on June 10, 2014 11:24 AM

Jason Rubin, who’s resume includes on working on games like Jak and Daxter and Crash Bandicoot, was added to talented ever-growing team of Oculus VR.

The former President of THQ will be working on Oculus “First-Party initiatives”. We can assume his job will involve bringing over original content to the Rift headset. This is a huge get for Oculus VR since Rubin has shipped over a dozen games and knows how to get games done and most importantly, released.

There have only been a handful of times in my life where I saw something that I knew would change everything. The awe-inspiring tech Oculus is building is a portal into an incredible world that my daughter will one day consider to be normal. The moment I put it on, I wanted to help define that future.
