Oculus promises ‘more products’ from Samsung partnership

The CEO and founder of Oculus VR has revealed its relationship with Samsung is far more optimistic than just the Gear VR.

Brendan Iribe said, as reported by Cnet: “We’ll work closely with Samsung to develop more products.”

Iribe proffered the juicy titbit at the Startup Nations Summit over in Seoul, South Korea.

He continued: “We successfully launched the Gear VR with Samsung this year and I’m sure we will continue close relation with Samsung, as always.”

Unfortunately, the VR don didn’t detail the exact Oculus/Samsung roadmap he had in mind, but there are two clear routes they could go down.

The first is actual hardware design – we already know Oculus helped build Samsung’s Gear VR headset, but there’s no reason why they couldn’t help manufacture peripherals, or even a Gear sequel.

The second is software. A few months ago, Oculus revealed it would be co-producing several games that would debut on Samsung’s Gear VR.

With Oculus VR’s input on the software side of things, we could see a solid VR platform conceived as a result of the partnership.

Iribe also used the occasion to offer some advice to starting up a start-up, putting plenty of weight on the importance of company narrative.

“You need to be clear about your vision and make brave story-telling,” he explained, adding “Story needs to be developed continuously.”

Samsung’s Gear VR is set to land next month, while the Oculus Rift consumer edition should hit shelves early next year.
