Microsoft Confirms: Xbox One VR Headset Incoming

Microsoft has also partnered with other OEM's like Lenovo, Asus, HP and Dell for creating Mixed Reality headsets which will pair with Windows Mixed Reality-ready PCs. "Our plan is to bring mixed reality content to the Xbox One family of devices, including Project Scorpio, in 2018", he wrote. VR experiences have already established themselves in the gaming world thanks to the likes of Rift, Vive, and Playstation VR, but the augmented side is also with its own perks as proven by the popularity of Pokemon Go.

Microsoft, in an announcement made on Thursday, has launched its Xbox Live Creators Program.

We'll keep an eye out for what developers build with their new mixed reality Windows headsets.

Microsoft is about to launch its more powerful version of the Xbox One now designated Project Scorpio, but there are still some mysteries surrounding it including how much it will costs. The company will probably offer some more information regarding the Mixed Reality for Windows at the Build conference to be held in the middle of May this year.

"Our engineers and developers are actively continuing to work to resolve the issue causing some members to have problems finding previously-purchased content or purchasing new content", Microsoft has confirmed.

Microsoft's new headsets aim to share the same software as HoloLens, but without being see-through.

There is also no extra equipment needed as the headset has inside-out tracking so no external sensors!

Acer is the hardware company behind the headset, and while we only got to gaze upon it from outside a glass case, it's still a pretty awesome looking bit of kit. "HoloLens is focused on task workers and enterprise".

Xbox head Phil Spencer appeared on IGN's Unlocked this week and spoke about Microsoft's new Xbox Game Pass, E3, and Project Scorpio.

Kipman demoed what is said to be the prototype of the Xbox mixed reality headset. The headset comes with native display refresh rate up to 90Hz and has built-in audio out and microphone support through 3.5mm jack. Hopefully, we will see these limits rise over time, the same way MS has dedicated more of the Xbox One's resources to games as the console has matured.
