Project Scorpio and Xbox One to get Mixed Reality headsets in 2018

Acer's Windows Mixed Reality Development Edition headset, which Microsoft is going to ship to developers in the coming weeks, combines a VR-headset-like display with external cameras for experiences that include both computer-generated and real-world images. Instead, these packages contain only new files and "binary deltas" created to adjust existing files on users' systems.

Microsoft announced earlier today at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2017 in San Francisco that mixed reality support will arrive on all versions of the Xbox One.

Kalia also noted that many Windows 10 users shared the same experience and irritation toward the company and advised Microsoft to fix what was done.

The move would bring an AR headset like Hololens to the Xbox One and Project Scorpio. This marks the beginning of the rollout of Microsoft-endorsed VR headsets that support "world scale" tracking and "mixed reality" apps. The ticket will redeem an Acer mixed reality headset to start developing on Windows.

After a few rounds of testing with its Windows Insiders, Microsoft announced that its PC users can soon expect the download size of major Windows updates to decrease by about 35%. But many upcoming VR headsets might also have those capabilities.

The $24 billion valuation is slightly above the range the company aimed for two weeks ago when its IPO plans were made public. It also partners with companies that sponsor custom filters, which users can apply to the images and videos they take.

A year after it was launched, Windows 10 still remained the subject of criticism, and one of the more passionate critiques was written by Amul Kalia of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. "Moreover, you don't need to bother with a complicated setup, just plug and play", Microsoft said in its official blog post.

"Microsoft renamed "Windows Holographic" to "Windows Mixed Reality" to be more encompassing of the company's broader vision for the platform".

The objective is apparently to allow developers a high-fidelity option to use while creating their MR experiences, without having to hack a Vive or Rift.

As you can see in the chart below, the median download size of differential packages is substantially smaller compared to canonical download packages (for full builds), and which means they should download faster.

Back to the Acer headset, it will feature two liquid crystal displays with a resolution 1440 x 1440 displays, a 60 HZ refresh rate.
