Samsung creates VR headset for Windows”

Microsoft held a press conference for the upcoming launch of the Windows Mixed Reality platform today, confirming the existence of the Samsung Odyssey and launching the pre-order campaign for the numerous head-mounted displays (HMDs). At the moment this appears to be the most extravagant Windows Mixed Reality HMD yet revealed.

There's a new Halo title on the way, and it promises to be very different than anything the series has delivered before.

The field of view is also supposedly better and up to 110 degrees.

Samsung officially unveiled its Windows Mixed Reality headset. Keep in mind Microsoft's mixed reality platform is a mix between augmented reality and virtual reality.

We're excited about Windows for the first time in as long as we can remember, and you will be too after you watch the demo below. With the headset and controllers paired, the full position and rotational tracking in the headset enable you to easily create content or play games. Instead, it is more akin to the Star Wars and Spider-Man experiences that have come to VR recently. If you have a machine with decent discreet graphics, you're going to have a noticeably smoother experience with Odyssey over the headsets from the other OEMs. The Odyssey is actually the best Mixed Reality headset with Windows operating system.

AltspaceVR is available for Google Daydream, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Samsung Gear VR, but not Windows Mixed Reality.

Halo 5 was the last main game to release for the series, which launched in 2015 for Xbox One. The HMD Odyssey connects to a Windows 10 PC through an HDMI 2.0 and a USB 3.0 connection through a 4 meter cable. Microsoft has also teamed up with Valve for the consumer gaming aspect of Microsoft's mixed reality push. "It was a chance for us to start to play with Microsoft's amazing new technology and for you to get to stand toe-to-toe with an Elite".

The HP headset comes with motion controllers and is priced at $449 USD.

Microsoft didn't specify exactly how Halo Recruit will utilize the company's mixed reality tech, but it sounds like it will be a fairly simple experience.
