New Perks Coming to Viveport Subscription Service … For a Price (Increase)
Viveport, the HTC Vive's global app store, is adding new benefits for subscribers next month, the company announced today. Starting March 22nd, subscribers will get exclusive promotions and discounts every month. To celebrate, the service is sending a free VR title to all current members. It says it will also add more perks in the future as the service grows.
"Viveport Subscription has gained incredible momentum and traction among consumers as well as developers,” said Rikard Steiber, President of Viveport.“Our subscription catalog has grown to over 375 titles, which is more than 600 percent increase since we started the service. We are always looking to support the developer ecosystem and with the subscription increase, developers will now be earning an additional ~22% from their title in the Subscription catalog. Our exclusive promotions on select titles will also give developers another avenue for marketing their games to our most engaged audience."
But, this all comes with a catch. The monthly sub price is increasing from $6.99 to $8.99. All current members, and those who sign up before March 22nd, will be locked in at the current price through at least the end of 2018.
