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
