Microsoft promised to bring cheap VR headsets to the market way back in 2015, and we’ve only been excited with info on some models ever since.
Now they’re finally beginning to happen. At an event in San Francisco these days, the corporate proclaimed you’ll be able to pre-order any of Microsoft’s partner headsets today, most of which can arrive on October 17 (with one exception). That’s the same day Microsoft is dropping the Windows 10 Fall Creator’s update, which finally brings the Microsoft’s mixed reality hub to the people.
Those models are of Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Samsung. All of them hover around $400-$500, as well as Microsoft’s Oculus-like mixed reality controllers, or $300-$400 without them. You’ll be able to conclude a lot of concerning costs and also the options of every individual headset here.
The Samsung headset looks significantly fascinating, as the only headset with OLED displays and ‘premium’ AKG headsets. You’ll need to wait longer for that one – it launches on November 6.
Microsoft’s has two main benefits over the competition it’s hoping to leverage. Its partner headsets don’t want an external camera to trace six degrees of movement, for one, and that they will run on lower specification machines – even integrated graphics. And although Microsoft is accenting games to start out, it’s getting ready for a world wherever mixed reality may be our primary method of interacting with computers.
