One of the exciting rumors making the rounds today is that Microsoft is in the late stages of developing a virtual reality headset. DigiTimes claims the software giant plans to mass produce the VR headset in 2015 and heard the product may be launched at the E3 gaming show in June 2015.
The sources also believe head-worn products will become a new focus of the gaming hardware developers for the next-generation gaming devices.
Microsoft also has a Kinect sensor-ready Google Glass-similar wearable device, the Fortaleza project, in development, but the company has not yet unveiled details for the product.
Hexus adds that Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick got to test one of these headsets at Microsoft's HQ in November and was thoroughly impressed by the experience:
In November we heard that Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick had tried an 'enhanced reality' product at Microsoft HQ. He described it as follows: "The demo that I had was at Microsoft's headquarters in a room given over to this [technology], and you had an immersive headset on, and there are characters that appear to be real, and you're interacting with the characters and they're not real, and it's pretty extraordinary," reports GameSpot.
