Halo VR Experience, 'Halo: Recruit,' Hits This Month

Headsets that let you step into a 3-D version of Windows 10 are now available to preorder

Microsoft announced Tuesday that yet another company is going to build a virtual reality headset for its Windows Mixed Reality platform: Samsung. "But most of all, we can't wait for you to take the Samsung HMD Odyssey out for a spin, and see it for yourself".

Microsoft is taking the fight to Facebook's Oculus Rift and HTC's VIVE virtual reality headsets by dropping the virtual reality and augmented reality monikers.

Perhaps the biggest way in which the Odyssey stands out among other premium AR and virtual reality (VR) headsets is in its setup.

The Samsung HMD Odyssey will be available later this year in the U.S., China, Korea, Brazil and Hong Kong.

Additionally, the just-revealed Samsung HMD Odyssey will be available on November 3rd.

The announcement is a bit of a big deal, at least potentially.

Now, it's no secret that Oculus has the mass VR market in a tight grip thanks to an existing consumer base and a huge library of titles.

The tech giant also announced the acquisition of AltSpaceVR, a leading platform for immersive communications development. The blog post from developer 343 Industries doesn't mention or include a list of which stores will be getting the experience.

The HMD Odyssey additionally comes with a pair of motion controllers that lets players move around their environment without having to bother about sensors. They also come with built in headphones and mic, these are all integral to the design so no need for attaching extra parts. In fact, you probably want to reduce brightness in a VR headset so you don't strain the eyes.

So what makes this better than other Windows VR devices?

With dual 3.5-inch AMOLED displays, the Samsung HMD Odyssey delivers more vibrant colors, and deeper blacks, providing crisper, more lifelike images.
