With the popularity of first person games on consoles, you’d think that the Oculus Rift would be a sure bet for the Xbox One and PS4. Though according to the development team, it’s not a focus right now while the team works on PC and mobile support.
Growth in mobile is one reason consoles might not get Rift support
Speaking in a recent interview with EDGE, consoles aren’t growing like the mobile market right now, and it’s a smarter play for the company to focus on PC.
“I love consoles,” said Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe. “But internally we’re a lot more excited about where mobile’s going to go, and being able to plug it right into a next gen cellphone. Those things are almost doubling every year, compared to a console that’s just stuck it out for eight years.”
There’s still no official date on when the Oculus Rift will arrive at retail, nor have the company announced a price for the virtual reality headset. Though when it does launch, don’t expect the Oculus VR goggles to work on your Xbox One or PS4.
