Microsoft held an event last week where they made an announcement about the release of a bunch of Virtual Reality headsets for Windows. The company also revealed the partners that will be making the VR headsets namely Asus, Dell, Lenovo, HP, and Acer.

Unlike existing VR devices like the Vive and the Oculus Rift, Microsoft’s VR headsets don’t require a powerful gaming PC but still offers different range of experiences. According to Microsoft’s HoloLens lead Alex Kipman, the upcoming range of VR headsets are capable of tracking the rotation of your head and its position in space.

Moreover, Microsoft’s offerings will be more affordable at $299 as starting price when they arrive next year.

Folks at Microsoft didn’t say much regarding the specs of the upcoming VR headsets. They did promise to reveal more at the Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) events next month. One of will be held in Shenzen, China on December 8-9 and the second one will be in Taipei, Taiwan on December 14-15.
