Oculus has spoken to Sony and Microsoft about Rift for consoles

Could Oculus Rift be compatible with PS4 and Xbox One? Perhaps the possibility shouldn’t be ruled out, if comments from Oculus VR vice president Nate Mitchell are to be believed.

GameSpot reports that Mitchell told the TechCrunch Disrupt conference that the company had spoke to both Sony and Microsoft about bringing the headset next-gen consoles, adding: "We’ve talked to everyone. Anything is possible.

There’s a lot of people right now interested in the VR space. And we’ve said many times that we’re interested in bringing the Rift to as many consoles or platforms as possible. Ultimately, we haven’t announced any sort of partnerships to date. But it’s something we’re always exploring."

The potential fly in the ointment, of course, is that both Sony and Microsoft have VR plans of their own.

Sony’s Project Morpheus VR headset is currently due out in the first half of 2016, meaning it could potentially launch around the same time as Oculus Rift in Q1 next year.

Microsoft’s HoloLens offers a different approach to VR, focusing more on augmented reality, which could in theory perhaps leave the door open to an Oculus partnership? The company has previously said that Xbox One could yet support HoloLens, however.
