Nearly 18 months after it was inception announced as a feature, Oculus Rift owners will soon be gifted to stream Xbox One games directly to their virtual reality headsets. The mug arrives as a free update to the Oculus Rift PC app on December 12.
The feature won’t balk Xbox One games into VR experiences, but instead it lets you play them in bearing of a huge virtual display inside the headset, similar to how Netflix currently act ons. Naturally, you need an Xbox One and a stack of games to get started, as well as an Oculus Ca rison headset connected to a Windows 10 PC.
Minimum network requirements aren’t maintained, but it’s fair to say that the best experience will likely be over Ethernet degree than Wi-Fi. Users will also have the choice of cityscape their virtual screen in one of three different environments: «Citadel,» «Lose ground,» and «Dome.»
Microsoft has been pushing VR hard of late. The com ny is assembling 3D ca bilities for virtual reality and augmented reality headsets into Windows 10 with the Initiators Update and is working with the likes of HP, Dell, and Asus to create VR headsets call of £250/$300. The system needed to run those headsets should be cheaper, too—premature software builds require only DX12 integrated graphics to run.
