It is always hard in the wake of the kind of tragedy we all experienced this week to try to be business-as-usual, because well, it's just not usual.

The HP Windows Mixed Reality headset will also come bundled with motion controllers to allow users optimum Windows Mixed Reality experiences.

Microsoft announced the deal alongside a number of other developments as it outlined its commitment to mixed reality at an event in San Francisco.

Touching on philosophy briefly, he proclaimed that, "Computers will empower us to renegotiate our very contract with reality", going on to reiterate the point by saying, "Our very sense of reality is set to be transformed". "A revolution where we immerse ourselves in virtual worlds of our choosing and we accomplish seemingly impossible things while making lasting memories with the people we love", said Kipman.

It remains to be seen whether WMR will truly take off, but Microsoft seems to be all-in. However, the game's multiplayer still turned out well, adding in some interesting new modes and features that brought more depth to the experience.

The Windows Mixed Reality experience with the Samsung HMD Odyssey has been created to give users the very best experience right out of the box.

In the post-game carnage report, players can see just how well they did back in the shooting gallery and Cortana will appear to display their rank. Ross said it's, "Only scratching the surface of what the potential of a Halo MR experience could be".

Samsung HMD Odyssey will be available for $499 starting October 17. If it wasn't abundantly clear already, this is not an actual Halo game, so don't go in with the expectations of it being one when it does release.

Alanna Cotton, Samsung USA VP and GM, introduces the Odyssey on the Cliff House rooftop. Shipped together with a pair of WMR Motion Controllers, the headset can be obtained in United States at Dollars 499 (about RM 2,110) this coming November although it is not known at the moment whether Samsung is willing to release the headset in Malaysia or otherwise.
