HTC continues to expand support for the Viveport VR store. The company has now confirmed that all Windows Mixed Reality headsets will be able to access the Viveport VR store starting next month. Not only that, they will also be able to access its Viveport Infinity subscription service. This will provide a boost in the content available for Microsoft’s headset platform.
There are some 600 titles included in the Viveport Infinity subscription service and only 200 of them will be able to work on Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Nevertheless, it will be a welcome boost to the numbers for this platform.
Those who subscribe to the service will also be able to get premium content on the Viveport Video service. HTC is also encouraging Viveport developers to add support for Windows Mixed Reality to their creations if they want to cater to a larger audience. HTC’s Viveport VR platform is thus available to all of the notable virtual reality platforms.
It already has support for Valve’s Index and Oculus Rift headsets. This means that HTC can generate revenue from subscriptions and purchases made on its Viveport VR store even from customers who don’t own one of its Vive headsets. It’s a good play on part of the company.
