HTC Now has over 100,000 Weekly Users On Viveport

This week is the 1-year anniversary of the HTC Vive shipping to buyers. The hardware HTC and Valve shipped should be acknowledged for enabling big VR rooms, solid tracking, and giving developers the tools they needed to dive deeper into a new medium. Likewise, HTC is trying to make it easy to jump into VR for consumers with payment plans for the headset itself as well as a subscription plan for its Viveport store. These efforts could dramatically lower the barrier to entry for buyers while giving developers a new source of income and exposing buyers to new types of content when they might not be willing to shell out the cash to buy a title outright on Steam. In case you’re unfamiliar, Viveport runs alongside Valve’s Steam offering as a second place with which to get content for Vive. While Steam is a great place to buy games, HTC leadership is honing Viveport to focus on different types of content. According to Rikard Steiber, president of Viveport and senior vice president of VR at HTC, Viveport is seeing 100,000 unique active users each week use the service, offering us our first window into the size of its user base. “The month number is obviously much larger,” Steiber said. While HTC is also rolling out Viveport M for some mobile users in China, we clarified that the figure shared of 100,000 users does not include mobile users.
