NVIDIA planning to announce standalone VR headset at the Game Developers Conference, likely to reveal at event March 3rd
Coming on the heels of Valve’s announcement yesterday sources at NVIDIA have told the intrepid reporters at VRFocus that they will be announce their own VR, which might “possibly be named Titan VR.” For those at home keeping track that means we will have Oculus showing off the Rift, Sony showing off the Morpheus, Valve showing off the Steam VR, Razer showing off the OSVR, countless people showing off different iterations of mobile phone VR headsets, and now NVIDIA… yeah it’s sufficed to say VR will definitely be having a strong (wait for it…) ‘presence’ this year at GDC.
According to the report the only other details that we know now are that the team behind the project is the same one behind NVIDIA’s SHIELD tablet.
Earlier this month, the NVIDIA team sent out invites to an event on March 3rd that promised to show something that was “more than 5 years in the making” and that what they plan to show will “redefine the future of gaming.” This is most likely when we will get our first glance at the new HMD.
UploadVR will be in attendance at the NVIDIA event, and will be bringing you in the moment updates on Twitter. We will monitor this story as developments continue to come in.
