The news has jumped today, we do not know if before time, the fact is that it is already known that Valve’s HMD will be manufactured by HTC and it is called Re Vive. It has a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 Hz, coming with two controllers one for each hand. It will be available in the spring for developers.
No doubt the news has been a bombshell. This viewer has, it seems, two screens of 1200×1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. It has two external sensors for absolute positioning, which will collect our position in a square of around 5×5 meters. These sensors will also collect the position of two controls, one for each hand, which, we assume, will work in a similar way to Sixense STEM. It will have a headphone output integrated into the viewer and will be available in the spring in a developer version, and commercially for everyone by the end of the year.
For now we know that The Gallery will be one of the first games compatible with it, although in the case of Valve and SteamVR, it is assumed that they will announce some more this week during the GDC, which is presented as the most interesting in recent years, since it seems clear that nVidia will also present its own HMD. Will it be a good time for Oculus to announce the release date of the commercial version?.
