The Oculus Rift needs a dedicated store for players to find virtual reality (VR) content. Oculus VR itself is planning to provide its own solution to this, and that solution is Oculus Home. Oculus VR’s Nate Mitchell announced the service today at the company’s pre-E3 show in Los Angeles, California.
Oculus Home has been built for VR first and foremost and is the go-to point for ‘everything Oculus’. Players will drop straight into Oculus Home when they put on their device. From here they’ll be able to look at their own library or shop for other VR titles. It even includes a VR scene mode that allows players to get a sense of presence without having to buy the full title. A 2D interface for the device is also coming. Mitchell confirmed that the interface will be seen once more at the Oculus Connect 2 developers conference.
VRFocus will continue to follow Oculus Home closely.
