At this point it's unclear this the Halo VR experience may be an entirely new release or whether the next game in the Halo series will just include some VR-only features.

For these prices you unfortunately don't get almost the level of refinement offered by the Rift or Vive. Developers may have to retroactively add Windows VR support for each game, so be aware that these new headsets may not work with all VR games straight out of the box. Odd and not so great. While Valve have committed to Windows VR support, it is not clear if all pre-existing VR games will automatically work with these new headsets. Indeed, the firm claims the headset can be up and running in 10 minutes.

One of today's big announcements is that Steam games will be playable on the Windows Mixed Reality platform, a big, if not expected and necessary, win. Having to guesstimate where to place the base stations or sensors for proper tracking is tedious at best, frustrating at worst.
They also completely occluded your vision and were used for experiences that have been traditionally been referred to as virtual reality. "We are on a mission to help empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more, and one of the ways we are doing that is through the power of mixed reality".
