Microsoft Have Been “Playing With” VR for a While, Phil Spencer Says

Microsoft have been trying out their own ideas for virtual reality for a while, Phil Spencer said at GDC.

I think the technology’s really interesting, and it’s definitely something we’ve been playing with for quite a while.

Spencer did not confirm that Microsoft was working on their own VR headset to rival Sony’s Morpheus, but did draw attention to the company’s research division and the concepts it has created.

Spencer was positive about the idea of virtual reality though, congratulating Sony for its Morpheus reveal.

Sony did a good job with Morpheus and showing it here, and talking to the developer community.

Looking at things like Oculus, Morpheus–they haven’t sent me one yet–but when I think about VR and its uses in gaming I think there’s a real¬†something¬†there.
