Currently, when you step in to Oculus Cinema, you're immersed in a virtual empty theatre. But Oculus always wanted to make Oculus Cinema as close to possible to the real experience.
Luckey told Road to VR that Oculus Cinema will get "multiplayer" features in the coming months, including avatars, and "remote multiplayer functionality." You'll be able to catch a flick with your buddy even if they're hundreds of miles away, provided you both have Oculus Rift headsets.
- Making VR more social is important: when the headset goes on, you're cut off from the real world, but not necessarily the internet. I'm sure that Facebook too wants Oculus to have a strong social component. The consumer version of Oculus Rift is expected to hit shelves in 2016.
