OculusVR and Xbox team up for consumer virtual reality

Oculus VR has shown off the version of its virtual reality headset that will be sold to consumers, and revealed it will come with an Xbox One controller. The Facebook-owned company also revealed it is working on its own handheld controller system called Oculus Touch.
The Rift headset will be released early next year. Until now, only a "developer" version had been sold. It will compete with rival VR headsets such as Sony’s Morpheus and HTC’s Vive.
Google has made a more basic entry into the market with its Cardboard product, which uses a person’s smartphone to create a VR effect. The deal with Microsoft means Oculus owners will be able to stream Xbox One games to the headset and see them as if they are being viewed on a huge "home cinema" screen.
