Microsoft backpedals on VR promise

If we were still watchful patiently for a practical existence facilities that Microsoft betrothed in 2016, afterwards we have some bad news for you. During E3 final week, Microsoft’s arch selling officer for gaming, Mike Nichols, told GamesIndustry.biz that a association had no skeleton to perform that promise.

“We don’t have any skeleton specific to Xbox consoles in practical existence or churned reality,” Nichols told GamesIndustry.biz.

This goes opposite a guarantee that Microsoft done dual years ago when Xbox arch Phil Spencer told a Verge that a Xbox One X (then dramatically famous as Xbox Scorpio) would support “[the kind of] high-end VR that we see function in a PC space.”

The recover of a Xbox One X came and went though any news of VR integration, though in a interim, Microsoft did make strides toward VR and churned existence tech for PC gaming with a recover of a Windows Mixed Reality headsets for for Windows 10.

According to Nichols, it seems like Microsoft might be adhering to this PC gaming domain for awhile.

“PC is substantially a best height for some-more immersive VR and MR … though as it relates to Xbox, no,” he said.
