Owners of HTC's Vive VR headset now have a new source for Vive-compatible software, thanks to the HTC Viveport app store. Viveport first opened for Chinese Vive owners all the way back in April, and is now available to users in over 30 countries around the world. The store offers a variety of VR content including games, educational, and creative titles.
The Viveport store appears to be an attempt to streamline the process of discovering and buying new software for the Vive headset. Many of the titles in Viveport are available through Steam already, but VR enthusiasts who don't want to sift through Valve's storefront will likely enjoy Viveport's more VR-focused presentation. Additionally, Viveport offers headsets, Vive-ready PCs, and "Vive installation services."
HTC has also announced Viveport Premieres, a series of titles available first through Viveport. Everest VR, Google Spotlight Stories' Pearl, Lifeliqe, and Stonehenge VR are part of the initial wave of Viveport Premieres titles. To celebrate Viveport's launch, HTC is running a 48-hour sale on certain titles. Popular experiences like theBlu and Mars Odyssey are just $1 during this window.
