Originally announced back in June 2015, Microsoft is finally going to start streaming Xbox One games to the Occulus Rift. Rift owners will be able to download a free Xbox One streaming app from the Oculus Store, and any console output will be streamed directly to the Rift headset starting December 12th.
Microsoft is also supporting the Rift natively in Windows 10, and the company continues toship its wireless controllers with the Rift as part of its partnership. Microsoft is now pressing ahead with its Project Scorpio console plans, and the company is expected to detail its VR-ready Xbox in the new year. Microsoft’s partnership with Oculus has so far been limited to this game streaming and Xbox controller support, but with Microsoft increasingly investing in VR it leaves the door open for more direct support with Scorpio and beyond.
