Wasn't Samsung and some others supposed to come out with VR headsets this Christmas? There were supposed to be a whole slew of them based on the Windows mixed reality API.

Cold feet perhaps? VR it not trending much at all. Niche fad is niche.
Bring the price and requirements way down, then it may get common place.

Not sure you are as in tune as you think.

First there are tons of cheap VR, with low price and low requirements.

Sales are up YOY. Investment dollars are up YoY. So it is growing, is it an on-fire product? No. What we are seeing is gaming isn't in a crisis that a new format has to come in to save it.

On the high pc-end a unit with all the accessories hit $350 this Christmas and that price is showing it will sell for that.

There should be some quality standalone units coming soon, but I don't really have a personal interest there, others will.
