This week, we have started shipping the Vive Developer Editions. This first wave includes a wide range of developers from major movie studios, triple A developers, to small indie teams working on their first title. We will continue to ship to additional developers through the spring and summer. This will allow developers to target the same system consumers will have in their homes later this year. Remember, while you will need to receive a Developer Edition to post in the Steam VR Hardware Group, the entire community is invited to read and follow along with the developers as they create great virtual reality experiences.”
