The VR (virtual reality) platform has made leaps and bounds in today’s market, with major names such as Sony jumping on board with their PS VR technology. Today Microsoft has announced their partnership with Oculus to allow the streaming of Xbox One screens to the Oculus Rift VR headset. This will allow the Oculus Rift headset to be used as a personal TV screen to play your favorite Xbox One and Xbox 360 Backwards Compatible titles.

While this is an amazing feature, and a step forward in unlocking the full potential of VR, it’s user base is most likely going to be small. In order for the Rift to connect and work with your Xbox One Console, it must first be connected through a Windows 10 PC. Add this to the fact that as standard Oculus Rift retails at $600, the amount of people who will actually be able to utilize this new feature will be extremely limited. So if you want the ability to have your own personal screen to game on, it’s going to cost you about the same as buying a 60 inch TV.
