Mixed Reality headsets aren't exactly flying off the shelves, and prices dropped significantly in January to help boost sales; this was essential because $400 is a lot for a wired headset, or even a standalone one like the Oculus Go

Steam's support for them came out of Early Access in early May, offering a bigger selection of games, which certainly levels up their attraction, though.
