Xbox VR will be exclusive to Project Scorpio, leaving the Xbox One behind in order to achieve a "high-fidelity" VR experience using existing consumer VR headsets. 

This is in contrast to Sony who's PlayStation VR headset is designed specifically to use with Sony consoles and will support both Project Neo and their existing PS4 console. While this doesn't eliminate the possibility that there will be Sony Project Morpheus Exclusive VR titles, it does mean that developers will need to develop with the lower end PS4 in mind if they want to reach the largest possible audience. 


We said we’re not going to have console-exclusive games for Project Scorpio. It’s one ecosystem — whether you have an Xbox One S or Project Scorpio, we don’t want anyone to be left behind. Now, with the power and capabilities we have, we’ll be able to do high-fidelity VR. Now, that space, we don’t think of that as console gaming, we think of that as high-fidelity VR, and so with the VR experiences those will be new things that you will get on Project Scorpio

At the moment it seems lightly likely that the Xbox One will support the Oculus Rift as their VR headset of choice, allowing Microsoft to support VR without the need for designing and manufacturing their own hardware as well as gain some more benefits out of their relationship with Oculus. 

All Oculus Rift Headsets are already shipping with an Xbox One controller and some of the latest VR titles like Minecraft are Windows 10/DX12 exclusive.
