HP said that its upcoming Reverb G2 headset at present doesn’t help Xbox One consoles after a Microsoft Retailer itemizing prompt in any other case.
The itemizing is a free app that seems to be a utility for performing a first-time setup of the headset. Beneath each the minimal and really helpful specs, the OS class reads “Home windows 10 model 15063.zero or larger, Xbox One,” as pictured beneath.
Reaching out to HP, the corporate informed us that there’s “no present help” for Xbox One with the Reverb G2. The itemizing is probably going an error, although it’s nonetheless up and visual as of the time of this writing.
Xbox VR help has been rumored for a very long time in a single kind or one other. The Reverb G2 is made in partnership with Microsoft (together with Valve), so a partnership to deliver the package to console would make sense. Another excuse the itemizing is probably going a mistake is that solely the Xbox One is talked about within the app itemizing, and never the newer Xbox One S, Xbox One X, Xbox Collection S or Collection X consoles. Nevertheless, if the unique Xbox One mannequin can help VR content material, then the newer One fashions and the following technology Collection fashions ought to hypothetically have the ability to as properly.
Supporting VR can be a large shift for Microsoft, after Head of Xbox Phil Spencer made feedback that no one was asking for Xbox VR and that the Collection X wouldn’t help VR at launch. As we’ve talked about earlier than, with the upcoming Quest 2 and yet-unannounced PSVR 2 headsets developing, now could be the time for Xbox VR to turn out to be a actuality.
Whereas the appliance itemizing is particularly for the Reverb G2, that doesn’t rule out the potential of connecting different VR headsets to Xbox consoles both. That being stated, Flight Simulator will launch VR help solely for Home windows MR headsets this Fall, and the Xbox launch of the title continues to be forthcoming. Xbox VR might take an identical path, with unique help for Home windows MR to tie in with the launch Xbox of Flight Simulator across the identical time.
