What you need before you begin

According to the official Rock Band VR website, the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One guitar controllers are both compatible. While they use different technology to connect to your PC — PS4 controller uses Bluetooth and Xbox One controller uses the wireless adapter for Windows — the steps required to get everything physically set up are the same.

Touch Rock Band connector

Other than the guitar controller, you'll also need Oculus Touch controllers and the connector for the guitar controller. The connector came with your Touch controllers and can be found in the small box on the inside lid of the Touch case.

To recap, you need:

  • Rock Band guitar (PlayStation 4 or Xbox One compatible)
  • Oculus Touch right-hand controller
  • Oculus Touch Rock Band connector
  • Microfiber cloth
