Oculus executives and team members announced several additional updates and partnerships for Oculus Rift, including a partnership with Microsoft Xbox to include a wireless Xbox one controller and adapter with every Rift and native compliance with Windows 10. Rift users will be able to stream content from the Xbox directly to goggles.

Oculus also announced a system software for Rift called Oculus Home, an Xbox-like portal to all Oculus media. In Home, users can take a VR preview of a game before purchasing it, interact with their favourite games, and keep track of what friends are doing in their separate virtual realities in real time. Home also has a 2D interface to manage the system on a computer.

The final Oculus Rift headset will have two OLED screens where the developer kit had one to help remove motion blurring and stuttering. It will also have a wide field of vision and adjustable lens distance to compensate for each user's unique eye spacing. Rift can be adapted for people who wear prescription glasses, and is lightweight, although CEO Brendan Iribe did not provide a specific number.

Oculus highlighted several partnerships in gaming, including CCP Games and Gunfire Games.
