HTC Vive’s secret sauce is casual gaming

HTC Vive isn't a small investment in time, gadgetry, or of course money. You'd be forgiven for assuming that, with its huge box full of headset, controllers, motion-tracking base stations, and all the many cables and power adapters that keep them connected and running, playing with Vive would be a similarly involved process. Still, you'd be wrong.

HTC Vive Review – the Holodeck you always wanted

Virtual Reality is finally coming of age, and with Vive, HTC and Valve believe they have the finest and most flexible interpretation of next-generation gaming. A surprise announcement just a year ago, Vive aims to out-immerse Oculus' Rift by spreading VR throughout the room, rather than just putting it in a headset. The SlashGear team has been living with not one, but three Vive systems: read on for our verdict.

HTC 10 teased to have the best BoomSound yet

HTC may have had a few trips and falls for the past years, but at least it has acknowledged its users' biggest complaints, somewhat. By claiming that the upcoming HTC 10 (or HTC One M10) will finally have a compelling camera, the company partially admits that its previous cameras, despite the hype, have failed expectations.

HTC acknowledges Vive pre-order auto-cancellations, fix coming

Virtual reality is off to a great start. Well, almost. While both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR have started their journey to consumer's hands, both have also been beset by delivery and pre-order issues. Oculus has just recently released a statement apologizing for delays in shipping, dangling the promise of free shipping to appease discontented buyers. Now it's HTC's turn to say sorry. Addressing reports of pre-order auto-cancellations, the company promised it is resolving to fix the issue but offers no recompense, since, after all, these are still just pre-orders.

Leaks and rumors have become more or less a fact of life in some industries, like the showbiz and, of course, the mobile device sector. Sometimes, however, there are just some leaks that might be so bad that you wished they weren't true. And then the product's creator comes along to confirm it.

But more than just rendering for the sake of rendering, the images reflect the HTC community's desire for a fresh new champion.

Hoping not to let the rumors die, HTC has just tweeted its latest teaser, promising its loyal fans of a camera, or cameras, that they will finally be proud of.
