Oculus Connect is all but wrapped up now, with Oculus announcing that it is making it easier to access VR software. Before today, Oculus Share was where developers and early adopters would go to access VR content, with Oculus Share now becoming Oculus Platform.

Oculus Platform is your one-stop shop for VR content, which offers up everything from 'Home', 'Cinema' and '360'. Home would be your usual place for software, Cinema is where you would watch your movies, and 360 would be left for your 360-degree content, such as panoramic shots from your smartphone. Oculus thinks that Platform will be easier for the startup to offer great games and apps to the future two billion VR users.

Platform will also allow developers to publish content, and once the Rift is off the ground and into the land of consumer reality, developers can make money from their content. This will work the same way that iOS and Android developers make money, but we don't know what split the profits will be, as I'm guessing Facebook would also be involved in this department.
