The Oculus Rift is one compelling piece of technology. Skeptical? Read up on Jonathan Leack's impressions of the tech to understand why this could very well be the future of gaming.
Right now the device is only in the works for PC and Android, but that doesn't mean the company is ruling out the possibility of console support down the line. According to Oculus Rift CEO, Brendan Iribe, Xbox One and PS4 compatibility is something the company is interested in.
“We love what both the console guys are doing. I hope one or both of the console guys make VR headsets, or something similar, like an AR headset," Iribe told OXM. “The more that they push into this space, even if it’s a different device, or their own device, a different experience, the more that they’re throwing into AR and VR, the better it is for everybody.
"We just want this to work, ourselves," he added. "We want to put on a headset and for it to be awesome. We’re going to try our best to make the very best experience, the very best VR device. We’d like to see it eventually become compatible with consoles, but right now we’re mostly focussed on the PC side – we’d love them to come up with something.”
