Halo 5 Developer Gets Oculus Rift DK2

The Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display’s second development kit (DK2) started shipping last week, with a number of developers lucky enough to already receive their kits. Many of them are indie teams that have been set straight to work on their own VR compatible videogames while others will be buying it simply to experience VR technology. 343 Industries’ David Ellis is likely in the latter category.

The story is too old to be commented.

While VR is exciting, the companies who are keen to bring us these "experiences" need to do a really good job on justifying the cost. Especially if it requires a headset and a camera device.

inb4 someone comments ''OMG HALO WITH OCULUS?!?!?''

No, that's not going to happen.

If MCC came to PC, then sure, Halo would be Oculus compatible.

Yeah doubt they actually use it to make a game

Ladies and gentlemen. The future is here. What better way to start than with a triple AAA title of such magnitude!

MSFT owns a chunk of Facebook. Facebook owns Oculus. MSFT needs an answer to Morpheus IF it's successful. Oculus already runs on Windows. Makes ALOT of sense. But I don't see this taking off till we can send 1080p to BOTH eyes. X ONE would need some kind of add on to more than double it's performance, unless Dx12 and cloud are real. I wonder if MSFT can use Kinetic to better track body movement in VR.
