HTC today announced that Viveport Infinity, the upcoming Netflix-style VR game & app subscription service, will be available for $13 a month, or $99 annually starting on April 2nd. If you subscribe now though, it could be a lot cheaper than that.

Viveport Infinity boasts unrestricted access to the platform’s subscription library of 600+ apps and games, supporting HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets, as well as a minority of titles  supporting Vive Wave standalone headsets.

The company is promising a number of membership benefits to free the credit card from your wallet, such as weekend deals on select titles, free title giveaways, and monthly coupons. A 10% store coupon is said to arrive to every member at the beginning of each month.

The company will be offering the choice of either a monthly Infinity subscription at $13, or a prepaid annual subscription for $99—bringing the effective monthly rate to $8.25. If you grab a standard subscription before the April 2nd cut-off date though, you’ll be paying significantly less under the old pricing structure until the end of 2019.

HTC is Giving Away 1 Month of Viveport Infinity for Free

Viveport’s standard subscription costs a monthly fee of $9, and gives users a choice of five games per month from the pool of eligible subscription games. Standard subscriptions can also be purchased in prepaid bundles of 3, 6, or 12 months for $20, $40 or $80 respectively.

Note: Viveport Infinity doesn’t give you access to all games on Viveport; individual developers must first authorize to include their game in the service, meaning some of our favorites like Superhot VR, Moss, and Arizona Sunshine aren’t available under the subscription service. You should also note that fan favorites such as Skyrim VR, Fallout 4 VR, Job Simulator, and Beat Saber aren’t on Viveport at all.

While there’s plenty of chaff to bypass too, there are also more than a few really great games that will immediately justify the price of a single month, such as:

  • Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs
  • Apex Construct
  • Fantastic Contraption
  • Island 359
  • Knockout League
  • Obduction
  • Prison Boss VR
  • Pixel Ripped 1989
  • Racket: Nx
  • Tilt Brush
  • Transpose
  • Windlands
  • Windlands 2

You can also try out Viveport Infinity for free for a month if you’re still not convinced.

In a bid to attract more developers to the platform, HTC is increasing developer revenue share on Viveport from 70/30 to 80/20. From April 1st through the end of 2019, the revenue share scheme will also apply to Viveport Infinity titles too.

The platform will also feature a sale to celebrate, putting over 100 on sale from April 2nd – April 7th.

    I really want to hear what kind of a deal the developers are getting out of this. How much money are they making on this service as opposed to on Steam?

    • FireAndTheVoid

      I don’t see the incentive to list an in-demand title on this service. If I were a dev, I would only list my product on this service if it weren’t selling well on Steam and I was hoping to get some revenue, no matter how small, for my development efforts. With a flood of weak titles, the few strong titles are probably subsidizing the weaker ones.
