Ever since Valve and HTC announced their partnership on the Vive headset, I've been itching to try it, but it has eluded me for now. Now we have news that developers will be able to secure themselves the SteamVR headset for free, at least for now.


Valve spokesperson Doug Lombardi talked with Ars Technica, where he said that the developer kits will be given to developers for free in its early stages, with developers of any size able to sign up. The developer kits will begin shipping in the spring, with a retail availability of later in the year.
