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. Merge guest account and oculus account

    When I ordered as a guest, Oculus had me sign up for an account immediately following my order. I assumed the order I just placed would be linked to my Oculus account, but it was not. Instead, I ordered as a guest. I would like the ability to link my "guest" purchase to my Oculus account and merge the two together.

  2. No envios a México?

    Que mal que no hagan envíos a México, envían a todas partes del mundo y aun así estando mas cerca no lo hacen, perdiendo ventas seguras.

    Oculus, please add stars and number of reviews to the website store so I don't have to click each game to see it

  4. Purchase Transfers from SteamVR to Oculus

    I was considering buying the Oculus Quest but buying every game on SteamVR and Oculus Home would be way to expensive for me, is there any chance you could partner with your developers to provide Oculus keys from past and future Steam store purchases? or let us send you a picture of the applicable purchases.

  6. Have real life game accessories in the store and the ability to order it straight from the headset to your house

    Like in the movie 'ready player one' the Oculus store should implement real-life accessories like haptic items and additional sensors, wires, treadmills and more. It would also be cool to be able to pick up and look at the things that we wanted to buy inside the headset and then order it straight to our house plus it would be useful to have all the accessories and especially haptics and treadmills in one place instead of having to spend hours on the internet trying to find them.

  7. I would like to see some afterpay options on your website, to provide the option for users to pay in installments

    I myself have the issue of not having enough money upfront for an Oculus headset. However, I would 100% organise an Afterpay or Zip Pay account so I could afford to start my VR gaming experience. I imagine there would be many more people considering purchasing a headset if they had some alternate payment options. Even Paypal's Buy Now, Pay Later option would be good to have available.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. gift

    I tried to buy a game for a friend only to find out it was literally impossible. It's been years since Oculus has been a thing, there is no excuse for this. What the actual ****?

  14. Offer gift cards or at least a way to purchase store credit.

    I need Oculus gift cards (or store credits) to be a thing. I’m a teacher and I’ve applied for grants for an Oculus Rift in my classroom. Now that I have it, I’m applying for more funding to purchase more games to use in science class, but will have to request a Steam gift card, as that’s the only thing available that the school can purchase for VR games. Such a shame. I’d much rather purchase and play games directly from the Oculus store.

  15. Oculus Quest versions of games on pc

    Hi, I am a quest user and I think that the Oculus Quest has shown what is truly possible with low end vr headsets. But what about pc? I'm not talking about high end pc's that can run vr, I'm talking about the other ones that have more power than the Oculus Quest but less than the high end's. What if you want to play something similar to the quest but with better graphics and framerate.? Why not play the Quest version of the game on your pc? With customization to the graphics in the games I feel like this…

  16. Buying an app for the Go you shouldn't have to pay again for the Rift

    I think if an app is available on more then one platform someone only needs to buy it once.
    If someone buys the Oculus Rift S why buy the Oculus Quest or Go if you would have to buy some games twice. Like "Spice and Wolf"

  17. We need more filters and custom views in the Oculus Store


    1. I want to be able to see ALL items in the store, there does not appear to be a "see all" link for this anywhere, only in sub categories.

    2. I want to be able to filter by Oculus Touch only.

    3. I want to filter not just by user rating but by minimum ratings.

    4. There is no filtering till you search for something specific, why?

    5. I also want more additional filters on top of filters, so not just user rating but new games as well, or new specific games. The filters need to be more diverse.

  18. 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.

  19. Resizing und placement of store windows

    Until we can walk around in the store please make it possible to position and resize the store windows like the windows in Dash to make them easier to read and use.

  20. Defective unit? Honor system.

    Amazon.com has an "honor" system in place so in the event that you receive a defective item, they will automatically resend a new unit. The user is then obligated to return the defective unit within 30 days or be charged the cost of an additional unit. This ensures less downtime and more fun for all! Oculus has a great thing going for it, and I want to see this company continue to grow and flourish

    I think that idea would be pretty neat since a lot of users will actually put off replacing defective parts because it means days or…
