HTC is cook­ing up a new way to buy Vive ap­pli­ca­tions

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE CES 2017 -

HTC used CES 2017 to pro­mote a new sub­scrip­tion plan that it in­tends to launch in Q2, of­fer­ing a steady stream of Vive-com­pat­i­ble con­tent – games, movies and ap­pli­ca­tions – for a set price. In­ter­est­ingly, the games and apps will be de­liv­ered via Vive­port, HTC’s first­party app store, rather than through Steam, which will no doubt present an an­noy­ance for PC own­ers ac­cus­tomed to keep­ing all of their con­tent in one place. HTC hasn’t yet re­vealed how much a sub­scrip­tion will cost, but it’s fol­low­ing the es­tab­lished model of of­fer­ing a free trial, with signups now open at www.vive­port.com.
