Sure that's possible I was just commenting on the author's views which is that a VR war has begin in the console space which as I said earlier isn't true yet.

I never said it couldn't but as of this partnership atm it isn't. Which is why I said "VR console war has not started yet."

"What I am asking is can't developers now make VR games specifically for the Xbox One now that it has VR support from Oculus?" - No because it's not an input device for XB1 like the XB1 controller or kinect is. You're not controlling anything when you put the Oculus on to play XB1 streamed games.

For VR games to happen it needs to be an input so devs can design games around it.

"Now, with its announced partnership with the Oculus Rift, Microsoft has possibly struck a decisive blow that could bring it back to relevance in not just this console war – but the NEW console war that is shaping up over VR devices. "

You do know this VR war doesn't exist because Oculus is not an input device for XB1 like Morpheus is. This is completely one sided in the console space. This is a battle between Sony's solution and PC compatible ones. Also VR ...

No because you are playing XB1 games as is not VR games. All that is happening here is streaming from XB1 to Oculus. Given it isn't an input device for XB1 there isn't anything to develop for.

Nitrowolf2 explained it better.

In what way???

Morpheus -

- VR games developed for headset

XB1 experience

- Play XB1 games within a virtual environment through the headset.

As in you're not getting a true VR gaming experience as you would will Morpheus, Rift or Vive

"How is this getting overlooked." Because it's stupid maybe?

What is the benefit to streaming XB1 games to a headset then playing said game from a virtual environment in the headset?

Controller is a big win for me though.

"This essentially means that Xbox’s One’s answer to Project Morpheus is indeed Oculus Rift." - No it doesn't. All this does is stream XB1 games to Oculus Rift in a "virtual cinema" meaning you're still playing XB1 games designed for traditional gaming not VR games.

It's a stupid idea IMO. I mean what benefit or reason would you want to play your XB1 games through a headset that is inside a virtual environment. Really doesn't make any sens...

"after all they say it a Forza killer." - No that was a quote from VG247. http://www.vg247.com/2014/0...

"They compare Driveclub with Forza 5 and even Horizon which is a sandbox racing game so it fair to compare them." - When was this done?

"We reached out to Microsoft for comment and they informed us that "Forza Motorsport 6 will run at 1080p and 60 frames per second on Xbox One, and you will be able to learn more about the game at E3."

Bluepoint Games - Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

Naughty Dog - Uncharted 4

There is a reason two different teams are working on it. Plus you add the fact the Uncharted 4 beta doesn't sound like something that was completely planned with the "Access to UC4 beta MP while available". One team needs more time to fulfil their vision.

"Ignorance is bliss i guess." - It sure is because you apparently don't know what a franchise means.

"????????.. needed to make the list look good." - Facts tend to do that ;)

Just because they are phone games doesn't mean they are not part of Halo as a franchise after all if it was not it wouldn't have halo in it's name or branded as a Halo game.

"it’s like comparing gran turismo to need for speed" - Maybe if they were both had "Forza" in their name sure.

Forza Horizon is still part of the Forza franchise as it's a spinoff to the main one. Even if you want to exclude Forza the point still stand...

That's their plan.
"I just hope they don't really only ever make Gears of War games." - Well don't hold your breath ;) He basically said something along the lines of - "We want to be known as the gears of war studio like 343 is known for Halo."

I do agree they shouldn't just be a gears studio especially funny enough given it was a far cry from what they were hoping to do before.

After the studio's rebranding, st...

From big publishers/Devs yh. I think the last time a big publisher/Dev introduced a game with pure gameplay was GTA V?
