Report: Microsoft Working on VR Devices


An interesting report regarding Microsoft surfaced on Tuesday as the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Microsoft is working on virtual reality devices for both the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

According to the newspaper report, sources have told them that the Seattle-based company is currently working on a VR headset, and patents have already been filed that mention virtual reality.

Sony is expected to announce its own VR headset for the PlayStation 4 this week at GDC 2014.

Mike’s Musings: I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I’m not a fan of VR in any way, shape or form. I like to relax (for the most part) when I play video games. Wearing a headset on top of my glasses is something that I just don’t find relaxing. If anything, I find the thought of VR to be more of a nuisance than anything. I know plenty of others will disagree, but I just can’t see VR being anything more than a quick, short-lived fad in gaming.
