Windows 10 + Oculus Rift = Virtual Reality Gaming Awesomeness

Oculus VR, a leader in virtual reality, shared some details on what fans can expect to see when the Oculus Rift launches in 2016 earlier today at event in San Francisco and Head of Xbox Phil Spencer joined their CEO on stage to discuss a new partnership with Microsoft.


Through this new partnership, we’re working with Oculus to make gaming with the Oculus Rift awesome thanks to Windows 10 and the Xbox One:

The Oculus Rift will work natively with Windows 10. Windows 10 will make it easy to set up, jump in, and have an incredible VR gaming experience. Made-for-VR games will leverage DirectX 12 to unleash the full capabilities of new Windows 10 graphics hardware for top performance and the fastest frame rates. Simply put, Windows 10 is the best platform for playing games on the Oculus Rift.

You can play Xbox One games on the Oculus Rift. We’ve already shared that you’ll be able to stream your Xbox One games to your Windows 10 PC or tablet. But we’re also bringing the same Xbox One streaming capability to the Oculus Rift too – a feature that’s only possible courtesy of Windows 10. You’ll be able to play your favorite Xbox One games like Halo, Forza, Sunset Overdrive and more right on the Oculus Rift’s VR screen.

Every Oculus Rift will include an Xbox One controller at launch. With the new Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows that we unveiled last week included, you can play games on the Rift using the Xbox One controller wirelessly right out of the box.

For more on today’s announcement, read this blog post from my colleague Will Tuttle on Xbox Wire.
