Valve ‘s VR headset Vive to be available widely in 2016
The commercial release of HTC and Valve’s Vive VR headset is not happening in 2015.
Valve and HTC have always said the Vive would launch in 2015. Unless you’re one of the lucky few however, you will have to wait until 2016.
Valve confirmed this in a press release saying, “HTC will offer the first commercial Vive units via a limited quantity of community and developer systems later this year, with larger quantities shipping in calendar Q1 2016.”
Of course Q1 2016 is also when the Oculus Rift will ship its commercial unit, which makes 2016 the year of virtual reality.
