Xbox Teams Up With Meta Quest To Create Limited Edition VR Headset

We've been wondering for years whether Xbox might eventually get into the VR market, and although there's no sign of a PlayStation VR-style device on the horizon, we're apparently getting an Xbox-inspired Meta Quest headset!

This is according to a blog on the official Meta website, which talks about plans to open up the Meta Quest operating system to third-party hardware makers. The section about Xbox is limited to just two sentences, but it's very intriguing.

"Xbox and Meta teamed up last year to bring Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) to Meta Quest, letting people play Xbox games on a large 2D virtual screen in mixed reality. Now, we’re working together again to create a limited-edition Meta Quest, inspired by Xbox."

The image you see at the top of this article is also provided by Meta, although it comes with a disclaimer that it's "not an actual product render". If anything about the image is correct, we're assuming this VR headset will still be used for Xbox Cloud Gaming rather than native VR integration - although that's just speculation on our part!

Ultimately, we really don't know enough about what Xbox and Meta are planning here, but it's certainly something to keep an eye on. Is this the start of something big, or is it pretty much just a novelty version of the Quest? We'll see...

What do you think Xbox and Meta are working on here? Let us know down in the comments below.
