Well, yes you do, Facebook-owned Oculus said today as it rolled out achievements for the Gear VR and the Oculus Rift.

The idea, the company said, is that users will be able to track their own progress in various games and other VR experiences, as well as those of their friends. They’ll also be able to see what their friends are doing in virtual reality.
