Many Microsoft Stores in North America now receiving Minecraft VR demos

Posted in:

Minecraft is a game that fans have been wanting to see in VR since the Oculus Rift first hit Kickstarter all those years ago. It’s a game that begs the player to immerse themselves in a world that’s full of imagination, possibility, and endless creativity, so it only makes sense that the sort of immersion offered by VR is a perfect fit. It’s no doubt the dream of many gamers, young and old, to step into the virtually infinite world of Minecraft and start punching trees with Oculus Rift levels of immersion.
