Microsoft Bringing Mixed Reality To The XboxBy Susan Cole Mar 03, 2017
Developers will soon have the tools for creating immersive, mixed-reality experiences in Windows, announced Microsoft on March 1 during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. But Scorpio and those devices will support MR as well-more specifically, Windows Mixed Reality, what used to be called Windows Holographic-in 2018. Microsoft is partnering with other companies to make Windows headsets, including Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo and 3Glasses.
The first Windows Mixed Reality kit that will hit the developers will be from Acer.
"(We're) always watching to see what happens", said Spencer on the prospect of a Microsoft supported portable gaming device. She says, "We use this term mixed reality to represent this spectrum of augmented reality to virtual reality and everything in-between". Developers who decide to pay up would then gain access to the Xbox developer kit and submit their games for retail.
The news comes at a pivotal time for the firm's virtual and mixed reality ambitions, fields that are both expected to experience a boom via moves just like this.
Microsoft have revealed more details on its mixed reality platform. Also, Chris Charla, the director of this program, explained that the games will be available in the upcoming Project Scorpio and on the special app found on the mobile platforms. This means that all the room tracking and motion tracking is done inside the headset.

Meanwhile, Entertainment Tonight reported that John Mayer confessed on The Ellen DeGeneres show that he's a Bachelor Nation fan. Editor's note: Waukesha native Nick Viall is searching for love during his fourth appearance on a " Bachelor "-franchise show".
But these new more affordable Windows mixed reality headsets, like Acer's, don't see the real world quite the way you'd expect.
Of course, we can all dare to hope that any future portable Xbox device will fare better than Microsoft's ambitious motion detection system. Phil Spencer has also stated that he wants the console to come with VR features integrated in it so that owners can have everything they need in one place.
Another step forward for Microsoft in its mixed reality journey.
The Windows 10 Creators Update will incorporate improvements to the update deployment experience, meaning users will have more control over the update process than ever.
