Xbox boss talks about embracing both platforms for VR.

Posted By | On 12th, Apr. 2017 Under News


As Microsoft continues to E3 2017, where it will likely showcase Project Scorpio’s final design, name and pricing, Xbox boss Phil Spencer spoke to Gamasutra about the console supporting virtual reality.

Spencer re-confirmed that Scorpio would support VR but believes the overall creative community for the technology is on PC. “So we will support VR on Scorpio. We said that onstage. We will support VR on Scorpio, we’re going to do that, I think it’s important, I think there’s some great immersive VR experiences.

“But I still feel like the motion of the creative community is more vibrant on PC. And that’s the place where we’re going to see a lot of those ideas.”

The plan currently then is “to try and embrace both of those things, as opposed to creating a vertical in the VR space to say okay this thing is completely disconnected from the other things. Because I think the Windows space is the place where most of the developer engagement is happening.”

It will be interesting to see how Scorpio will handle VR and how it will compete with Sony’s PlayStation VR. Regardless, what are your thoughts on the same? Let us know below.

    “But I still feel like the motion of the creative community is more vibrant on PC. And that’s the place where we’re going to see a lot of those ideas”

    PSVR sold more than both PC VR sets, so no I can’t see VR being more vibrant on PC myself when more VR kits have sold on a console?

    Phil Spencer lying about VR again as usual.

    The reason why he is focused on PC is because Microsoft cares about keeping devs and consumers on Windows. He is also basically telling Xbox gamers that they’re less important than the PC guys.

    Also, ripping off PSVR after Phil Spencer downplayed PSVR. It shows just how much Phil Spencer has been contradicting himself.

      Problem with VR is that for the Scorpio it’s third party tech.. microsoft doesnt make VR headsets.
