Oculus Has Steam-Like Platform Called Home
Buy your VR games, view scenes, and discover what your friends are playing while you are wearing the headset.
During Oculus VR's Rift press conference on Wednesday, the company announced that it is creating a platform for game distribution similar to Steam.
Called Oculus Home, the platform will house all of the virtual reality games that are compatible with the Rift headset. Unlike Steam, however, Home works with the headset so that you do not have to remove it to launch, buy, or discover games. Home will also have a social component: you can see what your friends are doing and view their favorite games.
Game pages also feature scenes from the games, which Oculus says will allow users to look around and get a feel for them before purchasing.
