Microsoft Is Working With Valve To Create An Industry Standard For Developing Virtual Reality Apps And Games


At the PC Gaming Show yesterday, Xbox chief Phil Spencer shared more news about the future of PC gaming on Windows 10. While Microsoft announced that they are partnering with Valve related to VR development in Windows 10 during the E3 keynote, they didn’t provide more details on it. Phil provided more details about it during the PC Gaming show interview. Microsoft believes the PC is the best place for VR development, and they are working hard to make Windows 10 the best platform for VR gaming.

They are working with Valve to create a Universal Positional Tracking API, an industry standard, enabling developers to create VR apps and experiences more easily across a variety of platforms and devices.

In addition to partnership with Valve, Microsoft last week announced their partnership with Oculus VR. Every Rift that is sold at retail will include an Xbox One wireless controller and wireless adapter for your PC. Also, gamers will be able to stream games from their Xbox One to the Rift headset through a Windows 10 PC.
