Don't hold your breath for the Xbox VR headset.
Well, Microsoft hasn't said much about it but rumors of a VR headset have been floating around for years, they basically nixed the plans but our own e-insurer had the scoop on actually the fact that they were in active development for a headset to the point where they were actually asking partners to create specific content for them And really looking at the kind of device build and the screen quality.
I mean I think it's a good thing, it got nixed, I mean I've seen games for the Playstation 4 VR-
I don't really think we're there yet as far as good games in VR, and I know a lot of people that play a lot of VR games are gonna tell me I'm completely wrong.
And I probably am.
But I just don't know if the market is really there for them right now.
Yes, it's interesting that they decided to pull back on that given the fact that VR, there was a lot of hype around over the last few years.
Playstation's been investing in it.
Oculus has been investing in it.
HTC obviously, So the fact that VR, the hype has died down a bit and you can kinda look back.
Yeah you're like all right, all right.
This is a smart call.
But just sort of given that initial appetite for VR it's surprising that Microsoft didn't roll anything out.
I'm curious if they are holding back so they can put out something more high end that like once a demand is there or if they are moreso relying on like halo lens for Microsoft.
If they wanna do more AR gaming with Right.
With their consoles because I know that they were kind of all in with Kinect for a while, so I mean, I feel like that might fit in really well with AR.
Though I had a Kinect and I found it worthless and I'm still pretty angry about it.
You would probably be saying the same thing about Xbox VR if had it come out.
That is a really good point, one of the details that Ian.
[INAUDIBLE] Is the fact they are waiting for better screen quality.
Things like a wireless adapter, which right now is an accessory that's available to the HTC Vive for a several hundred dollars on top of the small fortune you're spending on a VR headset.
So, we'll have to wait around and see if Xbox embraces VR down the line.
