Oculus says that over a hundred more games are coming to Oculus this year.
During GDC16, Oculus provided jurnalists a hand-on experience with the Rift as well as some devo games. Obviously, the Rift hardware needs some extra tweaking, i.e. there is roonm for improvement in the pixel density. However Rift seems to workd great in terms of head tracking and latency, so expect a smooth experience as you look around, without interruptions or motion sickness.
Oculus also today introduced the new Oculus Home on Rift.
Designed from the ground up for VR, it’s evolved significantly since its launch on Gear VR. Through Home you can explore your library, discover new content, and connect with friends in VR.
You’ll also be able to explore the platform from the Oculus desktop app. The app lets you customize your Rift and browse the latest content in the Oculus Store.
VR is very important for Facebook, and has been regularly promoted by the comppany's Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg himself.
