Last week we were supremely teased by the idea of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset coming to iOS. Moments after everyone raced to post this news, and most of the developers I follow on Twitter gasped in excitement, VentureBeat issued a retraction that the Rift was actually coming to Android and not iOS after all. Regardless, it’s still interesting to follow, as I refuse to believe that if the Rift blows up in popularity like I think it will that it won’t eventually come to iOS devices.
Gameloft seems to be racing to being the first “big" mobile game developer to be publicly interested in converting their existing Android titles to be compatible with the Oculus Rift. In the above tweet from @GameloftNordic, Gameloft asks players which titles they’d like to see on the device first. Unity already supports the Rift, so re-releasing existing Unity games to work with the Rift should be as simple as enabling support and coming up with a control method that makes sense.
