Joystiq Streams: Virtual interplanetary with Elite: Dangerous on Oculus Rift

Sponsored Links


Admit it: You want to see a grown man shake his head back and forth, talking out loud to no one, pretending to fly a spaceship. The fact that you also want to see Elite: Dangerous, the long-in-development sequel to David Braben's foundational open world space simulator, is just icing on the cake. Sure you'll get to see what it's like to duke it out in tense spaceship dogfights. But what really matters is that you'll see Xav de Matos (@Xav), bobbing his head back and forth to an invisible rhythm like he's listening to some phantom TLC album, playing the game on an Oculus Rift.

We'll be streaming Elite: Dangerous via Oculus Rift starting at 4:00PM EST on Joystiq.com/Twitch. Come down to the chat and ask Xav how it feels to be a totally real spaceman. Don't worry, Anthony John Agnello (@ajohnagnello) will be on hand to make sure Xav can at least hear your questions.

If you like seeing grownups pretend to be space pilots, follow us on Twitch. This is kind of our thing. If you want to know precisely when to tune in, Joystiq.com/Twitch broadcasts every Tuesday and Thursday like clockwork, but following us is the best way to know when we go live.
