PC News: Oculus VR Launches a Marketplace for Rift Demos and More

Oculus VR Launches a Marketplace for Rift Demos and More

Now in beta, Oculus Share will one day be the place to download all your Oculus Rift content.

Someday, in the (hopefully near) future, Oculus VR will bring its impressive headset to the consumer market. But for the time being, the company is also focused on helping developers to learn the hardware and start creating compatible software. On Monday, Oculus announced the beta version of Oculus Share, a place to publish and download Oculus Rift demos and games.

Currently, Share is a way for Oculus Rift developers to share content and collect feedback from the community. But going forward, Oculus VR has made it clear the platform will function as a sort of marketplace, like Xbox Live or Apple's App Store. "Oculus Share is the first of many steps we’re taking to build the ultimate virtual reality platform," reads a post on the Oculus blog. "While Share is simply a sharing service today, over the coming months we’ll work toward making it an incredible marketplace for Oculus-ready games, experiences, and applications."

Submissions to Oculus Share will apparently undergo some type of approval process from Oculus VR, in an attempt to "make sure content isn't offensive or malicious." Recently, id Software co-founder John Carmack joined Oculus as Chief Technology Officer, and while there's still no solid date on a consumer Rift headset, be sure to check out IGN's impressions of the latest 1080p prototype.
