This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 17%. (I'm a bot)


HTC has officially revealed the Vive Focus, its all-in-one VR headset.

It should be the first standalone six-degrees-of-freedom VR headset to see release, though HTC isn't saying exactly when it'll be available.

The Vive Focus uses a somewhat simple-looking three-degrees-of-freedom controller with a similar trackpad to the larger Vive devices.

The headset's design is unusual, taking cues from both PlayStation VR and HTC's own Vive Deluxe Audio Strap, and it comes in a bright shade of blue.

HTC has only announced plans for the Vive Focus in China just yet, and even then there aren't any details on pricing or a release date.

If you were holding out for that Vive-branded standalone Google Daydream headset there's bad news - HTC and Google have cancelled their plans to bring it to the US. Lenovo's Daydream standalone is still in the works, according to Google VR VP Clay Bavor, though we haven't heard much about it since it was announced in May. Bavor says to expect more information "Soon."
