Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Microsoft announces new VR headsets for Windows 10, starting at $299

Screen type? refresh rate? FoV? Resolution?

None of that is known yet. All MS announced was the starting price point, the list of partners (HP, Dell, Lenovo, Asus, and Acer), and that all of these will have internal tracking systems.

Edit: Acer was working on a 210 degree FOV VR headset, but I don't know if that is the same headset Acer is working on with Microsoft. I don't think it is.

That's pretty cool. I'm all in for the VR phase and that price is really seductive. Maybe they can incorporate it into Xbox One and revitalize Kinect the way Sony revitalized Move.

Better work with Scorpio ( I assume they would)

That's a great starting price point. Hopefully these headsets will be compatible with Scorpio. I'm betting they will be.

They said these headsets will work with all Win10 devices, so Scorpio definitely will be supported

Good price.

I am on the other side of my sig....am I warm or cold?  

Marco....

that's a good starting price, I just wonder what kind of specs you get for that

and I hope their inside-out tracking proofs to be as robust as for example the vives laser-based tracking

It has an RX 470.... I'm amazed that can apparently do VR, it certainly won't do it well for long...

The CPU is awful too... FX-4350..... :|

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

I would be interested in an ASUS Headset without the need for external sensors.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

That's cool and all, but without specs there's nothing you can really say about it.
