Valve backs the Oculus Rift instead of making their own VR headset

Cast AR project falls by the wayside

There was speculation as to what Valve had up its sleeves in the virtual reality stakes after it put more emphasis on VR in their Steam Dev Days seminars.

As it turns out, rather than making their own, which would probably be awesome, they've turned to the Oculus Rift - which is definitely awesome - as their VR headset of choice.

In fact they were messing around with their own project Cast AR but they let go the main staff members behind the project so that project would now seem to be dead in the water. Valve backs the Oculus Rift instead of making their own VR headset

Valve believes that “The PC will be a hotbed for VR” and it would seem that they are hoping to be at the centre of it with the release of the SteamVR beta this week and their support of the Oculus Rift.
