Chime in: Do you really want Windows Mixed Reality on Xbox One X?

Microsoft originally touted VR as a driving force behind the Xbox One X specs, which were supposed to bring high-fidelity VR to the console in addition to 4K gaming. Since the reveal, though, all mention of VR vanished from the related marketing.

Microsoft later clarified that a few things need to happen before the Xbox One X gets VR. Namely, the company needs to add a wireless headset to reduce wiring problems in the living room. The prospect of getting those sorts of features in the near-term seems unlikely.

In a recent post on our forums, Windows Central user Richard Loveridge had an encounter with a PC store employee, who told him a few interesting things about bringing Windows Mixed Reality to Xbox One.

Half way through the space demo I asked the Rep for MS cheekily are they bringing this to Xbox One X next year? His reply was...
