Virtual reality gear coming to Xbox? Yep

During today’s Windows 10 presentation at Microsoft, Windows boss Terry Myerson showed an intriguing rendering of what’s to come with Xbox and Windows 10.

In a rendering of what’s to come with Windows 10, Myerson showed an Xbox and Windows tablet being used with virtual-reality goggles.

A slide deck leaked a few years ago suggested Microsoft was planning to release virtual-reality goggles for the Xbox but the company has yet to share details or confirm the roadmap.

Meanwhile its chief rival in the gaming space, Sony, is preparing to release a virtual-reality headset for the PlayStation.

More gaming details are coming later this morning during the Windows 10 event.

Could VR gear be one of the new Windows 10 devices that Myerson teased in his opening speech? Or maybe Windows 10 and Xbox¬†will just support VR gear made by Facebook’s Oculus VR and other companies.

UPDATE: Sure enough, the company announced the HoloLens, though it says the system isn’t exactly a virtual reality device.
