It’s official. The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset will be available to buy as a full product during the first quarter of 2016.
Oculus VR announced the news Wednesday morning, but have held back on both the price and the exact release date.
However, what they did promise was the shipping of “compelling content, a full ecosystem, and a fully-integrated hardware/software tech stack designed specifically for virtual reality.”
Oculus VR raised over $2 million back in 2012, which allowed the company to build $300 kits that they could hand out to developers interested in virtual reality technology. And after the product garnered some serious hype online, Facebook saw a window and eventually bought them for $2 billion. The rest is history.
Ahead of the news of an official release, OVR have promised to show off the polished product at this year’s E3 gaming convention, which takes place in Los Angeles between June 16-18.
