Microsoft Hits Back At $400 PlayStation VR
Microsoft is having a go back at the PlayStation VR with the Microsoft VR headset. However it is important to bear in mind that the Microsoft headset is different from HoloLens.
Microsoft just revealed that they are going to launch VR headsets that will be able to take full advantage of the Windows 10 VR and holographic capabilities and the headset is going to come with a price tag of $299, while the PlayStation VR is priced at $400.
The Microsoft system is said to offer six degree of freedom tracking and people have said that it sounds much like the prototype Oculus Santa Cruz, which comes with inside out tracking. These are not like the HoloLens, which is a mixed reality headset, projecting virtual objects into the real world.
The listed partners of Microsoft have been working in VR already and Acer is working alongside Starbreeze to offer up the high end StarVR headset. Microsoft has worked alongside Oculus in the past and we were surprised to find that the company is absent for the new line-up of Windows VR products.
