sourceInstead of the original two USB 3.0 ports, those wanting to use the Rift to its full potential will now need four USB ports (three USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0).
Oculus CEO Palmer Luckey replied to the thread, saying the new requirements assume the player is "using Touch and an Xbox One gamepad at the same time." It was announced earlier this year that every Oculus Rift would include an Xbox One controller.
"Many people will be able to reduce port utilization with hubs, but your experience will vary by computer and hub," said Luckey. "We want to be totally honest with the maximum-use scenario so people can prepare and not have to swap ports around depending on the game they play."
