“I have some issues with VR — it’s isolating and I think of games as a communal, kind of together experience. We’re responding to what our customers are asking for and… nobody’s asking for VR,” Spencer said. “The vast majority of our customers know if they want a VR experience, there’s places to go get those. We see the volumes of those on PC and other places.”

“I think we might get there [eventually],” Spencer concluded. “But yeah, that’s not where our focus is.”

So ultimately Microsoft is not focusing on VR right now, as it is still too niche of an experience.  

Is this a bad idea on MS part?

On the one hand, it is absolutely true that VR still has a small userbase.

On the other hand, it means MS is not likely to be  a major part of the VR market if it were to mature.
