Oculus Announces Partnership With Microsoft

Oculus announced a partnership with Microsoft at its conference today.

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, took the stage to say that “the opportunity for us to bring our wireless controller, the one that we’ve spent so many years refining, to every Oculus user at launch is incredibly exciting for us”. Every Oculus Rift headset will come bundled with a Xbox One wireless controller and PC adaptor. “The Rift will natively work with Windows 10. And we all know that VR experiences require the highest performance, and with Direct X 12, we believe we’ll be able to create state of the art virtual reality experiences on top of Windows”, he added.


Now, for the kicker: “People will be able to stream their Xbox One games to Oculus Rift”. Halo, Sunset Overdrive, and Forza were said to be compatible.

EDIT: As of now, the Xbox One compatible games will not work in virtual reality. The VR full compability remains unclear, although possible in the future.
