Oculus Rift Can Stream Xbox One Games Using A PC



Every unit of the Oculus Rift will come bundled with an Xbox One controller, but Oculus’ partnership with Microsoft doesn’t stop there. The two companies also announced today that one will be able to stream Xbox One games to the Rift.


Since the Oculus Rift offers native support for Windows 10, it makes it easy to offer functionality between the Xbox One and the Rift, Microsoft said. In order to stream games from Xbox One to the Rift, users will require a PC.


While it might be surprising that Oculus and Microsoft would partner up this way, it actually makes sense. Back in 2007, Microsoft acquired an equity stake in Facebook—which owns Oculus—worth $240 million.
