Oculus VR showed off the consumer version of the Oculus Rift in a pre-E3 conference today, but it was accompanied by a bit of a surprise. Oculus VR has partnered with Microsoft, and thus Windows 10 and DirectX 12.
Cue Phil Spencer walking in, licking his lips.
Oculus and Microsoft are teamed up to make Oculus Rift work natively on Microsoft’s new OS, Windows 10. Spencer vaguely explained how DirectX 12 will improve Oculus Rift games.
With Microsoft currently focusing on streaming Xbox One games to PC, inexplicably, the same will now happen with the Oculus Rift. Yep, Xbox One games, streaming on the headset. This sounds at odds with VR games needing to run at 60fps, but there you go.
The consumer version of Oculus Rift will also come with a wireless Xbox One controller.
