Microsoft announced today that people can now stream Xbox One games (which includes backwards compatible Xbox 360 games) on Oculus Rift.

This is done through the Xbox One Streaming App, and lets players choose from three distinct environments to play their games in. You can read the description for the app below:

With the Xbox One Streaming App, you can play your Xbox One games directly on your Oculus Rift. Connect to your console via the app and watch your games come to life on a huge virtual screen in three immersive virtual theaters. Now you can expand your library of VR games with your favorite Xbox One titles, including Xbox 360 games that are playable on Xbox One. Xbox One Streaming requires your Xbox One console to be connected to the same network as your home PC.
