Friendship: OCULUS helping SAMSUNG on their VR Headset

Oculus Rift.

Corporate friendship! More like “mutually assured market dominance!”, but let me think of rainbows. Rainbows firing straight up my ass, rocketing out my cock in an ejaculation-prism that wows everyone in the football stadium. Wait — where were we? Oh! Samsung and Oculus totally jerking off one another in the VR market.

We’ve heard rumors that Samsung is working on a VR headset, which should really come as no surprise. What is a surprise is that, according to Engadget, Samsung has help from the big guys: Oculus VR.

Engadget’s unnamed sources say that the project is a split in which Samsung will handle the hardware, while Oculus takes care of the software. It’s apparently a tit-for-tat where Samsung gives the guys at Oculus early access to OLED screens, and in exchange Samsung gets early access to the latest Oculus dev software.

So why is Oculus helping out a competitor? According to Engadget, the Samsung headset will have a strong media focus, leaving the Oculus Rift proper room to shake it up in the gaming space. And to further differentiate the pair, Samsung’s headset is said to use Galaxy phones for its screen, which would make it a cheaper, if less technically competent way in to the world of virtual reality. Of course, such an approach would also have distinct advantages, like using a camera’s rear-facing camera to get glimpses of the outside world. [Gizmodo]
