Microsft has been busy bringing new features that bring Xbox and PC together. While Xbox One games can be streamed on Windows 10 PCs, Microsoft has announced that it will be launching a new app that will allow Oculus Rift owners to stream their Xbox One games to their headsets.

Microsft announced that the app will be absolutely free and will connect the devices through the home network and once connected the players will experience their games in a new way.

The new Xbox One Streaming to Oculus Rift app connects to your Xbox One via your home network. Once connected, your console’s video output is streamed to your Rift headset and projected onto a massive screen in your choice of one of three immersive VR environments: “Citadel,” “Retreat” and “Dome.”

Microsoft also noted that users will be able to stream their favorite games such as Gears Of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, indie titles and much more.

Rift owners will be able to stream their Xbox One library to Rift with the new Xbox One Streaming to Oculus Rift app, including fan favorites like “Gears of War 4,” “Forza Horizon 3” and “Halo 5: Guardians,” the biggest sports games, indie darlings, Backward Compatible Xbox 360 games, and more titles coming in 2017.

The app to bring the streaming functionality for Oculus Rift will be available on December 12, 2016 through Oculus Store.

Also, Microsoft has announced that they have been “teaming up with Oculus to offer an Xbox Wireless Controller included with every Rift purchase.”

Speaking of Xbox, Phil Spencer recently shared his thoughts on Nintendo exclusive games coming to Xbox One specifically a Mario game. According to Spencer, he would not mind a Mario game releasing for Xbox and said he “would love to see Mario on Xbox”.
