Valve, Microsoft, And HP Are Working Together On A VR Headset
A new "next-gen" VR headset is in the works, and it'll be a collaborative effort between Valve, Microsoft, and HP.
A new "next-gen" headset is in the works, and while nothing concrete has been announced about what it'll be able to do, it's coming from some heavy hitters. The headset--literally just called "Next Gen HP VR Headset" on its own Steam page--is being worked on by Valve, Microsoft, and HP.
The device's page on HP's website gives some more information with its description. "Developed in collaboration with Valve and Microsoft, the next gen HP VR headset delivers a more immersive, comfortable, and compatible experience than the previous generation," it reads. "It’s the new standard in VR."
Here's a little look at the headset, which will prominently display the "HP" logo.
Potential buyers can sign up to be notified when there's more news from HP's site.
Valve is obviously invested in VR, having just released Half-Life: Alyx and giving it away for free to owners of the Valve Index (although it works on a variety of devices). The game received a 9/10 in the GameSpot review.
