100,000 Oculus Rift Dev Kits Have Been Sold – CEO Reveals

According to CEO Brendan Iribe, Oculus Rift has sold 100,000 development kits. This does not mean there are 100,000 developers out there.

Virtual Reality is one of the emerging markets of our time and probably the most innovative VR device available today is Oculus Rift. Companies like Sony, Microsoft, LG and others are trying get a piece of the market share, meanwhile Oculus has already sold 100,000 DK2 developer kits.

The news of this achievement was revealed by Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe on Twitter.

Over 100k DK2’s and tons of Gear VR’s in the wild — can’t wait to see what the community creates. Everyone’s a pioneer!

It is to be noted that this doesn’t mean there are 100,000 developers out there for Oculus Rift. It’s highly likely that numerous units were sold to gamers who are looking for a taste of the VR headset.

Oculus Rift development kit 2 was available for pre-order back in March 2014. Since then, it has set a standard for Virtual Reality products and has emerged as one of the most refined VR experiences available.

Full release of the product is yet to be dated, but one report suggests that we may see a public release in April 2015.

Oculus Rift was announced a while back and its about time we see a public release. However, I really hope that they will price the product in accordance with an average user’s budget.
