    Seems that Valve may be handing over more of their support to HP than to HTC - as they have ploughed their own path going forward. Now with the off the ear audio, and the new tracking, this will place the new headset in a very competitive position, especially with the CV1 now discontinued, and the issues with the Rift-S. Though I wonder if they will push this new headset in Consumer as hard as they have been working in Enterprise?

    looks interesting. Probably the previously announced upgrade from HP. Working with Valve could be an interesting partnership in how it leverages against the Index.

    Really  not sure if its "leverage", the best analogy is like Mercedes working with Ford on sharing licensed tech. There is no real way that the Reverb G3 will compete with the Index unless they can cost reduce this version, and their plans for a Index-Lite have been dealt some really harsh cards in the current climate. This may be a way to generate revenue without having to do the thing they hate so much (manufacturer and support).  The bigger question has to be will HTC be happy to see this and do they have any recourse?

    Really interesting to see the specs and price. With so many complaints about Index price I'd be surprised if the price goes beyond $800...

    Looks like we're being flooded with Gen2 hmds these days.
