So Microsoft entered the foray and their plan is to take out the competition.
Their VR Headset will be a $299 (USD) headset that takes advantage of Windows 10 forthcoming update "Creators Update".
The headset market is starting to get crowded and as a consumer, you really need to start doing your homework, but looking at price points alone really changes the field of play. I would need to see more functionality and scalability from Microsoft before I invest my money, even at such a low point. Now for some research....
Microsoft's holographic computing platform will cross over to the world of virtual reality. The company first revealed its hybrid-VR ambitions at Computex earlier this year and today that vision was solidified on stage at its big Surface event in New York City. Microsoft has partnered with companies like HP, ASUS, Lenovo, Dell and Acer to bring a slew of affordable VR headsets, all of which are said to start at $299.
