Acer finds a partner for VR

IT seems that it is not just HTC that can partner with a videogame developer for VR. Now Starbreeze and Acer have signed a letter of intent to form a joint venture for the StarVR Virtual Reality Head-Mounted Display. The two companies plan to cooperate on the design, manufacturing, promotion, marketing and sales of the StarVR HMD.
“Since our launch in June 2015, we have had an amazing start with StarVR. By partnering with Acer we shift gears yet again to firmly position us as the leader in top-end VR experiences. Acer is an excellent, experienced and prominent hardware partner that will accelerate us in realising and producing a high-definition, high fidelity VR headset,” said Bo Andersson Klint, Starbreeze CEO.
“Acer is thrilled to join forces with Starbreeze in bringing the StarVR head-mounted display to the market,” said Jason Chen, Acer Corporate President and CEO. “We are devoting R&D resources across multiple aspects of the VR ecosystem for a coherent and high-quality experience, while just last month Acer announced powerful desktops and notebooks fully-ready for StarVR.
Starbreeze launched StarVR at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in June 2015. In January 2016, Starbreeze unveiled its location based StarCade initiative, which introduces customers to premium VR experiences.
Starbreeze also premiered its first cinematic VR experience “Cockatoo Spritz” directed by Stephane Barbato in Cannes during the first week of the festival.
