When the Xbox One X was first unveiled under its early "Project Scorpio" codename, Microsoft established several key pillars at the heart of the console experience. While 4K resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR) are main selling points for its release, virtual reality (VR), a feature first discussed as a part of its unveiling, appears to have disappeared off the radar.
With this silence, VR doesn't look to be a feature of the Xbox One X anytime soon. However, following the launch of Microsoft's first full-fledged VR platform, Windows Mixed Reality, its place in the company's gaming strategy is clear. Microsoft might not be looking to commit to delivering high fidelity console VR right now but looks to be a likely addition to the Xbox One X in the years ahead.
Windows Mixed Reality and Xbox recently resurfaced on the Windows Central forums, after one of our readers managed to get hands-on with a retail demo. Microsoft is remaining relatively tight-lipped on Mixed Reality's place in the Xbox brand, choosing to focus on PC experiences for the time being.
But we want to hear your thoughts on Mixed Reality and Xbox One X. Do you think virtual reality will soon make its way to the console? If so, do you think this will be the next major feature for the brand? Make sure to drop in the forum thread and share your ideas with our community!
