Oculus Rift S and Rift


Welcome to the Oculus Rift S and Rift feedback forum! This is the location to provide all your feature requests and ideas for the Oculus Rift platform. We're looking forward to hearing from you on the following areas of the product:

  • Dash: Oculus Dash is the in-VR command center the pops up when you hit the Oculus button on your Touch controller. Dash allows you to access PC Desktop apps, your VR Library, and other system settings and services from anywhere in VR.
  • Desktop App: This is the out-of-VR Oculus application on your PC that allows you to do things like browse the store, manage your settings, and view your friends list, among other things.
  • General: Use this category for any feedback that doesn’t fit neatly into one of the other more specific categories.
  • Home: This is your customizable in-VR home where you can show off your unique style and decorations.
  • Store: The place where all VR app purchasing takes place. The Store category covers both the out-of-VR and in-VR stores.
Please do your best to ensure all ideas are original and have not been previously submitted. Thanks for helping us improve Oculus Rift S and Rift!    
  1. Give Store credit for Rift purchases that reference a current owner's personal referral code

    The installed base is already VR's most influential set of advocates, with some hosting VR parties, demoing at offices, or taking their rigs on the road to conferences and events.

    Why not encourage and reward this behavior directly with the "Uber model": give us each a personal code, and when someone buys a Rift using that code, we get a store credit? A meaningful but modest figure, like $20-$30, is still significantly less than your current customer acquisition cost.

    If you want to sweeten the deal, add in a $5-$10 credit for any Go sold using our referral code.

  2. Show which games has achievements on the store page.

    Simply have a tag on the store page that shows if a product has the achievements functionality.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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…

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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 !!

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Just copy/paste the ideas from Steam

    Steam already matured, why not use it?
    Play history
    Friends with the game (and friend game list)
    Related games
    Game's you'd like based on your actual gaming and library
    etc.

  15. Display prices in local currency - old store did this

    I live in the UK. Prior to Rift Home 2, prices were in GBP (£) - now they're in USD ($) and no obvious way to change - this discourages me from buying from the store.
    Can't understand why this is in the old store but not in the beta.

  17. gift

    Allow gifting of store items to people in friends list

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

  18. 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!

  19. Look for pre-existing files while installing a game

    I have the "Oculus/Software/software" folder from my previous installation. when I reinstalled Oculus, I chose another path (D/Oculus apps/) to install games, but all my games from the previous installation are gone. When I reinstall a game from the store, it starts downloading from 0, even if I move my "software/Software" directory to the new D/Oculus Apps" directory. It was over 200GB of data and now it's all gone.

  20. When sorting by user rating, don't put games first than have less then 5 ratings

    At the moment sorting by user ratings doesn't return the best experiences first. Games that have had 1 or 2, 5 star ratings shouldn't be put at the top of the list as that is very open to abuse and I've seen very old games constantly at the top of the list with 1 vote. Only rank games that have at least 5 ratings to more accurately reflect the customer's views.
