System Message Prompts Xbox VR Speculation

A system message suggests Xbox VR support might be coming soon.

Microsoft might have an Xbox VR set or VR support in the works if a new system message is anything to go by.

The info comes from IGN Italy’s Giovanni Marrelli (via VGC), who received a message on their Xbox saying “the VR headset needs to be updated” after attaching the new Xbox Wireless Headset. 

Xbox currently has no VR support, and Marrelli thought this could be some kind of error. However, they followed the update prompt and received another message and a button prompt making the possibility of Xbox VR support clearer: “An update for the VR headset is available” and “Update VR headset.”

Whether a proper Xbox VR set is on the way remains to be seen, though Microsoft has made no comment clarifying the messages since the story went live on IGN Italy, and was later picked up by other outlets.

Former Kotaku Editor-in-Chief, Stephen Totilo, tweeted that Xbox public relations representatives called the message “inaccurate.”

However, as of this writing, there has been no official word from Microsoft or the Xbox team. 

It wouldn’t be too surprising if Microsoft plans on VR support of some kind. Sony recently announced a new PlayStation VR set compatible with the PlayStation 5, featuring a streamlined design and next-gen improvements. Stay tuned for more in the coming days.
