The VR price war steps up a notch. On 11/19, the Microsoft Store will have up to $100 off all Mixed Reality headets. The confirmed $100 off is the Lenovo Explorer. That makes it $299. A certain Excellent reBates site is offering $50 CB on $250 that overlaps that sale by 1 day. That makes the Lenovo Explorer $249 all in.
These kits come with the controllers.
These are all 63mm IPD headsets. Fixed. Except for the Samsung. So keep that in mind.
It's confirmed that they run SteamVR and Oculus Software through Revive. People are already doing it.
True to it's word, Microsoft has made these headsets work decently on low end hardware. Unlike the Rift and Vive which require at least 1050Tis and above, these Microsoft headsets run on machines even with integrated graphics. Of course, the experience is better the better the hardware. But people have played games like Space Pirate Trainer on old 940mx laptops and they say it works well enough. A 940mx has 1/5th of the minimum speed required by an Oculus Rift. The min recommended spec for Mixed Reality period is GT 620 integrated graphics. The recommend spec for "Ultra" is a 1050.
In the last thread, there was a lot of back and forth about a bunch of things. Just watch this review, it answers pretty much everything discussed.
