The prices for those headsets start at about $400.

Samsung is joining Microsoft's virtual-reality push, announcing an immersive headset that pairs with Windows computers. "AltspaceVR will continue to work on PC and Mac in 2D mode, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Daydream by Google, and Samsung Gear VR", says a Microsoft spokesperson.

The only company to have embraced the entire continuum for MR, from AR to VR. AltspaceVR will remain independent in its name and will still be working across multiple platforms as it previously has, but will include Microsoft communication software in future and Microsoft will now be handling all user accounts. As he put it, "Space is the ultimate interface". This will make the headset better for content consumption and gaming.

Speaking of Xbox, one burning question is whether Microsoft's games console will support WMR, having seemingly walked back its pledge to offer 'High fidelity VR" as "The next step change for gamers'. The Master Chief has made defeating these beasts look so easy over the years that standing before them in VR gives entirely new meaning to their deadliness, and I didn't even get to see the Covenant's largest foot soldier, the massive Hunter. At Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality event, conducted today both Microsoft and Samsung have officially disclosed it at last.

For most people, virtual reality in 2017 means the promise of a new way to game and experience environments that simply aren't available in the real world.

Halo: Recruit will be releasing on October 17th this month. Shipped together with a pair of WMR Motion Controllers, the headset can be obtained in United States at Dollars 499 (about RM 2,110) this coming November although it is not known at the moment whether Samsung is willing to release the headset in Malaysia or otherwise.

With an adjustable control wheel, the Samsung HMD Odyssey is created to provide a comfortable and snug fit.

At present, each of the mixed reality headsets comes bundled with motion controllers, which is why none of them are $299 as previously promised.
