Microsoft announced a new partnership with Oculus this week to include its Xbox One wireless controller with every unit of the upcoming Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. However, back in Redmond, Washington, the team behind Microsoft's HoloLens actually used their own headset to watch the Oculus Rift press event in San Francisco.
This was revealed as part of an interview by International Business Times with Microsoft's Xbox head Phil Spencer. When asked how the new partnership with Oculus will affect the development of HoloLens, Spencer said:
The Oculus Rift will also work with the upcoming Windows 10 update to the Xbox One, which will allow users to stream Xbox One games to their PC and watch them on the headset. Spencer stated:
Microsoft is expected to talk more about their HoloLens efforts in gaming as part of E3 2015 next week. Windows Central will be attending the event in Los Angeles to bring first-hand reports on Microsoft's announcements.
