Xbox

  • Microsoft and Oculus announced a partnership between the two companies. Starting December 12 Xbox One owners will be able to stream their games to an Oculus Rift headset connected to a Windows 10 computer. You’ll need an Xbox One, semi-powerful PC, and Oculus headset which is a lot to ask if you ask us. But if you have all of the above, you’ll be able to see your games on a virtual screen similar to what PSVR owners see when playing regular games on their headset.
