HTC will be launching a virtual reality app store called the HTC Viveport which is an alternative to the Steam catalog of Vive virtual reality. It was launched in China (where Stream is not popular as a platform) earlier this year. Now they are launching a beta version for a worldwide release.

Developers can register for the beta version on Vive’s Developers Portal Page. If you are a developer, you can register on its website and get your wares in Viveport. The platform will feature pay-to-download, in-app purchases, subscriptions, and more revenue generating opportunity.

The store will be available across multiple platforms, ranging from desktop, mobile app, and an in-VR catalog connected to Vive Home (which is a virtual environment created by HTC).

“We believe virtual reality is going to change the world,” says HTC Vive senior vice president Rikard Stelber. While Cher Wang, CEO of HTC said, “Our mission is to unleash human imagination from the limitations of reality, and Viveport will be an important cornerstone in democratizing access to the world’s most diverse selection of immersive experiences.”

Presently HTC Vive and Oculus VR are the primary and most popular virtually reality set available in the market. HTC’s Vive is a headset based on Steam which is quite a hit among gamers. So we guess HTC wants the Stream to be available to everyone in the world but since that is not possible they are coming up with its very own VR app store. Echoing the sentiment, Rikard Steiber, Senior Vice President of Viveport said, “We believe equal access to virtual reality experiences will make the world a better place; enhancing our daily lives and the way we connect with everything. An important goal for the Viveport team is to enable developers to reach a global audience and grow their business.”
