The Latest from Oculus Connect 3!
« on: October 05, 2016, 03:24:36 pm »
I'll try to keep this updated as news comes in!

Wednesday
-Mark Zuckerberg teases more info on Facebook/Oculus Social coming tomorrow!
-Trailer for Landfall, a new multiplayer RTS
-Trailer for Vox Machinae. Some of you may remember the demo for this game back in the day
-Trailer for Dead Hungry, a Touch game where you feed zombies hamburgers
-Trailer for Enigma Sphere, a co-op Touch game that is being compared to Portal 2's co-op.
-Day 1 Daily Intel Summary via Oculus Twitch
-Carmack Teases Inside-Out Tracking Announcement During Keynotes

Thursday
-Touch pre-orders open October 10th. Price is $199. Launches December 6th.
-You can buy a third sensor for $79 to get roommscale.
-New (better, apparently) headphones available for $49.
-Asynchronous Spacewarp announced (Timewarp that works for positional tracking as well). This effectively lowers the minimum spec requirement for Rift.
-Oculus Avatars, Parties, and Rooms announced. Bunch of social stuff! Launching on GearVR in a few weeks and Rift at the beginning of next year.
-Free games bundled with Touch: The Unspoken and VR Sports Challenge. RoboRecall will also be free, but isn't releasing until early next year.
-RoboRecall trailer, what BulletTrain has turned into!
-Oculus shows inside-out future tech. States a standalone Rift is the future.

Friday
-Touch Reviewed (CNet)
-Tested Hand-On with Lone Echo
-Full Facebook Social Demo
-Oculus WebVR (Beginning of the Metaverse). Reminds me of JanusVR.
-Superhot Hands On
-Tested VR Minutes Podcast: OC3 Special

Day 1, as predicted, was pretty slow. There were some vague teases of announcements for tomorrow - most noticeably Facebook Social, which possibly will become a key part of Oculus' platform. There were also some trailers released for upcoming games. Most devs were just checking out demos. John Carmack did critique GearVR apps for a few hours. All the big stuff is coming tomorrow!
