"By combining our physical and digital worlds, we believe mixed reality is the next step in the evolution of human computing", Myerson said in the blog post. When bundled with motion controller, the headset will cost $449.

In addition to releasing the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on October 17th, Microsoft also revealed that Windows Mixed Reality headsets will be available to purchase starting on the same day from partners such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo. We'd certainly hope so.

As one of the biggest first-party drivers of its hardware in the past, Microsoft will no doubt be hoping that Halo can once again do the same for its new hardware platform. The Windows 10 Creators Update, which is also known as 1703 (for March 2017) did not start rolling out until mid-April.

Worries are already mounting over whether or not Microsoft will attempt another walled garden ecosystem for the software, similar to what they attempted to do with Games For Windows Live; or the disabille manner in which Facebook attempted to corner the market with the Oculus Store.

Mixed reality is the term Microsoft uses to describe software that covers both augmented and virtual reality.

As part of the update we will deliver an evolution to the photos experience that will let you tell your story like never before using photos, videos, and 3D effects; enhancements in gaming, security, accessibility, and immersive new experiences made possible by Windows Mixed Reality. Considering that Microsoft confirmed the date today, Lenovo might edit the release a second time to add the official date to it again. Last month, it moved testers onto separate programmes so it could ensure a stable version when Fall Creators Update was ready for release.

Even though it has only been four days from the previous release, namely the build 16275, Microsoft launched yesterday the build 16278 and hopes that this decision will offer users a more enjoyable Windows experience. Microsoft will also be tossing in a universal clipboard, one that allows you to copy paste things back and forth between phones and PCs. For more analysis of Microsoft, visit the IBD Stock Checkup.
