The HTC Vive is quickly become a major contender in the Virtual Reality headset space and it hasn’t even been released yet. With a partnership between Valve and HTC, the HTC Vive headset already has some great hardware and software being developed as well as third-party companies building sensors and other goodies for it. Today one more company has announced support for the HTC Vive, which will definitely lend some extra power to the gaming aspect for the HTC Vivie.
Back near the end of March 2015 we reported on HTC and the fact that they would be offering developers a chance to apply for a free Vive Developer Edition virtual reality headset which they can use to develop games for. The only thing that developers were waiting for was to have HTC launch their official website that developers would be using to sign-up for the headset.
One of the upcoming VR headsets that has a lot of attention on it right now is the HTC Vive, a team effort between Valve and HTC. Well HTC is hoping to have developers signing up for a free HTC Vive headset ‘soon’, and by ‘soon’ the company is hoping to have things going by next week.

While the title may seem a bit sarcastic, or humorous depending on your sense of humor, no doubt a lot of people have been following what has been going on with OnLive over the past few days since rumors began that the company would suddenly be closing its door to massive lay-offs and it being bought out. Since late Friday, after all the dust settled, we knew more about the situation and the impending buy-out of the game streaming service.
Sony has dropped a couple of nuggets onto the world of mobile gaming today, specifically with regards to Android of course.

Some rather bitter news today for anyone who was looking forward to getting an HTC One X or an EVO 4G LTE Android phone. Both phones, which we have talked about recently, have had their first shipment held up by US Customs over a patent that they might be infringing upon that Apple owns.
The wait is almost over for HTC Sensation 4G owners on T-Mobile. The carrier has confirmed that Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 3.6 will be pushed to the Sensation 4G starting on May 16.
