New VR headsets will be coming to the market very shortly, and they may be a bit more affordable. At Microsoft's Windows 10 event that was held in New York on Wednesday, they emphasized a large focus on virtual reality in an upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update. The update will be coming out in the early months of 2017, but it should allow for more affordable, and even more advanced VR headsets coming to the market.
At the event, they even teased several new VR headsets that will be available on the market soon. These headsets were created by Acer, Dell, HP, Asus, and Lenovo. Microsoft came out and stated that these headsets will feature inside-out tracking, which is the ability to track movement in space without mounted sensors all around you. Once you put on the headset, it will be ready to go without having to add any outside sources.
It sounds like these new VR lenses will be great for casual gamers. Not a ton of setup will be required and it can be used very casually wherever you happen to be. They're looking to be priced around $299 which isn't too bad when you look at the prices of other headsets on the market right now. The sooner these guys come out the better and I'm really excited to see if they take off!
