Oculus Rift will be available for pre-order by the end of this year. However, it will only reach buyers by early 2016. This has been confirmed on a blog post by Oculus. While Oculus hosted the Oculus Rift June Live event sometime back, details about the new releases and availability was made public only now.
The blog posted today mentioned that Oculus Rift will be based on the comfort, immersion and presence of the prototype Crescent Bay. It will also come laced with an improvised tracking mechanism as well as support for standing and sitting experiences. The June event did highlight that physicality will be revamped.
What’s Up With Oculus Rift?
Oculus Rift is highly anticipated because it will be able to stream games from the Xbox One and allow gamers to enjoy their own virtual playground. This idea appeals to many.
Compatibility with Windows 10 adds to the benefits of the Oculus Rift. It will also be compatible with a lot of games by next year, the company has said. Oculus will be pumping in $10 million for new games for the VR headset.
The Surprises In Store
It was announced that the Oculus Rift will not have its own controller. However, it will come with the hyped Xbox One Wireless Controller following a partnership with Microsoft.
This is just the beginning of more good things, including the arrival of Oculus Touch sometime in the future. Meanwhile, the controller will work on a matrix of sensors and haptic feedback.
