Microsoft’s partners have officially announced that their Mixed Reality headsets will be on sale starting from October. And Microsoft revealed that the first headset device will be available on October 17, which also appears to be the release date of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Many major players already showcased their upcoming Mixed Reality headsets for Windows, including Acer, Dell, Lenovo, HP and Asus. The most affordable Mixed Reality headset will be the one from Acer, priced at $299, followed by HP’s device priced at $329; while Lenovo and Dell will price theirs at $349.

The price tag of the upcoming headsets points out that manufacturers aim to compete with each other, but even more with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Asus’ Mixed Reality headset is set for the spring 2018 release, and it will be priced at $535. That makes Asus’ device the most expensive one in the range, and also the latest one to arrive. We’re sure the company has its own reasons for this strategy.

Microsoft puts big hopes into its Mixed Reality platform, and aims to make it the next big thing. Although presented as mixed reality, this platform is actually entirely virtual. It simulates a working environment, where you can run Windows apps and games, and perform various tasks in a completely different surroundings. It remains to be seen how users will receive it.
