    Subscription service for Oculus/Samsung?

    I saw earlier this week that HTC announced they will be releasing a Viveport subscription service so that we don't actually have to buy games to play them. I think this is a brilliant idea and would love to see Oculus and Samsung announce a similar service for owners of the GearVR. There is so much content out there, why not let us pay a set monthly price to have access to all?

    It's worth noting that HTC's subscription won't cover the whole of Viveport, and that each game has to be opted-in.

    Yes, but interesting both from a consumer perspective, and as a developer as well. It almost sounded like the catalog may rotate a bit, which could be a good idea, as many people only play a game for a short period of time (but perhaps quite a bit in that period). Could be a good way to try out games, and if there is something you want to continue to play past x months, you buy it.

    Ohh, I like that idea! I wonder if it will actually be possible though...
