Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One game streaming feature will be expanded in the Xbox App for Windows 10 to the Oculus Rift on December 12, 2016.
According to the American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington, Oculus Rift owners will soon be able to use the new Xbox One Streaming service to Oculus Rift App. The gamers will be able to play titles such as: “Gears of War 4”, “Forza Horizon 3”, “Halo 5: Guardians” along with other backward compatible Xbox 360 games and more titles that will be released next year.
All of this will be done over the Xbox One Streaming service to Oculus Rift App, which will become available next month. Likewise the current game streaming setup for the Windows 10 Xbox App, the new Oculus Rift App will allow you to stream games from your Xbox One console directly to the Rift headset over your home network.
Microsoft has made a pretty good move by bringing virtual reality to the Xbox One console via the Oculus Rift. Even if it is not a headset created especially for the mentioned console, we can clearly say that this might work and there could be a good amount of gamers that will finally purchase this expensive headset.
So, if you are playing games on an Xbox One console and you have some money to spend on an Oculus Rift headset, then we suggest you to try out the new game streaming in VR starting on December 12, 2016.
We have to remind you the sales on the Xbox One console are not going so well. This might not only boost the sales on the Xbox One console, but also on the Oculus Rift headset.
Do you think that this VR service will be used by the Xbox One gamers?
