The PC-driven headsets that Microsoft is embracing illuminate the dividing lines among some of the world's most powerful technology companies as they all try to hook consumers and businesses on products and applications that blend the real world with digital versions of it. The future is wide-open for virtual reality gaming, so anything is possible.

With WMR, when you fire up your computer, your next desktop will be a 3-dimensional home that you can decorate with art and apps alike. The first iteration is called The Cliff House, but more locations will be available. Thanks to their inclusion, the Odyssey should work with most SteamVR games when support rolls out later this year.

It remains to be seen whether WMR will truly take off, but Microsoft seems to be all-in. The Master Chief has made defeating these beasts look so easy over the years that standing before them in VR gives entirely new meaning to their deadliness, and I didn't even get to see the Covenant's largest foot soldier, the massive Hunter.

Kipman - faint, bottom right - plays Cuphead on Xbox One in WMR. At Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality event, conducted today both Microsoft and Samsung have officially disclosed it at last. Knowing this, 343 chief Kiki Wolfkill attempted to manage expectations, describing the free demo as a "fun little arcade experience" rather than a game in any way.

It is always hard in the wake of the kind of tragedy we all experienced this week to try to be business-as-usual, because well, it's just not usual.

Recent reports have suggested that Samsung is building its very own Windows Mixed Reality headset. With inside-out position tracking, users are not restricted to a limited space during their virtual reality experience.

Alanna Cotton, Samsung USA VP and GM, introduces the Odyssey on the Cliff House rooftop.

The HMD Odyssey additionally comes with a pair of motion controllers that lets players move around their environment without having to bother about sensors.
