The present and future of virtual reality news and technology

1. VR may not be coming to the next-generation Xbox. During a podcast with GamerTag Radio, Microsoft gaming chief Phil Spencer suggested that adding VR support to the platform would take too much work at this point to justify its returns. Jeremy Horwitz reports for the VentureBeat that the comments follow a previous statement by Spencer, in which he said that “nobody’s asking for VR". Spender also once wrongly once claimed that “nobody’s selling millions and millions” of VR headsets, setting off a firestorm within the VR community. It remains to be seen, Horwitz writes, whether Microsoft’s decision to pass on VR in the early days of the Xbox Series X will be viewed as a prudent strategic move or a serious error in judgment. He adds that Microsoft could have ridden the wave to a major Xbox Series X exclusive for the 2020 holiday season. "Instead, it may wind up losing a few million potential early adopters to the PlayStation 5," Horwitz concludes.  – VENTUREBEAT
