The Oculus Rift seems to be making quite the splash since its release. many people have been talking about the device and where it can take video games in years to come. However, wherever the Oculus Rift may go, consoles won’t be going with it. While speaking with Edge, Oculus VR CEO Brendan Iribe said that while they do love consoles, they are more interested in PC and the next generation of mobile gaming.
“I love consoles 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,” Iribe said. “It’s the innovation, and how fast cellphones are now improving – where we’ll be with the next Galaxy or the next iPhone compared to where consoles are. Those things are almost doubling every year, compared to a console that’s just stuck it out for eight years – it just makes us very excited. There’s a lot of improvements that can be made on the hardware side for VR that no-one’s doing yet because it’s a new thing. The mobile rate of innovation is going to be able to make a lot of those improvements.”
