HTC & Valve have already stated the Vive and associated software such as SteamVR will be released before the end of 2015.
For those people waiting on every word from Oculus for a release date, this is awesome news. Finally we have a release date for a consumer Virtual Reality device.
Perhaps even better news, the end of the year is apparently November according to Valve's updated web site:
This November, we're bringing everything that makes the PC great—the best games, the biggest communities, and the most exciting technologies—to new destinations.
Are you excited for the HTC Vive? Perhaps you will hold out for the Oculus Rift consumer version (CV1)?
