107 Games Revealed Ahead of HTC Vive Preorder Launch 51

SlappingOysters writes: Preorders open today for the HTC Vive virtual reality headset and while the device has been well-received by critics, little is known about the games coming to the device. We know that Job Simulator, Fantastic Contraption and Tilt Brush will be bundled in with the HTC Vive for those who preorder it, but Finder has discovered a further 104 games that have also been earmarked by their creators as coming to the device. For those considering a preorder, the site also provides a useful HTC Vive vs. Oculus Rift vs. PlayStation VR comparison table.

  • This list makes me want to wait. I will have to do more research, but I don't see anything really exciting here. This looks like the list of 300+ channels you get with a cheap dishTV subscription.

      Yeah, one single awesome game could sell me on one of these VR platforms, but hundreds of mediocre games won't. Unfortunately nothing on that list immediately strikes me as being likely to be that one awesome game.

        With nearly 900$ price tag, it should be helluva game for me to jump on it.
        Maybe if star citizen delivers.
        Oh, and then I'd probably need to spend another 500$ on AMD Fury Nano...

      • Which is strange given Valve's backing. CS-GO would sell a lot of systems.

    i.e., a few old Valve titles and a bunch of low-budget crapware?

      Honestly, that's not far off. There are some major games in there - more than you'd think - but also a bunch of minor games you've probably never heard of. And then there's a bunch of stuff that's in alpha/beta (i.e. Early Access) and will be for some time, but still gets on the list.

      VR's a bit of a gold rush right now, so everyone is eager to claim their stake. The issue right now is that there's no issuing authority here, so anyone can claim

  • I thought VR had a pretty good chance this time around when the Oculus first came out but now everyone and their mom's releasing a VR headset and it's gonna saturate what was probably gonna be a pretty small market to begin with. I hope i'm wrong but I imagine it'll pitter out after a couple years like the first VR headsets years ago.
    • Have they fixed the nausea issue yet, I know that's less of an issue than the older ones were, but apparently long term use still makes you start feeling a bit green around the gills. Until they fix that 100% it will always be a bit of a gimmick, once you can wear it comfortably for long durations you can kiss the old monitor(s) goodbye.

    As this HTC device has some sort of agreement with Valve - will it work with steam OS and/or linux?

      Yes, this is how you get VR on Linux. Valve / HTC announced support for Linux from day 1 for the Vive.

    Create a virtual anime girlfriend sex game with various skins/models of popular anime characters over the last 20 years and sell it with that?

    We only want this for anime porn right?

      Not everyone reading slashdot is a paedophile.

  • Tilt Brush

    That seems like a very weird game to publicize for virtual reality this early on.

    ...

    Oh, Tilt Brush. Apparently I read it wrong the first time.
