Kicking off 2022 in Games

Announced at the The Game Awards a few minutes ago, it looks like the big Oculus news out of the show is the collaboration between the VR hardware maker and Harmonix, who are working together to bring Rock Band into the VR space in 2016. That means actually standing in front of a virtual crowd and playing that loud rock music that the kids are all into. We didn't get an exact release date for the Oculus Rift or Rock Band, but this is pretty cool news. Check out the announcement video after the jump.

Although it's light on actual game footage it does feature Oculus Rift creator Palmer Luckey, in a surprisingly fun video. You can tell that this is a passion project for all involved. Coming to Oculus VR we can all assume that this will be a PC game.

I don't get how its coming to Oculus Rift though when its not a platform. I mean, does this mean its coming to PC? Or that Occulus Rift is coming out for consoles?

It means a version designed specifically for the Rift.

It means they are making it an Oculus/facebrick walled garden exclusive, for no reason other than they will pay Harmonix not to make it compatible with other devices you put on your face, like the HTC Vive. Basically your typical big business anti-competative behavior when you realise you are probably going to market with the inferior product.

Yeah, but it currently only exists on console, which means they're either making Rock Band for PC, or the Rift is coming out for consoles. Either of those I find more interesting than the actual Occulus stuff

it's coming to PC and is being made by oculus themselves so don't expect it to work with other VR devices. :/

YES! This is amazeballs in itself (well the PC thing).

I never really thought about this being a possible outcome - a whole s***load of games that they might end up getting going for the PC just so they can do it on Rift on PC. So that is pretty exciting.

Also, someone with a Rift needs to do a video of them rocking out and headbanging and then having the Rift fall off their head.
