Oculus and Microsoft Teaming up for Virtual Reality Gaming

Before today, I had no desire to get into virtual reality gaming, or to ever buy anyone’s VR peripheral. That has all changed today. At their E3 press conference, Microsoft announced a partnership with Oculus. Each and every Oculus Rift VR headsets sold will come with an Xbox One controller. Why would we need an Xbox One controller?

Oh yes, I forgot to mention: all Xbox One games will be playable on Oculus via streaming with Windows 10. There was an awkward moment during the presentation when it was announced that Microsoft and Valve had begun a new relationship. After making that announcement, there was a notable quietness before a few awkward cheers.

Regardless, this is a big deal for Microsoft and Xbox One owners. Will you take advantage of Oculus?

The Hololens demo of Minecraft was ridiculous. It is gaming I would have never believed I would see. My only questions with these two devices is the ultimate cost to gamers. A product priced too high will not sell to the masses. VR will live and die on the pricing model for the first few units.
