HTC hasn’t yet announced when it plans to release the Vive Cosmos system or how much the bundle, including the headset itself, and their cost. It is noteworthy that the company confirmed at CES, though, that it’s not a standalone system such as the Vive Focus. It will need a processing source to work. The HTC executives said at the event and suggested that it might be able to run on a PC or a smartphone. So it will provide more comfort and considered portable as compared to PC-only platforms.
