Let’s begin first with that new headset. It’s reportedly a standalone VR headset known as the Vive Movement and is meant to be a media consumption machine “with entry to some informal gaming,” Protocol says. Nevertheless, it gained’t ship with controllers and will probably be much less highly effective than the Oculus Quest 2, Protocol stories. The Vive Movement 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 Movement” tagline.
The brand new metaverse area is seemingly known as Viveport Verse. In line with a site about the service (which was dwell as of publishing this text), you’ll be capable of make your personal 3D avatar and discover “quite a lot of occasions,” however the area may even have an “NFT Showroom” and user-generated content material “out there quickly.” You seemingly gained’t want a VR machine to go to Vivepoint Verse, although; the web site says it will likely be appropriate with desktop gadgets, laptops, cellular gadgets, tablets, and VR headsets.
We’ve collected screenshots of the Viveport Verse web site within the gallery under, within the occasion that HTC closes entry to it.
It’s unclear how this new Viveport Verse area would differ from the enterprise-focused Vive Sync expertise.
