Valve Partnering With HTC To Create VR Headset Vive – And It's Out This Year

So that Valve VR headset I was talking about earlier this week? It's been announced today as the Vive and the gaming super-power is partnering with mobile company HTC to bring it to consumers Holiday 2015.

The headset was announced in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress today. The device will be able to pair with SteamVR base stations to make motion control a possibility. It will of course be useable with a normal controller too though.

Not too much was given in the way of specs but the device will have two 1200 x 1080 screens that can produce up to 90 frames per second to reduce latency.

Here is a trailer for the device where it's confirmed for later this year.

I'm genuniely excited about this. I trust Valve with this and to finally have a majorly back VR headset within touching distance…the future is exciting.
