It is possible that, once the free units of HTC Vive Developers Edition have been sent to the developers approved by Valve, more units will be put on sale for everyone who wants to buy them this summer.
We found the news in Fortune. Peter Warman, CEO of the firm Newzoo, says that being the first to reach the high-level VR market will be a big boost to content creation, and that’s why Valve and HTC are going to send free development kits to approved developers. However, Jeff Gatis, executive director of global marketing at HTC, says that this summer, fans who do not want to wait for the commercial version of HTC Vive, will be able to get a Developers Edition. We assume that a firm of the stature of HTC, with years of manufacturing mobile devices behind it, will have no problems manufacturing the Vive in large quantities, so it is possible that the most impatient users can (can we?) living an early Christmas this summer.
