We now know why HTC delayed the Vive until April 2016, the team has been improving things behind the scenes, and today at the Vive Unbound developers forum in Beijing, China, HTC CEO Cher Wang said that two weeks ago, Valve and HTC made "a very, very big technological breakthrough" with the Vive.
This breakthrough led HTC to skip the original Vive headset, and ship the new one - missing the Q1 2016 window. Wang said: "We shouldn't make our users swap their systems later just so we could meet the December shipping date". Wang didn't talk much about the technological breakthrough but did tease that it would be unveiled at CES early next month.
