Microsoft Windows 10 VR Headsets
The Microsoft VR headsets operating on Windows 10 will be released soon. Microsoft announced this earlier today, with the starting price expected to attract many customers. Though the VR headsets are of the same calibre as HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, the price is much lower at only $299 (AU$295, £245). This is way lower than Microsoft’s own HoloLens retailing at a whopping $3,000.
A release date was not mentioned but all things constant, they will be ready by spring 2017; hints from Microsoft suggest so.
