Even prices of two products are same, Odyssey title will be available for 499 dollars and includes motion controls in package.
You can preorder HMD Odyssey and you'll get one, with shipping starting on November 6. The Gear VR sells for $40 to $130.
The Windows platform will also have a good range of content; Microsoft has its own IP such as Halo and Minecraft, and the platform will also be compatible with SteamVR, giving access to two VR ecosystems with a single headset purchase. However, there is no information regarding the pricing and availability of the VR headset.
While Microsoft has made much of the confusing Mixed Reality claims, their marketing rightly emphasises the actual advantage their headsets have - easy setup and usage via inside-out tracking, which solves some of the practical pain points plaguing in other VR headsets.
GameSpot has confirmed that "Halo: Recruit" will not be a game or part of one but instead be an exciting new arcade experience from Microsoft.
Both Apple and Google are focused on bringing a slightly different format called "augmented reality" to smartphones running on their software. They aren't the right hardware to offer through-the-camera-style augmented reality. This means that it won't squeeze your head, like other headsets do. Today, Samsung launches its own stand-alone version of new VR headset (Samsung HMD Odyssey VR) which works as a stand-alone device.
Alanna Cotton, General Manager and the America VP for Samsung Electronics wrote in a statement that the Samsung HMD Odyssey was built to offer an "incredible world of virtual reality" through a performing headset. The Oculus headset also requires a connection to a high-powered PC.
The professional VR headset is booming day by day.
