minecraft 09-24-15-1

We’ve learned that Minecraft is making its way to the Oculus Rift.

The news was confirmed by Palmer Luckey, Founder and CEO of Oculus, who confirmed the game’s arrival for their HMD at today’s Oculus Connect. The Oculus version of Minecraft will be the Windows 10 Edition of the game.

Further details were not confirmed, but we do know it will be launching in the spring of next year.

Minecraft is also coming to the Microsoft-produced Hololens, their augmented reality headset.

    what was the point in microsoft spending billions on the minecraft IP if they are not going to even attempt to lockdown exclusivity deals?

    Wait.. windows 10 version of the game. You don’t mean the terrible based on mobile one that is filled with micro transactions do you? The one that is bundled into windows 10 and they said wasn’t going to replace full blown minecraft? D:

    I will never understand how Minecraft managed to end up being worth more than AMD. I seriously don’t get why the game is such a mad success.

    Minecraft is already on just about anything and everything that can run it, so not much point in exclusivity, and that’s a good part of why its so popular.

    That’s kind if the point of buying it too, no matter what you’re playing it on Microsoft gets your money, nevermind the merchandise sales. Minecraft has everything from toys and books to candy.
