HTC is cooking up a new way to buy Vive applications
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.
