It’s Finally Time for Xbox One on Oculus Rift!
Virtual Reality is quickly becoming a key goal for console manufacturers. Ever since Microsoft announced Project Scorpio, they made it a point to mention a full immersive VR experience on the upcoming powerhouse console. However, we aren’t going to have to wait long to play our Xbox One games on Oculus Rift. Here’s what the folks at Xbox said about their next push to VR:
Rift owners will be able to stream their Xbox One library to Rift with the new Xbox One Streaming to Oculus Rift app, including fan favorites like “Gears of War 4,” “Forza Horizon 3” and “Halo 5: Guardians,” the biggest sports games, indie darlings, Backward Compatible Xbox 360 games, and more titles coming in 2017. The Xbox One Streaming to Oculus Rift app is available for free in the Oculus Store on Dec. 12.
So it looks like if you have a Rift already you are all set. As it may not be a full VR experience, it is a more immersive way to play for sure. There will be 3 separate backgrounds to use when playing on the Rift; “Citadel,” “Retreat” and “Dome.”
An adapter may still be needed if you don’t own one of the new Bluetooth integrated Xbox One controllers but other than that it seems pretty cut and dry. How do you feel about this continued partnership? Do you care about VR on home consoles? Let us know in the comment section below!
