E3 is almost upon us, with its imminent arrival the Xbox rumor mill has been in full flow: Is there a new console being revealed? What about a new overpowered Xbox that will be able to compete with the PC market? And of course the new ‘in’ thing; Is Xbox getting Virtual Reality? Xbox One VR – that would be a nice addition to the Xbox armory, will it however join the Kinect as a love it or hate it item, a one that’s generally confined to occasional uses when friends are over (unless like me you use the voice commands for everything)
If some of the reports are to be believed this is soon to become a reality. According to a NeoGaf user by the name of 00ich the E3 page is now showing something interesting, Take a look for yourself here. There are numerous categories that now show Virtual Reality> Xbox One. It seems strange to add these categories if there is nothing to go into them. This appears to be hinting at the fact there will be some sort of Xbox related VR news revealed at this years E3. One thought is that with Microsoft already having the Hololens it is plausible to think that this unit could be altered to work with the Xbox One. This would allow the company a fast track over to VR from PC, negating the need for a newly designed piece of hardware. Although the Hololens is Augmented Reality and not VR its quite possible to think that they may go with AR instead for now. The sub heading on the E3 page states VR but that could just be for simplicity, who knows. Either way its still interesting to speculate on whats coming.
