Oculus Connect 4 Confirmed For Mid-October

Despite the growing emphasis of VR at Facebook's F8 developer conference this year, Oculus will still have their own shindig.


Facebook's F8 developer conference in April had a heavy emphasis on VR. That's logical given its ownership of Oculus. But that did raise the question about the status of Oculus's own developer conference and if one would happen this year. It appears the answer is yes.

Oculus Connect 4 has been confirmed for October 11-12 at the San Jose Convention Center, although not much else is known at this time. The event is a day shorter than last year, and Oculus did not have an E3 presence this year, so it is likely we will get a few splashy announcements at the event. If you want a heads up on what is coming to the show, you can sign up for updates at the official site.

Last year, we got news about Oculus Touch, as well as some of the games coming for it. We also got a look at some Oculus peripherals and companies that were partnering with Oculus to make their laptops VR ready. Then John Carmack closes with the hard-hitter that VR developers need to start challenging themselves more and not be "coasting on novelty."

Of course, leave it to Asif to address the elephant in the room...
