Next-Gen HP VR Headset Listed on Steam, Developed with Valve and Microsoft


A next-generation HP VR headset has been listed on Steam and should be due for unveiling soon.

Developed in collaboration with Valve and Microsoft, the next gen HP VR headset delivers a more immersive, comfortable and compatible experience than the  previous generation. It’s the new standard in VR.

This new HP VR headset (which presumably supports both Windows Mixed Reality and Steam VR, hence the mention of Valve at Microsoft) should be the successor to the acclaimed Reverb model, which is widely considered to be one of the best Virtual Reality devices in terms of image clarity thanks to its high resolution. One downside to the Reverb is its price, however, as it is still being sold for $662 on Amazon for example.

Given that the upcoming next-generation HP VR headset can be safely expected to feature stronger specifications, its price might be accordingly higher. Still, with Half-Life: Alyx just released and going strong so far (92 average critic score on Metacritic, 91 on OpenCritic), it seems the right time to debut a new VR device.
