Hot on the heels of our exclusive reveal of Microsoft’s Enterprise VR Headset, we’ve received these supposedly leaked images from their forthcoming consumer offering, ‘Project Neo’.

Update: As funny as this April Fools article was back in 2014, Microsoft has since officially announced their forthcoming entry into the VR market with ‘Project Scorpio’

Microsoft Enters the Metaverse

These images were sent to us by someone claiming to be based in the Microsoft VR development team who wishes to remain anonymous.  He claims that Microsoft has already begun to show off Project Neo privately to developers to drum up excitement. Details are scarce at the moment, but we do have the following specifications:

    Oculus Rift & HTC Vive:
    110 degree field of view

    37 degree field of view

    That is an absolutely MASSIVE difference.
    Even the PSVR is significantly better.

    It’s not looking good for XBox One, good thing this is only a dev kit…

      Look at the date of the article. 1st April 2014. It’s a two and a half year old April Fools story.

    Wasn’t Neo a Playstation thing?
