Microsoft and Oculus bringing Minecraft to Gear VR

The Minecraft metaverse is going to get a little bit bigger, with Microsoft and Oculus confirming that Mojang's blocky phenomenon will be coming to Gear VR.

Newsbrief: Minecraft in virtual reality is the stuff of dreams for many people, including Oculus founder Palmer Luckey; who called the game the first step towards a "metaverse" at last year's Oculus Connect conference. 

Now it looks like that metaverse is going to get a little bit bigger, with Microsoft and Oculus confirming to Engadget that Mojang's blocky phenomenon will be coming to Gear VR.

Although Mojang had already announced Minecraft for Oculus Rift, Samsung's Oculus-powered Gear VR headset is likely viewed as a more consumer-friendly option, largely because of its smaller price tag

An official announcement with more information, including pricing details, is expected in the near future.
