“…Spencer said that virtual reality “experiences” would be built on top of Windows, but didn’t go into details. No mention was made of whether Oculus would work with Xbox console games.”I think this does more for Microsoft and PC (personal computer) games than anything they have done in years, in terms of exciting new things,” Blau said…Microsoft has promised that applications written to work on Windows 10 machines will be at home on Xbox consoles…Oculus founder Palmer Luckey also showed off a “Touch” accessory that will let people essentially reach into virtual worlds to manipulate objects or issue commands with gestures.”You need to be able to pick up a gun from a table, fire it, and throw it away without even thinking about it,” Luckey said.”You can light explosives, pull robots limb from limb, punch garden gnomes… lots of cool experiences.”Oculus promised hands-on demonstrations of titles promised at a major Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event next week in Los Angeles.”
