Oculus Touch Supported By SteamVR
A huge news week at E3 was capped by reports that Valve’s SteamVR platform is now supporting Oculus Touch, the forthcoming hand controllers from Facebook. While the controllers are only in the hands of some developers right now, getting them to work with a room-scale game bought from Steam is a big deal as it opens up the Steam library of walk-around VR games to buyers of the Rift.
The relationship between Valve and Oculus is a touchy one, and whether the support will follow through when consumers get the chance to buy the controllers is not known.
Meta got $50 million to build the Meta 3, a new version of its augmented reality headset. Meanwhile the company is still taking pre-orders for its Meta 2 headset.
