The Oculus VR press conference was chock full of new information about the Oculus Rift, but one announcement in particular stood out: the Facebook-owned company is partnering closely with Microsoft.
"I'm Phil Spencer, head of Xbox. And I'm excited to be here to announce a partnership between Microsoft and a leader in virtual reality, Oculus," Microsoft's Phil Spencer said.
When the Oculus Rift ships early next year it will come with an Xbox One controller, will stream Xbox games and is described as working "natively" on Windows.
