The folks over at Take-Two, the publisher of the Grand Theft Auto series, seem to be smitten with the idea of the Oculus Rift after running into the machine at 2014 International CES, according to a report today from GameSpot.

In an interview with Games Industry International, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said that his team enjoyed testing the virtual reality headset during CES and the Oculus Rift only grows on them as they work out some of the remaining kinks.

Oculus Rift was a big smash and wonder at CES, and our folks were very impressed with it,” Zelnick said. “It remains to be seen what we can do with it, but (Oculus) has already addressed some of the big challenges (such as users getting motion sick) that it faced early on.”

Zelnick said that though he didn’t test out the gaming accessory itself, he likes the idea of the Oculus Rift helping gamers further engage in the entertainment experience.

“... I'm encouraged by anything that gets people more engaged with interactive entertainment,” Zelnick said.

The comments come after Zelnick said this week that he thinks mobile gaming will eventually become a player in the video game industry on the whole, but the technology for the sector isn’t “quite there yet.”
