We don't know anything about Direct Reality, but it could be a HoloLens-inspired HMD that plugs into the Xbox and/or PC with Windows 10. Microsoft's upcoming Project Scorpio console will include VR support, but we don't know if Direct Reality will add to that or not just yet.

Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference happens on Sunday, June 11 @ 2PM PT.
