The Oculus Rift compatibility with Xbox One was revealed at Oculus VR’s own press conference, Step into the Rift, San Francisco, back in June. Since then there has been some debate amount what content would be viewable via the connected systems, and so VRFocus recently sat down with Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey to get to the facts from the source. The short answer? All of it.
“Everything that runs on an Xbox,” states Luckey, when asked what kind of content will be viewable via the Oculus Rift. This includes movies and video content, the Xbox One dashboard and friends list, and of course videogames. The streaming service is based on that which is offered between Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs now, but will make use of the Oculus Cinema application.
Luckey discusses this content and the Oculus Cinema application in detail in the video interview below, as well as the potential for multiplayer gameplay and the unique kind of gameplay experiences that Xbox One and Oculus Rift compatibility can offer. VRFocus has more coming from Luckey later this week, and will keep you updated with any further news on the Xbox One’s virtual reality solution.
