HTC reveals virtual reality headset with Valve

The HTC Vive will be paired with wireless controllers and tracking technology to let wearers explore computer-generated environments by walking round their rooms.

The machines let wearers view computer-generated 3D environments to give them a sense of being there.

A test version of the kit will go on sale to developers shortly, followed by a public edition later this year.

It will compete with Facebook’s Oculus Rift and Sony’s Morpheus VR headsets.

The Vive headset was developed in conjunction with Valve, creators of such ground-breaking games as Portal and Half-Life. HTC manufactures some of the finest consumer electronics on the planet and Valve is an unrivaled architect of virtual worlds, so you know the collaboration is something special. Vive is powered by Valve’s SteamVR so plenty of games that take advantage of its capabilities will soon be available on the Steam service.

Do you think Mincraft is to violent?

Turkey’s government is looking into allegations that the popular computer game Minecraft is too violent, it’s reported.

The game is classified as suitable for children aged seven and over in much of Europe, and for those older than 10 in the United States. But Turkey’s family and social policies minister, Aysenur Islam, has ordered an investigation over suggestions that it promotes aggression, the Haberturk website reports. If it’s considered too violent, then the government could seek a nationwide ban, the website says. The move was prompted by a journalist who told Mrs Islam that players get points for killing other characters – including women – and asked what her ministry would be doing about it. The Pan European Game Information group, which assigns ratings to computer games, says Minecraft contains “non-realistic-looking violence towards characters which, although human, are not very detailed”.
