Valve Partnering With HTC for Steam VR Headset, Vive

HTC announced today that it will be partnering with Valve to create Vive, a virtual reality headset that is built with Valve's Steam platform in mind.

The device comes equipped with two 1200 x 1080 displays, each with 90 FPS refresh rates. As one would expect, it supports full 360 degree viewing and tracks head position using gyro sensors and accelerometers. A pair of controllers will be included with the device as well.

On top of that, the company will be partnering with companies like Google, Lionsgate, and HBO for non-gaming content. For an overview of Vive, check out the announcement trailer below.

A developer edition of Vive will be launching this spring. Let us know what you think of yet another competitor joining the VR headset market in the comments below.
