Really? That's interesting, I never really hear anything like that, Microsoft has to do a better job at advertising, if that is the case then they should make one compatible with Xbox consoles.
Indeed they need better marketing, i updated my post to show the Mixed reality steam vr drivers here https://store.steampowered.com/app/719950/Windows_Mixed_Reality_for_SteamVR/
The current first gen headsets are dirt cheap and have a much better tracking and res then the PSVR headset. And the new model here https://www8.hp.com/us/en/vr/reverb-g2-vr-headset.html is an even bigger upgrade. if MS got the price of that headset down to €249-€300 (Its currently like €500) and ported Hellblade VR, Skyrim VR, Fallout VR etc they would have a very good starting point to push sales.
Very nice. Yeah, I definitely think MS needs to do the following:
-Make WMR compatible with Xbox Series within about a year, year and a half.
-Release an Xbox branded WMR headset and motion controllers alongside the launch of WMR for Xbox or shortly afterward, think something like the recent Xbox Audio Headset in terms of style and design. Aim for specs that match or beat what Sony is planning for PSVR2, with a comparable price tag.
-Start building out a VR first party immediately, which will release exclusively to WMR to drive WMR sales. Ninja Theory already has some VR experience from Darth Vader VR, get them working on Hellblade 2 and Project Mara VR versions. Bethesda already made a big VR push with Fallout 4 VR, Doom VFR, and Wolfenstein Cyberpilot, build out some teams for future VR games at those studios on series like Starfield, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Doom, Wolfenstein, and Dishonored. Racing is well suited for VR so build out a VR team at either Playground or Turn 10 for a Forza VR game. Start building out a VR team at 343 working on a Flood based horror game or maybe a Halo space combat game. Maybe acquire a few VR studios. Release a few of these first party VR exclusives alongside the launch of WMR for Xbox Series, if they can get them done that quickly (hopefully some of the Bethesda studios already had some more VR games in development that could be made WMR exclusive and release alongside WMR for Xbox.)
-Start partnering with 3rd party devs to get some WMR compatible VR games on Gamepass for PC now, try to get some big ones like Beat Saber. Have some 1st, 2nd, and 3rd party VR games ready for the launch of Xbox WMR support alongside the addition of VR games to Xbox Gamepass, including day one Gamepass for 1st/2nd party VR games.
