HTC has launched its Viveport online VR app store to the rest of the world, after previously making it available only in China. It gives owners of the HTC Vive virtual reality headset another way to browse and purchase apps and games. Before today, the only other place for Vive owners to get apps was via Valve's Steam store.
HTC's blog has the info on what's included in Viveport:
- Viveport Premieres: Experience the best new and updated content from top VR creators.
