HTC has announced an upgrade feature and functionality to their current existing marketplace called Viveport VR during CES 2018. This new feature will allow users to shop for their favorite VR games in the virtual world.
“Viveport is moving to a VR first experience model, and with the all-new Viveport VR, we are changing the way consumers discover, experience and acquire VR content,” said Rikard Steiber, president, Viveport. “Until now, there has not been a shopping and browsing experience that takes advantage of the full functionality of VR. Available in early access today, Viveport VR increases interaction with content and offers developers a preview that showcases the quality of their titles and experiences.”
HTC has stated that Viveport VR will be like going to an airport where you can preview VR games. Unlike any other platform, you’ll be able to demo VR games in the VR world through the Vive headset prior to purchasing a title. This makes it convenient as you’ll be able to get a little snippet of the game to see if it is worth the price and download.
Viveport VR is available in Early Access for you to try out. It will be a part of the currently existing Viveport Subscription model.
