Halo: Recruit, a Mixed Reality experience, is releasing this month

The HMD Odyssey will retail for $499, which is certainly up there in price compared to the other Windows Mixed Reality headsets. "People were sad that they wouldn't be able to see what we could have built together with our community".

Microsoft held a private event yesterday and announced the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

KitGuru Says: Samsung does seem to have the most compelling option out of all the Windows 10 "mixed reality" headsets coming to market this year.

The Windows Mixed Reality (MR) platform and accompanying headsets is created to allow for a more affordable virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) experience.

Microsoft's blended version of augmented reality (AR) and VR is a new platform to immerse more users into the digital experience with lower-priced and less graphically-intensive headsets. There will be apps from 20,000 titles that support the platform including games like Minecraft.

Microsoft also used the special event for what Kipman called, "The first ever acquisition to be announced entirely from within Virtual Reality", with the news that it has acquired social VR service, AltspaceVR. Knowing this, 343 chief Kiki Wolfkill attempted to manage expectations, describing the free demo as a "fun little arcade experience" rather than a game in any way. There will be the Windows Mixed Reality and Windows Mixed Reality Ultra, with the latter, meant for high-performance systems, but regardless what headset you own, both the MR options will be available to you. The Samsung Odyssey, just announced today, is coming November 6 for $499 (roughly £375 or AU$640).

Halo: Recruit will be releasing on October 17th this month. Halo Recruit isn't a game, it's just a short experience. Shipped together with a pair of WMR Motion Controllers, the headset can be obtained in United States at Dollars 499 (about RM 2,110) this coming November although it is not known at the moment whether Samsung is willing to release the headset in Malaysia or otherwise.

Alanna Cotton, Samsung USA VP and GM, introduces the Odyssey on the Cliff House rooftop.
