When Microsoft launched Windows Mixed Reality in October, the companion headsets started shipping with motion controllers included in the box. Development headsets shipped to developers early on, however, didn't include motion controllers, leaving those who picked one up in a tough spot. But if you count yourself among those early adopters, Microsoft is now making up for the omission with a free set of motion controllers.
Microsoft has started shipping the controllers out to early adopters, along with a note thanking them for jumping in early. From the note:
As one of our early adopters of the Windows Mixed Reality headsets, we value you and would like to express our gratitude with this set of motion controllers to help you get the most out of your experience. We're excited to help you start exploring and can't wait to see what you build.
The controllers are unbranded, and, depending on the number of headsets purchased, you'll receive a matching number of sets.
If you're a developer who picked up a development headset early on, have you received a free set of controllers yet? Let us know in the comments!
