Virtual reality is the future of gaming, and Microsoft and Valve want to lead the charge. The two video game giants have entered into a partnership to make Windows 10 the ultimate platform for VR gaming.
Microsoft has expressed a strong desire to become a prominent player in the virtual reality scene, having also teamed up with Facebook-owned Oculus VR to have every Oculus Rift unit shipped with the updated Xbox One controller. Shaking hands with Valve brings them one step closer to realizing their hefty goal.

Valve, on the other hand, has been at the forefront of PC gaming for many years with their Steam platform, which serves as a hub for gamers to download the vast majority of PC games. It too has dived head first into the VR scene with the creation of new business unit -- Valve VR -- tasked with creating a unique virtual reality headset.
Speaking to event-goers during Microsoft’s E3 2015 conference, Microsoft Studios’ corporate Vice President of Kudo Tsunoda said that the company is “working closely with Valve to make Windows 10 the best platform for VR gaming.”
Details on the partnership are scarce and it’s not exactly known what each company will bring to the table, but it can only be good things that lay ahead for the fledgling world of VR gaming.
