1. Facebook is hosting a virtual GDC to showcase the latest Oculus VR titles. "Facebook: Game Developers Showcase" will take place from today until March 19, at the same time when the Game Developer's Conference would have been held in San Francisco if it hadn't been canceled/postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. The company promises to reveal breaking updates for old games and trailers for upcoming ones arriving on the Oculus Quest and the Rift Platform at the digital gaming event. Virtual attendees can expect to hear the earliest details on new experiences coming to popular titles like Pistol Whip and Beat Saber, although it is not yet entirely clear if the event will feature live-streamed videos. – ENGADGET

2. – The Oculus Quest went back in stock... and already sold out again. 

3. Alison Wonderland has released her 2019 show in VR. Fans of the Australian electronic dance music artist can visit her YouTube channel to view the entire performance in 4K HD 360°, which means you can either experience it via a VR headset, move your phone, or use your mouse to navigate the scenes. On her Facebook page, Wonderland (whose real name is Alexandra Sholler) explained how she hoped this could give her audiences a live music experience to help cope with the worldwide cancellations due to COVID-19: "Wow, a lot has changed since Monday... So I want to do something nice for you guys!!! so excited to release this footage from red rocks so you have something to watch while there are no events going on…. IN 360!!! Click on the link and it’s like we are on stage together. It’s crazy," she said, while encouraging fans to visit her official website to secure tickets for the concerts, which have now been postponed until September. – EDM

5. A Mixed Reality coronavirus explainer with Magic Leap.

6. – Climbinb Half-Life: Alyx’s Citadel in SteamVR.
