LG & Valve To Team Up For MEGA VR Headset

02 March 2017

It will be demonstrated at Valve's booth at GDC, and according to Valve it's designed "to deliver a high fidelity, next generation VR experience".

The game developer Valve confirmed to publication Road To VR that it will be using the SteamVR tracking technology to create a head mounted VR device for LG.

This is not the first time that the Korean company entered the virtual reality market. In 2016, it had released a 360-degree VR headset as an accessory for LG G5. We do not have any relationship with manufacturers, and all product choices are made by our editors, themselves.

LG has yet to share any specific details about the VR headset.

"This demo is the result of the experience and the valuable learnings we have accumulated during our relationship with Valve, a company that had the foresight to see the value of eye tracking at an early stage", said Christian Villwock, a director at SMI.

The news comes on the tail of Sony announcing that it sold more than 900,000 PlayStation VR headsets and Oculus saying that more than 5 million Samsung Gear VR headsets are in consumers' hands. Pricing and details on the headset's specs are now unavailable but will be announced at a later time.

LG may be about to launch a VR headset in cooperation with Valve, allegedly at the GDC 2017 (Game Developers Conference) which is already underway.
