Microsoft has teamed up with Oculus to package an Xbox One controller with every Oculus Rift VR unit when it releases, adding familiar control over the games played using the headset. The Oculus Rift will also support the upcoming Windows 10 update to the Xbox, where gamers will be able to stream games from their Xbox One to their PC and play them on the Oculus Rift. It won’t necessarily be in 3D, but they promise it will at least provide a mighty big screen to play your games on.
If they can somehow figure out a way to stream the games in 3D to the PC for a virtual experience vs just the movie theater screen approach, that would surely take the games one step further for Xbox fans, but we will just have to wait and see what the future holds.
Meanwhile, while the Oculus’ San Francisco press event was streaming online, the team at Microsoft responsible for the HoloLens used the HoloLens to watch the event by streaming it via a holographic representation of a TV screen on their wall.
