Oculus in talks with MSI over potential VR cooperation

Posted on Monday, September 26 2016 @ 14:08:56 CEST by


Over the weekend, a lot of media sites made a great buzz about the political antics of Oculus founder Palmer Luckey as it was discovered that he had donated $10,000 to Nimble America, a pro-Trump group dedicated to proving "shitposting is powerful and meme magic is real". Other than funding an anti-Clinton billboard in Pittsburgh, it's not really clear what Nimble America has actually produced.

Taken aback by the backlash, Luckey apologized on Facebook and explained he supported the organization because he thought they "had fresh ideas on how to communicate with young voters through the use of several billboards." He also stressed his actions were his own and do not represent Oculus. I guess this is another example of the danger of mixing politics with business, when you pick a side you're always going to alienate some of your (potential) customers. In fact, some small developers said they would cease supporting the Oculus Rift.

Anyway, getting back to business, DigiTimes wrote last week that Oculus is looking to enter a partnership with MSI to co-develop virtual reality backpack PCs. Earlier this month, MSI showed off its VR One, a VR backpack developed on cooperation with HTC. Now Oculus wants to get in on the action too.
Since Oculus has been cooperating with Microsoft to promote its VR products, a possible tie-up with MSI will help Oculus to expand sales in the gaming notebook segment, said the sources. MSI has established a partnership with HTC to promote sales of its gaming notebooks bundled with the HTC Vive HMD devices as well as some VR games in Japan starting October.
