HTC and Valve begin shipping Vive headsets, unboxing videos appear

Developers are beginning to receive their Valve/HTC Vive VR headsets

HTC and Valve have started shipping developers their Vive headset, with the studio behind 'The Gallery: Six Elements' receiving their Vive developer kit in the mail and throwing together an unboxing video that we've embedded below.

In the box you'll get the Vive headset, two Lighthouse base stations, and two wireless Steam VR controllers. It's an exciting kit, as you get much more than you do in the Oculus Rift developer kit. Valve and HTC should begin shipping the Vive headset to consumers later in the year, most likely after the launch of the Steam Box, Steam Machines, Steam Controller and hopefully... Half-Life 3.
