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: “
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.
