Fractured VR: Will exclusive titles kill VR before it takes off?

Fractured VR: Will exclusive titles kill VR before it takes off?

Exclusive titles are nothing new to the world of gaming. Man fan-favorite games are only available on one console or another. One of the biggest reasons for this is due to the fact that they're first-part titles, meaning that Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo is behind the game's development. We all accept these exclusives, because that's just the way it's always been, and each company has the right to use their first-party titles to sell their hardware. But now this issue is affecting a new area of gaming: VR.

HTC One S9 looks like the One M9, acts like a One A9

HTC One S9 looks like the One M9, acts like a One A9

HTC decided to stir things up a bit by giving the HTC 10 a makeover. While the end result does have merits, its previous flagship design might have enchanted loyal followers for years.

HTC Desire 830 design, specs leak: dual front speakers

HTC Desire 830 design, specs leak: dual front speakers

HTC may have ditched the "One" branding and its advantageous dual front-facing speakers in the latest HTC 10 flagship, but that practice will live on its the OEM's mid range line. Of course, they won't be called "Ones". On the heels of the HTC 10's debut comes a leak of what is identified as the HTC Desire 830. Unambiguously a Desire in design, the mid-range smartphone is shown bearing front-facing speakers and, save for a few core components, might have specs that give it a more premium flair as well.

HTC 10 and LG G5 aren’t USB Type-C compliant, says Google engineer [update]

Benson Leung is someone that we've talked about before. He's the Google engineer that rounded up all of the USB Type-C cables and put them through a series of tests to see if they're up to snuff.

HTC 10 Review

HTC 10 Review
