Bigscreen Lets You Stream Console Games In VR

Bigscreen Lets You Stream Console Games In VR
November 10, 2017

It’s not every day you get to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (2017) on a movie theater-sized screen, but the developers at the social screen mirroring VR app Bigscreen have written a handy guide on how to play Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4 from the comfort of your own virtual theater.


The Bigscreen team has already published a rough guide on how to stream games from consoles like Xbox One and PS4 through a few platform-specific apps, but because the Nintendo Switch doesn’t have any such streaming app, you’ll need a capture card to port in the console’s signal to your PC.


You can catch a more comprehensive guide here which goes into greater detail. Here’s a quick recap of what you’ll need to get started to start streaming you console into VR.


- A capture card (like this Blackmagic one) for Switch, Remote Play app for PS4, or Windows 10 Xbox app for Xbox One


- One of the above consoles


- An HTC ViveOculus Rift or a Windows Mixed Reality headset


- A powerful desktop or laptop


- Optional: A second screen to make setting up easie
