Windows Mixed Reality Headsets Run SteamVR

Rick and Morty Virtual Rick-Ality

It uses a pair of 1440 x 1440 pixel LCD panels that should create quite detailed virtual and mixed reality environments.

As for Halo, it will be coming in the first wave of games coming to Microsoft's "Mixed Reality" platforms.

In addition to Halo, Microsoft revealed that it has worked with Valve software to ensure that anything bought through Steam will also function with the Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

Between this and the move to add Windows Mixed Reality support in Steam, it's evident that Microsoft sees gaming as an important battlefront in its quest for VR market share.

They also completely occluded your vision and were used for experiences that have been traditionally been referred to as virtual reality.

That means that Microsoft's headsets won't just be there to use a VR version of Excel. Asus noted at its press conference there are controllers for the headset - which appears to be standard practice for this slew of Microsoft headsets - though it didn't reference any bundle or individual pricing.

The Dell Visor, which is Dell's first headset for Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality platform, will be available from 17 October for $349.99, or you can get it in a bundle with two controllers for $449.99. Providing PCs purpose-built for mixed reality could help build user Interest. For those looking purely at virtual reality the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive would be an undeniably better choice; it's only when augmented - or "mixed" in Microsoft parlance - reality is brought into the equation that the offerings from Microsoft's hardware partners may tip the scales. But more powerful PCs with discrete graphics, called Windows Mixed Reality Ultra PCs, will run at 90 frames per second.

Windows Mixed Reality PCs: Desktops and laptops with integrated graphics. Steam is definitely one of the most popular mechanisms for people to gain access to the various VR games and apps. Both are powered by Windows 10. The controller allows for "six degrees of freedom of movement in a three-dimensional space and allow total control with haptic feedback", according to Microsoft's blog, with the tracking of the controller fully done by the headset. I demoed a number of VR experiences and on-average things felt comparable to an experience on the Gear VR while the higher-resolution displays offered crisp views.

Meanwhile, prices of mixed reality-capable PCs begin at $499. Whether Microsoft achieves that goal - with Apple, Google, and Facebook all ramping up the competition - remains to be seen.
