According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, Microsoft is working on VR devices for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Multiple sources confirm that the company is working on a VR headset and has already filed patents mentioning virtual reality tech. Microsoft clearly doesn’t want to be left behind by Oculus Rift and Sony’s rumored PS4 VR headset (expected to be unveiled at GDC).
A few years ago, Microsoft had filed a variety of patents that seemed to indicate what their next-generation console would entail, several of which included virtual reality technology. Could the Xbox VR headset be an offshoot of these patents?
