    I was just wondering if anyone had any news, clues, or ideas when or if WMR or other HMDs could be coming to Xbox? Many fans, including myself, are just straight up tired of waiting and have sold their Xboxs to go to PSVR to get their VR fix instead of opting for PC which can be costly.

    Mike Ybarra has publicly said that there will be no VR on Xbox through 2019. Personally, I'll put money on one or two titles happening next year. I would assume you are probably going to need a One X to do it.

    Wow. They said VR was coming at the X launch the it got pushed back to 2018 and now were looking at 2020? Oh wow. I sold my X1 to get the PSVR and was starting to save money to get an Xbox One X thinking that the Big E3 announcement was gonna be both cloud gaming and VR. Guess not. Been with Xbox since 2001 never owned a PS until last month when I bought one for the VR. Guess ima have to stick to Sony from here on out until I can afford a PC

    I don't understand why xbox x don't support WMR. Why do I need to buy a gaming computer to get the best VR experience?

    I'd love to see VR and Augmented Reality come to Xbox One / Xbox One X.

    My wife would love to be able to use VR on a console. We'd like to be able to use it for ourselves in some story based games as well as using it for parties (I know that party games will tend to be more gimmicky).

    I hope that VR as a medium moves beyond being a gimmick, and becomes something that is widely supported and utilized. I feel like price point will be the biggest hurdle for that, followed by the ingenuity, budgets, and schedules of developers.

    While I understand some players want Microsoft to come through with this, I am not one of them. I have a Vive and Samsumg Odyessy WMR, I've was more impressed with the Vive 2 years ago than I am with WMR now. It just feels like they will half-*** it like WMR.

    Why are you more impressed with the Vive? Is it because of the available content?

    What happened with the uwp app support? It’s ok if I can’t use the WMR for all games, but I want to use the current VR apps in the store. Of course SteamVR support would be nice

    I'll be honest, I have absolutely ZERO interest in vr. Be it on PC, xbox, playstation, etc... However, I find it unbelievable that MS has not made something available for xbox users who do have an interest in it. With the resources, both in money and engineers/people, they have at MS there really is no excuse for them not having it.

    Mostly content and hardware, the vive is a premium device from 2 yrs ago. the first WMR headsets felt like they ignored what made the vive so good and created a version 1.0 WMR. HTC got the vive right on the first try!!!! The odyssey is the only headset that at least performs and feels like a step up from the vive, all the other WMR headsets felt crippled and out of date on day one.

    Content is the other thing, the steam integration is still buggy and feels like an afterthought...

    WMR headsets are already being discount at up to 50% because they are not selling.

    With that said, MS owns PC 100%, you would have thought their foray into VR would have been top notch. Can they even do enough to make the XBOX VR experience any better?

    Microsoft wants to wait for wireless headset tech, that may very well be at least 3yrs away...

    I'm still waiting myself. The Xbox One X has all this power and it's being drastically underutilized.
