be a media consumption system “with entry to some informal gaming,” Protocol says. Nevertheless, it received’t ship with controllers and might be much less highly effective than the Oculus Quest 2, Protocol studies. The Vive Move will reportedly be introduced at HTC’s October 14th event, which might make sense, as HTC is promoting the event with the “Go together with the Move” tagline.
The brand new metaverse area is seemingly referred to as Viveport Verse. In line with a site about the service (which was reside as of publishing this text), you’ll have the ability to make your individual 3D avatar and discover “quite a lot of occasions,” however the area can even have an “NFT Showroom” and user-generated content material “obtainable quickly.” You seemingly received’t want a VR system to go to Vivepoint Verse, although; the web site says it is going to be suitable with desktop gadgets, laptops, cell gadgets, tablets, and VR headsets.
We’ve collected screenshots of the Viveport Verse web site within the gallery beneath, within the occasion that HTC closes entry to it.
