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. Allow sorting / filtering of the Wishlist

    Just like the sort and filter options when a user browses "All" titles in the Store, allows users viewing their Wishlist to sort their wishlist e.g. A-Z, Date Added, Price etc

  2. Separate pages for DLCs

    It would be great if we could see, comment and rate DLCs.

    Now, we can only see there is a DLC.

    We cannot even search for it.

    It took me 10 minutes to find Echo Combat DLC and it was in a situation when I knew it exists, it is related to a speciffic game and others are playing it already.

  3. 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 !!

  4. Allow users to hide installed apps from the Store listings

    When browsing the store, it is handy to know that you already have an app / game, but when you have a large number of installed games, it can detract from browsing new content.

    Please give the user an option in the Store to hide installed applications from the Store listings, so that the user can concentrate on browsing new content.

  6. 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.

  7. Show on store listings a flag or icon to indicate that it is in your wishlist

    When browsing the store, it would be useful to know that particular items are in your wish list already, so that you don't go into them again when you've already added them to the wishlist.

  8. option to hide apps you don't like

    I for one am not a big fan of zombie type games, and have never really wanted Killing Floor or Arizona Sunshine, but they're constantly on the front page of the Store, where I have to see it every time I log on, even though I'm not interested. An option to select an app you want to hide in the store and click "not interested" to clear it from your queue would be nice.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  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. 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.

  13. Allow launching of installed apps from the Store

    When browsing store listings, it would be useful, for installed apps, to be able to launch them there and then, instead of having to go to the library.

    There have been a number of times when I've been browsing the store that I decided to stop browsing, and have wanted to launch an installed game there and then.

    Currently the user has to go to the library, and find the game they want to launch. This takes longer, as the user was already on the app / game they wanted to launch when browsing the store.

  15. A hardware link box with built in super-sampling

    I noticed Pimax is developing their HMD with built-in SS. I was thinking if a device like the HTC link-box could be developed that had this ability it would sell like mad

  16. Add the user library to the Store

    The Core 2.0 Store is awesome compared to classic Home (Core 1.0). Bigger pictures make items easier to see and look more attractive. But why not add the user library to the Store?
    Basically all items in the library are coming from Store - and then users didn't have to pull out Dash to access their library.

  17. Make it possible to start directly in Store instead of Home

    Normally I use Store and my apps - only. Having to always load a giant ship and scenic view of the Mediterranean Sea feels like overkill and annoying when I just want to go to the Store.

    Why not add a switch to Dash allowing users to decide if Home or Store should be loaded as default, when putting on the HMD or when exiting a game or app?

    Also the new Store is awesome, and has a simplistic design like classic Home (Core 1.0), thus users missing classic Home may enjoy to have the new Store set as default…

  18. PLEASE stop Store autoloading inside headset

    PLEASE stop Store and other dash screens autoloading inside headset.
    Whenever I put the headset on, Home starts loading, but then also the STORE and other Dash screens load. Can you please allow a setting that just loads the Home without the Dash screens.
    I am trying to setup VR demo's at a sales event using Home as starting point. Now I have to constantly click away the Store screens using the touch controller whenever a participant puts on the headset.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
