The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset is currently supported by some PC games. It has yet to become a widely adopted peripheral that games are designed around, but with its virtual reality capabilities, we don’t deny that it would making gaming a much more immersive experience. While talks of bringing it onto the console are being considered, it seems that Oculus Rift are more excited about the possibility of bringing the VR headset to our mobile devices instead!
Speaking to Edge, Oculus Rift’s CEO Brendan Iribe was quoted as saying, “I love consoles but internally we’re a lot more excited about where mobile’s going to go, and being able to plug it right into a next gen cellphone. It’s the innovation, and how fast cellphones are now improving – where we’ll be with the next Galaxy or the next iPhone compared to where consoles are.”
It definitely sounds like it could be fun and with handheld consoles such as the Nintendo 3DS offering up a slightly different style of gaming compared to regular handheld gaming devices like the PS Vita or our phones and tablets, we can only imagine what a big difference the Oculus Rift could make. What do you guys think? Would you like to see Oculus Rift support brought to mobile devices?
