And we have another VR HMD contender in the rings folks. LG have announced they will be showing off their own VR HMD at GDC with Valve.
Valve's official statement:
QuoteLG Electronics will unveil its first VR HMD prototype at this year’s GDC in San Francisco, CA. Being shown in Valve’s GDC booth, the LG HMD prototype is designed to deliver a high fidelity, next generation VR experience.
During the show, LG will be meeting with developers to collect feedback and impressions as part of its effort to define the first commercial units. Pricing, launch dates, and territories will be announced at a later date.
Valve developer Chet also confirmed it will be SteamVR compatible:
Which means it should hopefully work on Linux too, but no word on that yet.
I wonder how many others will start pushing into the VR space. More headsets means more competition which is healthy for us as the people buying it could end up seeing prices being pushed down.
