More Juicy Oculus Rift Details!

Developers of the Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Gear are stealing the show in the pre-E3 event in a top-secret location at San Francisco. Things are looking good for this year’s E3 with Oculus Rift opening up with a bang, just days before the main event begins.

The finals model of the highly anticipated Virtual Reality set is a noticeable improvement from last year’s Crescent Bay. It’s lighter and a lot sleeker. On top of the visual upgrades Oculus Rift announces its official partnership with Microsoft! 

Could this be a match made in heaven? This partnership is a sign of great things to come I’m sure. With Microsoft’s vast experience in the gaming industry and the success of the Xbox consoles, Oculus Rift is in good hands. To start it off Microsoft will let the Oculus Rift stream Xbox One games. 

The Oculus Rift will be fully compatible with the Xbox One controller. On top of that method, Oculus Rift introduces its own spin on the game pad, the Oculus Touch. This odd-looking concept features two circular controllers that you would hold in each hand. Each piece features two face buttons, a trigger button, and, of course, an analog stick. Its interesting to find out how the developers best utilize the Oculus Touch.

There are bunch of games lined up exclusively for the Oculus Rift. One will take you to a fantasy labyrinth while another will take you the hardcourt in a basketball game. The possibilities are limitless. More on the Oculus Rift will be detailed when it takes the show floor at E3 next week.
