HTC also took gold in the Gaming Hardware category with its Vive VR headset. CNET's Scott Stein wrote of the headset in his review, "Vive is the best virtual-reality experience you can have right now, thanks to its motion controls and room-scale tracking. It's the closest thing to having a holodeck in your home."
