Oculus Rift consumer model to launch early 2016
Pre-orders will be taken later this year.
Oculus VR has announced a release window for the consumer version of its flagship virtual reality hardware, the Oculus Rift. The company revealed today that the Oculus Rift will ship to consumers in the first quarter of 2016, with pre-orders to be taken "later this year."
Sony's PlayStation 4 headset, Project Morpheus, will launch to consumers in the first half of 2016.
The consumer model of the Oculus Rift builds upon the hardware of the Crescent Bay prototype that was revealed in September last year. The prototype included integrated audio and 360 motion tracking that the Rift will feature, in addition to support for both seated and standing experiences. More details on the hardware, software, input, and games for the consumer version of the Oculus Rift will be revealed in the next few weeks.
