Adding wireless support is helpful to avoid messy wired setup. A powerful home router is enough to put all the devices online and enjoy gaming on massive screen of the headset. Even if the game is not VR ready, you can get the console projected screen on the headset. Instead VR ready games will bring more controls and exciting gameplay.

A nice support for the Xbox One console owners who are looking forward to try out the virtual reality hardware venture with high end gaming. Streaming capability relies on the network bandwidth, which can result in latency if the hardware is low end.
