Today at the GDC 2018, HTC confirmed its release of Vive Focus, which is the first 6DOF stand-alone VR headset to be commercially available. It is supposed to hit the shelves later in 2018. Vive Focus developer kits are also being made available to developers that have registered for it worldwide through the Vive developer portal.

Vive Focus is based on Vive Wave, the open VR platform and tool set. Vive Focus has the already acclaimed Viveport as its content platform and is made in a way so as to surely appeal to a wide array of mass market audiences. It is also hoped to be of interest to commercial/enterprise users who want to deploy stunning VR experiences in a convenient and portable form.

In addition to the aforementioned services, developers in China bringing content to Viveport either via Vive Focus or PC-based Vive are to receive a whopping 100% revenue share from the title sales and Viveport subscription between the time period of April and September 2018. Viveport is undoubtedly the best platform for VR developers. This opportunity is a way to empower the developers to create the most amazing VR content, regardless of what kind of hardware device.

The Japanese company hosted its ceremonial 2nd annual Viveport Developer Awards (VDAs) at the event. Here the five first-place winners were each awarded $50,000, and the five second-place winners were each given $20,000. The categories and winners are listed on the official website of VIVE, and all of these are already made available on Viveport.
