Earlier this week, the head of Xbox Phil Spencer came out and stated that they are not interested in doing VR with the Xbox Consoles. Spencer received some flack for that and has somewhat taken his statement in a different direction. According to a tweet, he mentioned that he was able to play Half-Life: Alyx, the newly announced VR game from Valve, over the summer and the game was “amazing”. He also commented that he loves how the industry has pioneered the technology along with AI and physics. He does reassure that VR is not a focus for Xbox Scarlett. You can view the tweet below.
Fair feedback. I've said publically, I love how our industry has pioneered: AI, physics, 3D, RT, VR/AR etc. For us, it's about focus on our innovations right now. I've played some great VR games, I got to play HL:Alyx in the summer, amazing. It's just not our focus with Scarlett
