Xbox One owners will be able to play their games in a 'virtual cinema' within the Rift, using the Xbox One controller that comes in the box. This is thanks to Microsoft and DirectX 12 with Windows 10, so we should see some massive collaborations between Microsoft, the PC, Xbox One and the Oculus Rift moving into 2016.
