On top of that, it still has the old school buttons and analog sticks so you don't feel like you're using a controller that isn't too familiar. The Oculus Touch is wireless, so you're not going to be tripping over cables. The Oculus Touch has three buttons, and an analog stick to use within the VR world. Haptics are also featured, so you can "feel" the things you're "touching" in the VR world.
