It appears the partnership between Microsoft and Oculus is finally starting to bear fruit as Oculus Rift VR headset owners will soon be able to stream Xbox One games directly to their device.

The Xbox One Streaming on Oculus Rift app is scheduled to be released on December 12 and is expected to offer a similar experience to the Windows 10 Xbox app. Oculus Rift owners will be able to use the app to stream content directly from their Xbox One console to their headset, which will be presented in a virtual theater with three environments: Citadel, Retreat, and Dome.

The application will only work with Xbox One consoles that are connected to the same network as the PC your Oculus Rift is connected to, which is a similar requirement for the Windows 10 Xbox app.

Unfortunately, don’t expect a true VR experience as all you’ll get from the Xbox One Streaming on Oculus Rift app will only offer a nice virtual setup to play your Xbox One games on. If you have your console set up in a bunker with a view of a cemetery, then the VR theater could be your perfect escape. If you have the ultimate home theater setup with supermodels lining up to play with you, then this might be a downgrade.
