Microsoft it continues to invest in VR, in fact, months before the news about a new possible hybrid viewer that could be announced this week at the IFA, although it is possible that it is finally a revised version of Samsung Odyssey, as we learned in the middle of the month.
Throughout this time, the company he went on to work on a viewer and even partner with some companies to create content for his console, as published by CNET. Said VR device was finally put waiting until the arrival of new technology, something that coincides with the statements they made on other occasions about the importance of the wireless to enjoy immersive experiences in our living room. As for the viewer, they comment that the physical designs were not well known and that the specifications about their visual quality were considered good, although not as good as those of Rift and Vive, suggesting that they probably had a lower resolution, as is the case with PSVR.
