Starting things off this week, we hope you were able to snag some great experiences from the Steam VR Fest! There were some fantastic deals for some really great titles! If you haven't already, check out our posts from last week where we listed our top deals and wrote a few reviews for our top titles.
If you haven't heard the news, Pico, the VR subsidiary of TikTok owner ByteDance, is preparing to launch a new headset. This week at the FCC, filings for a Pico 4 headset were spotted, illustrating the company's plans to introduce two different versions of their headset (someone seems to be copying Meta), which include a higher priced 'Pro' model.
The headsets are both standalone devices (again, is this a Meta copy or killer?), with the 'Pro' model including face and eye tracking functionality, according to the documents in the FCC filings. Also spotted was the internal code name for the headset, which appears to be Phoenix. The headsets are planned to be running Android Q, making use of a Qualcomm processor. ByteDance has yet to make a public comment on the filings so there are few additional details besides what has been gained from the heavily redacted FCC filings.
Partial device photos show both controllers and the headset itself will be all white with the controllers being a heavily revised version of their Pico 3 Neo line of devices. This all comes as ByteDance boosts Pico's sales around the world, with a major hiring spree in the United States over the last year. We will share any additional details as we find them out, so stay tuned to our news blog!
