No Mac Support For The Oculus Rift Anytime Soon

The Oculus Rift has been pretty much a Windows-only VR headset for now, but given that it is still relatively “early” in terms of the VR space, we expect that more platforms will eventually be supported. So as far as Mac VR gamers and enthusiasts are concerned, we’re sure some are wondering about support for the Mac platform.


ZeniMax Wants The Courts To Halt Oculus Rift Sales Completely

Back in 2014, ZeniMax took Oculus to court in which they allege that Oculus apparently “misappropriated ZenMax trade secrets”, or so they claimed. Earlier this month a jury in Dallas, Texas ruled in favor of ZeniMax where they awarded the company a whopping $500 million in damages.

The Oculus Rift Can Now Be Supported By Lower-End PCs

When the Oculus Rift was first announced, the specs required for a PC to be able to run it was relatively high. Or at least it was high enough to give some gamers pause and at the same time made it out of reach for gamers with lower-end rigs.

Oculus has made Rift owners wait for individual Sensors for quite some time now. The headset needs these sensors to support room-scale VR, a feature that’s already supported by the HTC Vive and is often pointed out in its advertisements. These Sensors enable the Rift to provide similar functionality and the Oculus Store has now been updated to enable customers to purchase the Sensors individually.
