Since the incredible wave of hype on which the hardware crested into our collective consciousness the conversation has become somewhat more muted, but make no mistake - VR is alive and well, and new games and hardware iterations are constantly materializing, slowly working the transformation from niche novelty to substantial mainstay.Part of the continued success of VR has blossomed out of non-VR applications. Fields like healthcare, where VR is helping to explore and map the human body and being used as a powerful teaching tool, or as diverse as tourism, architecture, or the automotive industry, have all found fascinating utility for VR technology.

Just a couple of weeks ago HTC was confidently rebutting claims about VR dying a huge and monstrous death with record sales of their Vive headset. Now, in a rather more desperate-seeming move, they’ve announced their Viveport subscription service will shortly be available on arch-rival headset, the Oculus Rift. Who’s winning the race for total VR domination? You decide! Set for a launch on September 4, HTC’s line is that, by opening up Viveport to Oculus peeps, it will double the potential audience for developers and players alike, giving everyone the ‘best in both worlds’ as handily signposted in the header image above. All developers need to do is choose to opt-in for Oculus Rift support, after which the Rift will then appear as a ‘compatible headset’ in the Viveport listing tab.

Back in 2016 we saw the launch of HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, however, HTC Vive was the virtual reality headset that was favored by gamers over Oculus Rift, however, things changes in February of 2018 as Oculus Rift surpassed HTC Vive. According to Steam hardware survey, Oculus Rift surpassed HTC Vive in terms of Steam users. According to the survey, 47.31% of Steam users are using the Oculus Rift while 45.38% of Steam users prefer HTC Vive. Also, this is the first time Oculus has surpassed Vive since its launch. However, don’t take this hardware survey as conclusive since Steam scans for hardware that is connected to the system.
