    Microsoft's, "we're too good for VR, let's shoot for AR," tech Hololens recently had some interesting details leak about it, including the hefty dev kit preorder price of $3,000.

    Also revealed is the fact that these development kits will be shipping out to developers around March 30th, which means we could very well begin seeing games developed for the platform soon.

    Due to the lack of many augmented reality experiences out there, Microsoft will also be including a few interesting applications with the headset, including a game called Robo-Raid, Skype for Hololens, a mystery game called Fragments, and a game interestingly featuring Conker from rare, titled Young Conker.

    If you would like to read more about the features and tech aspects of the hololens, please click the spoiler below.

    Hololens Specs and Tech

    The future of Hololens is entirely a mystery at the moment, one that honestly doesnt look to be as future proof and as interesting as the fast approaching Virtual Reality. Only time will tell if Microsoft opting to be the odd-man-out will be a benefit or a disastrous misstep on their part.

    That's not important right now. What's important is what they've done to my childhood role model.

    Keep in mind everyone, this is devkit price, not actual RETAIL price. The occulus devkit was just as expensive when it was going around.

    What? Conker started as a light hearted character both in Diddy Kong Racing and in his Gameboy Color game. Making him a family friendly character again is just bringing him back to his roots.

    Is that squirrel really supposed to be conker? It can't be....

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I played conkers live and reloaded(remastered bad fur day) and it's a shame they did conker like this. Conker is an alcoholic that likes squirrels with big breasts and is addicted to money,now he is a kids character smh.....

    It's young conker though,so that was before he got into drinking/degeneracy. I can't believe Big Reunion was cancelled game looked really good.

    What in god's name did they do to Conker? How dare you Microsoft! Please refrain from ever touching Conker again! :(

    But still, the Original Xbox remaster of Conker's Bad Fur Day was pretty good (I know a lot of folks don't like it but I do) so some good came out of it.

    I still think AR has a LONG way to go. The Hololens doesn't look at all appealing to me. And that Render of Conker needs putting down.

    You seriously didn't expect this mindblowing childhood science fiction tech to be priced anywhere near the VR Competition didya?

    It's overpriced, and it's playing on those nostalgic childhood idea of future innovation to pull it off. It's cool, but not $3,000 cool
