$3,000 HoloLens Development Edition launches in March

Next month will see developers finally get their hands on Microsoft's augmented reality platform, HoloLens.

An announcement accidentally posted ahead of embargo on Fortune (since pulled, viaReddit) revealed that the HoloLens Development Edition will open for pre-orders later today (February 29th) ahead of a March 30th release date. The kit will cost $3,000.

Three new games will be bundled with the hardware to showcase its prospects for gaming: Young Conker (a spin-off of Rare's foul-mouthed squirrel series developed by Asobo), crime drama investigation title Fragments (also produced by Asobo) and RoboRaid (pictured), a sci-fi first-person shooter which was previously shown off under the name project X-Ray.

Develop has lots more details.
