Microsoft Lied – The Xbox One Won’t Support VR

Posted by at 11:23 am on June 21, 2018

Microsoft has stepped back from suggestions it will bring virtual reality games to its Xbox consoles.

In 2016, Microsoft said its next console – then nicknamed Project Scorpio – would enable high-performance virtual reality experiences.

But, now, it says it does not have any specific plans to bring VR to the Xbox.

Rival console-maker Sony has sold more than a million PlayStation VR headsets, but analysts suggest VR sales have generally been slow.

Microsoft now says it wants to focus its “mixed reality” efforts on the PC.

“We don’t have any plans specific to Xbox consoles in virtual reality or mixed reality,” Microsoft’s chief marketing officer for gaming, Mike Nichols, told news website¬†gamesindustry.biz.

“Our perspective on it has been and continues to be that the PC is probably the best platform for more immersive VR and MR.”
