The VR space is about to get a whole lot ore crowded. Currently, there are only three VR headsets worth anything in the market- the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive, and the PlayStation VR. Of these, the former two are extremely expensive (they cost $599 and $799 respectively), and require extremely high end gaming PCs to even work properly.

But starting next year, true, mainstream accessible high end VR may be coming. At their Surface keynote yesterday, Microsoft confirmed that third party partners like Acer, Lenovo, Dell, HP, and Asus would be launching next year. According to Microsoft, these headsets will also feature inside-out tracking, a technical term for being able to track movement in space without desk- or wall-mounted sensors- which is something that no other headset on the market currently has (the Vive, for instance, requires you to set up the Lighthouse, while the PlayStation VR depends on the PlayStation Camera).

Equally importantly, it also sounds like these headsets may be self sufficient. It seems like you’d be able to just wear these sets and not have to set anything else up, unlike on any existing VR headset. And the killer? These sets could start out for as low as $299. That means that more than even the PlayStation VR, these headsets could induce mass market adoption of VR.

    LOL. Would you look at these garbage headsets made out of recycled beer cans?

    Chaz, Chaz, Chaz, you’re talking out your asz, asz, asz.

    I call these types of articles, “Chaz’s desperate Xbox One is getting all the great stuff that Sony has”, news articles.

    Oh wait, did Phil Spencer just tweet something? Chaz, get in the news van pronto! Phil just tweeted tomorrow’s next big headline!
