"Mixed Reality is the future", Microsoft said in its announcement, "and we want everyone on the journey with us".

Microsoft's upcoming Mixed Reality headsets won't need external cameras to operate, and are compatible with SteamVR, the company has announced. They'll also be able to mirror the headset's picture on-screen so that bystanders can watch what you're seeing in VR.

Although Microsoft aims to create completely new VR content down the line, the company certainly isn't ignoring the many excellent VR titles that already exist. This summer, a promotion brought the price down to $399, including the hand controllers.

Dell has launched several new hardware products and refreshes just in time for the back-to-school season, including its first ever headset for Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality platform.

As for the actual PCs, Microsoft has broken them down into two designations: Mixed-Reality PCs and Mixed-Reality Ultra PCs.

In addition, Steam content will run on Windows Mixed Reality headsets, giving owners access to a robust catalogue of virtual reality games and experiences. But more powerful PCs with discrete graphics, called Windows Mixed Reality Ultra PCs, will run at 90 frames per second.

On the topic of clear wins, the platform's overall tracking is indeed a game-changer without qualification and an evolution that will undoubtedly be coming other headsets soon. "We can't wait to bring their content to you", Kipman said.

Microsoft is making this fall a great deal more interesting for any and all parties interested in virtual reality.

At this point it's unclear this the Halo VR experience may be an entirely new release or whether the next game in the Halo series will just include some VR-only features. VR and mixed reality are similar in that both have virtual constructs in them, but in VR everything that the user of the tech sees is virtual whereas mixed reality overlays virtual objects with your real world environment. I demoed a number of VR experiences and on-average things felt comparable to an experience on the Gear VR while the higher-resolution displays offered crisp views.

Microsoft took away the controllers and moved me to a standard PC with integrated graphics. Whether Microsoft achieves that goal - with Apple, Google, and Facebook all ramping up the competition - remains to be seen.

The new controllers operate in a 3-dimensional space including forward/back, up/down, and left/right with sensors in the headset tracking motion.
