The highly anticipated Virtual Reality headset Oculus Rift seems to have been under the radar for quite a while now, and while most of us had consciously forgotten about its existence, the team behind them were readying it for a release date.
News have finally emerged of the VR headset being available for retail purchase in the first quarter of 2016. Yup, we’re talking about consumer-based models that will be available to the entire gaming world.
The Oculus Rift headset was already available for distribution for quite a while now, but only to developers and testers, and it cost quite a bit due to highly limited production. This is the first time news of the retail version of the headset have surfaced.
There are also suggestions that this nifty piece of technology will be available for pre-order later this year. You can probably expect something or the other mentioned about the Oculus Rift in this year’s E3.
The consumer version of the Oculus Rift will be based on the ‘Crescent Bay’ prototype model, which is shown in the above picture.
As of moment, there are no exact details of the pricing of the headset, nor do we know much about the technical aspects such as the hardware, software, or compatible games.
News of such information is expected to arrive in the coming weeks, so make sure you check back with us.
