The Oculus Rift and HTC Vive have always been two extremes of a robust VR framework. However, that gap is being bridged by the efforts of HTC who have opened up Viveport to the users of the Rift headset.
For those who are not aware, Viveport is a global platform which functions as an app store for the users of the HTC Vive. Allowing subscriptions, it is where Vive users get games and other content which they enjoy on their headsets.
Starting today though, the exclusivity to Vive users will be cut and the same platform will be made open to the users of Rift. In fact, the Viveport has already been fitted with amazing titles that can be copped by Rift users right away.
On top of that, the platform will also allow Rift users subscribe to receive content compatible with their headsets in a deal that gives them freedom to choose five titles per month.
Coming at this point, Viveport thus look like a sweet deal for Rift users. Boasting a library of more than 1400 VR titles with no less than 500 of these available on subscription, users have access to a wide variety of content.
With more than 200 titles also available for Rift users at the time of writing, interested people can port to the platform and start anytime they so wish.
Before you start committing to the monthly subscription plans, Viveport allows you access to a free trial offer so you know just what you get. After that, you will be able to enjoy discounted offers on the subscription plans for now. There is no information on when this discount offer will lapse so you might want to get in on the pie soon.
