VR is continuing to play a big role in gaming, and from the looks of it, Xbox is taking a big piece with it.
The company has announced via the official website that its partnership with Oculus Rift is going to farther lengths. Starting Dec. 12, Oculus Rift owners can easily stream the content of their Xbox One libraries to the VR device via the Xbox One Streaming to Oculus Rift app. Best of all, the app is offered for free
"At Xbox, we're continuously exploring new ways for you to get the most out of your gaming experiences by providing the choice to play how you want, where you want and with whomever you want. With the launch of Windows 10 and the Xbox app, we first delivered the ability to stream your Xbox One games to your Windows 10 PC over your home network—and now, we're bringing that experience to life, in partnership with Oculus, completely for free."
The app will let the Xbox One get connected to the Rift using the home network. From there, the video output can be streamed onto the headset, which them allows the players to enjoy immersive VR experiences, Citadel, Retreat, and Dome.
More than the Xbox One, the Windows 10 is also a great platform to experience this VR feature. Oculus Rift works natively with Windows 10, and it also makes use of the DirectX 12 technology for better graphics, fast frame rates, and excellent performance.
This is a great experience for the holidays, and hopefully, the start of the massive expansion of the VR technology and experience in gaming.
