  1. Bigger screen view for watching preview videos

    Why do I get this really awesome positional video experience but get the view of a 50" screen from a distance instead of a bigger theatre view to enjoy a preview? We should have the VR equivalent of a full screen option for viewing preview videos and screenshots. You have this whole spheric 3D environment and yet we don't have a ported 3D video preview option or immersion preview for games in VR? Even screenshots should be 3D window shots of the VR games and experiences. Instead we're doing it like we still are on happypuppy.com.

    • Adding a games' 'Movement Method' category, to allow Sorting when browsing games.

      When browsing all games you can currently sort games by 'popularity, A-Z, Comfort Rating, Release Date, User Rating and Price. Adding a filter that allows you to select your preferred Movement Method will be a great way for users to browse games that prefer certain movement options.

      Full Locomotion, Teleport, Wave shooter or Static.

      Adding a filter that allows you to select 'Supports Oculus touch' would be useful too please!!!

      I hate being interested in a game and having to look through reviews to find out there's no free locomotion!

      • Hire Me

        I've been developing ideas for VR since I was 10 years old. I have a bag of tricks for implementing better VR video/audio, loading sequence concepts, scalability improvements, and much more. I am in the market for employment and I believe I could bring you folks into the present with current hardware if you gave me a chance!

        • Anyone else lost the ability to watch 3D movies?

          2/18/2018 was the last time I was able to watch any of my movies purchased in Oculus Video or even watch trailers. I noticed this on February 24th when I tried to watch a recently purchased movie.

          All other functionality of Oculus Video seems to work and I am able to stream movies from at least one other site using other applications with a virtual desktop option.

          It would be nice if we were able to sort available movies as well as those purchased.

          It would be great if more 3D movies were made available to purchase.

          • Please don't "optimize" the downloads and updates anymore.

            When downloading or updating a game, the download is "optimized" in phase 1 of the process. I do not know what the optimization goal is, but if it is time, it blatantly fails.

            This "optimization" is so slow that I downloaded and installed a ~20GB game in Steam while Oculus did just start downloading.

            Experiment: I have keys for Elite:Dangerous for both Steam and Oculus Store. Started the installation on two PCs, one Steam and one Oculus, on a nominally 120Mbit shared internet connection via local Gbit ethernet. Oculus finished "optimization" when Steam was well over 70% downloading.

            When I…

            • I would have thought the Rift and VR in general was wide open to using voice commands. A simple set like "Run" "Walk" "Re-load" just a thoug

              Voice commands for games! Simple command structure like "Run" or "Walk" Or re-load" for now, with the option to increase the vocabulary as and when!

              • Removing free apps from app list

                Add the possibility to remove free apps from the list (if we didn't liked it for example).

                So we dont have the library full of apps we don't want to run again.

                • Make it possible to make purchases for friends (like steam has).

                  It would be good if we could make purchases for people in our friends list.

                  • Add games to Wishlist while in VR

                    First, thank you for the new Wish List feature.

                    However, I was surprised I couldn't add games to my Wish List while browsing the store in VR (maybe I missed how to add it?).

                    Thanks !!

                    • Switch to the Store more quickly

                      The new Store is gorgeous (!) but takes ages to load. I'd like for there to be a quick-switch option that immediately launches the Store, not slowly builds it up.

                      Thanks!

                      • Small payments wishlist

                        Small payments wishlist. Let's say you have a bunch of friends. they should be able to give you say $1 and it goes into an Oculus wallet (similiar to steam wallet) and once you have enough you can buy a game. (or pay the remainder yourself).

                        It'd be handy to help a friend buy a game, but not pay all of it, or if a group of friends for example has a multi-player game and wants one of their just-bought-an-Oculus friend to join, they can pay some of the cost.

                        • Give discount for games I own on Steam

                          Find a way to give a deep discount if I already own something on Steam. As it is if I own something like Raw Data or Onward on Steam I don't see value in paying full price to buy it again on the Oculus store, but I would see value in 80% off so I could move my library cheaply to the Oculus store and not have to use Steam at all.

                          • Add Search and Mutli-User Store. Allow users to walk around store with friends. Developers can create their own rooms.

                            Please add search to the store. voice search seemed to work well in the old store.

                            Add multi user virtual store, so users can walk around and shop with friends. Perhaps developers can create there own environments/rooms that users can walk into.

                              Sure would be nice if this was available before XMas. Also putting a delivery date on the gift would be cool.

                                • Don't hide prices for applications that you already own

                                  It would be nice, if when you view the store page for an item, if it would still show you the price/discount for things that you already own. This makes it easier to recommend good games to friends (hey, my favorite game is only $10!), and it will help out when game gifting is inevitably added. I understand why it is currently replaced with the 'Start' option, but then it should just put the price somewhere else on the store page.

                                  Also, woo, the first feedback!

                                  • Virtual Store/Mall to walk around

                                    Could have a virtual store or mall to walk around so we can pick up games, throw them into our cart and checkout like that. Also if it were a mall each shop could be split into categories, so there would be an action game shop, or a puzzle game shop, space game shop etc.

                                    Also allows companies to have virtual advertisements or their own shops just for their game

                                    • Put 3D panoramas of games in the Store

                                      I'd love orbs with 3D 'screenshots' from games in the store, that you can pick up from the shelf and smash for a small preview.

                                      • Localized prices and currencies for different countries.

                                        Localized prices and currencies is what keeps a lot of people from building a Oculus Store library, every single game is much cheaper to buy from Steam because of the localized prices and currencies that they offer. I think everyone would benefit from this, especially people from outside the USA, Europe and Australia. Thanks!

                                        • Show on store page when friends own an app

                                          Quite simple- show on a store page which of your friends already own the app.

                                          Would incentivise you to buy it more.
