Xbox One games will be playable using the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset

Microsoft has just came up with the answer to Sony’s Project Morpheous.

Xbox One games will work with Oculus Rift

Yes, you’ll be able to play Xbox One games on the new Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. During the Oculus press event in San Francisco, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer revealed that users will be able to stream Xbox One games to the headset and play using the Xbox One wireless controller.

While the functionality will be there, the company didn’t share any more details if all Xbox One games will be compatible or just a specific list of games designed to work with the device.

The Oculus Rift is expected to ship early 2016, but the company hasn’t reveal a sort of pricing, however those who want to be among the first people getting the device will have to spend about $1,500, plus the cost of a computer.

This is a great news for gamers and for Microsoft, as the new partnership will help the software giant to compete with Project Morpheus, which is Sony’s virtual reality headset that will launch for PlaySation 4 and Vita.
