MWC 2015 - HTC has surprised the world, giving me goosebumps in the meantime, by announcing at Mobile World Congress that they've partnered up with Valve on a VR headset.

HTC's new Vive headset will feature a room-scale experience, features 70 sensors, full 360-degree tracking where you can walk around your environment, 90Hz refresh rate, and it will come with two wireless controllers. HTC's Vive headset will be compatible with Valve's SteamVR service, too.

We don't know the resolution of the display yet, but I could guarantee we're looking at a minimum of 1920x1080 (or 1080p). Now, HTC has three letters in its name - 3 letters - Half-Life 3 confirmed?!?!
