Now you can buy games without taking off your Oculus Rift

Oculus VR unveiled a storefront for the consumer version of the Oculus Rift on Thursday, allowing players to try and buy games without ever taking off the headset.

During the company's first press conference, Oculus Vice President of Product Nate Mitchell unveiled Oculus Home, a storefront for gaming that will activate "as soon as you put on the headset."

Players will also be able to see what other games their friends are playing, or other titles available in the storefront. Mitchell said they had to consider the unique problem of how to give users the best experience of the game they were interested in purchasing.

The shopping cart will function inside the headset, but a 2D option is also available for anyone who wants to manage Oculus Rift games outside of VR.
