Oculus Now Sells Individual Touch Controller Replacements

Oculus quietly added a new product to the Oculus Rift accessory lineup. The company now allows you to order individual left and right Touch controllers—even if you’re probably better off buying two anyway.

A few months later, Oculus cut the bundle’s price down to $99. Oculus released the Touch controllers as a pair,…

Oculus Rift Now Supports Tracked VR Objects For Mixed Reality Recording

Oculus released documentation that explains how to configure your Rift and Touch hardware for mixed reality recording. The company is closing the gap between the Rift and the Vive.

Though if my experience is anything to go by, the games may not run well enough to make…
