Minecraft Confirmed for Oculus Rift
This is amusing.
Back when Oculus Rift was in its early days, coming off of a successful crowdfunding campaign, Minecraft was announced for it. Then Oculus was bought out by Facebook, and Minecraft creator Notch, in a fit of fury at Oculus selling out to a large corporation, canceled the Oculus version of Minecraft.
Then Minecraft sold out to a large corporation (Microsoft), and now, that large corporation has announced that Minecraft will be coming to the VR headset of the other large corporation. That’s right, Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition will be coming to Oculus Rift.
The Windows 10 Edition of Minecraft will be launching in Spring 2016 on Oculus, which means that hopefully, it will be available right at the official consumer launch of the Oculus Rift headset- it is the one thing that really could make Oculus Rift take off, and VR as a whole, since Minecraft is one of those mass market brands that can sell anything.
