If you're a fan of the VR scene, you'll know that Among Us VR is one of the most highly-anticipated games coming to the Meta Quest 2 and other devices, but for obvious reasons we'll have to stick to the flatscreen version on Xbox.
Still, the developers had a little fun with Xbox fans earlier this week when they included the "Xbox Moda" in a survey of devices that people might want to see Among Us VR included on. As expected, it received a fair bit of attention:
In theory it could be possible, but if you look closer the joke begins to unravel. The Sensorama, for example, was one of the earliest examples of VR from the 1960s, while Virtuality was a product of the 90s.
While Among Us VR almost certainly isn't going to get any kind of Xbox release (at least for now), we're still hopeful Phil Spencer and his team might decide to embrace virtual reality at some point. The Microsoft Gaming CEO has already stated that a dedicated headset isn't in the works though, explaining last year that the company was intending to stay "in the consumer space focused on software".
Do you want to see Xbox integrate VR? Let us know down in the comments below.
Beat Saber is cool, but i haven't played another single game of interest in VR. I understand why it's linked to traditional gaming, but it feels like a completely different medium
Would I like to see an Xbox VR headset? Yes, with PSVR2 on the horizon and the Series X having the necessary grunt to run VR games it's time for Xbox to give their gamers that choice.
But do I think it will actually happen? No.
I'd love to see a Xbox VR headset. Even better would be if I could just use one of my current VR headsets. If it says anything, I generally use VR more than say my Xbox or non VR PC games.
That said, if it is anything like PSVR, and is wired, it would be an immediate skip. Wires and VR have not been acceptable for a while now.
I think they should just make it a generic pass through mode compatible with existing headsets.
I still think allowing third party "inside out" headsets on series x is the best way to test the water. Minimal risk to MS (no hardware sitting on shelves if it fails), good PR of letting users use their "existing headset" and if it does well they profit from the games sold.
As pretty much everyone else said, they should just let you use this party headsets; although, idk why this couldn’t work on series s. Obviously it would be a lesser experience but after having played vr with the Nintendo switch in breath of the wild, I would not mind if they bumped the resolution down a bunch to keep the framerate high. Most people wouldn’t care, but as someone who can’t afford a series x and would like to try out vr, I would at least like to be able to try it on my system.
Im hoping they make the game pass app official on quest and see what the numbers are from that and if they are big enough ,venture in to Thier own Xbox vr headset
@Carck You're 100% correct. Just got into VR a couple months ago and it's amazing how boring some things are in VR that would be interesting in a traditional game (and vice versa). Imagine climbing the ladder in MGS3 in VR; it would be an entirely different experience altogether.
@Carck i’ve got a Quest 2 and PSVR. I agree, it’s completely different from flat screen gaming. There are some quality games. Golf Eclub is fantastic, Res Evil 4, Walking Dead, etc.
