The first shipment of Oculus Rift headsets sold in within a mere 14 minutes and since then, itís been pretty hard to get your hands on one. But Oculus has announced that there will be a small window of opportunity coming up very soon where prospective buyers will be able to attempt to purchase an Oculus Rift. A very small window.
Insomniac Games has released the first teaser for their upcoming brawling game, Feral Rites. The title is due to release this fall for virtual reality headsets in collaboration with Oculus. The brawler was teased with a short 45-second trailer that gives gamers a taste of the action.
Oculus has finally spoken up about why itís taking so long to get Rift VR headsets out the door, explaining that a shortage of components is to blame for the rocky launch of the new piece of hardware.
The VR future is getting off to a slightly slower start than expected, all thanks to a shipping issue that's kept many folks from receiving their Oculus Rift when expected. The good news, however, is that the Oculus team is addressing the problem and it could mean some potential savings for folks who ordered the device.
Oculus has announced that they are delaying the Oculus Touch, the companion controllers for the Rift. They are delaying the launch of the Oculus Touch wireless controllers into the second half of 2016, so they will miss the first quarter launch window that the Oculus Rift will have when it finally becomes available on the consumer market.
Watch your back, Oculus. Valve and HTC are about to take the plunge into the virtual reality market with a futuristic headset called Vive.
One of the most highly anticipated consumer electronic devices set for release in 2014 is the Oculus Rift, the virtual reality headset with head-tracking and motion capabilities. It's finally doing 3D virtual reality right and games have finally come up to par to make it worthwhile. However, it may or may not be worthwhile given that it's estimated to cost $500.
Meteor Entertainment has announced today that Hawken, the free-to-play MMO coming out for PC at the end of this year, will support Oculus' new 3D headset called Rift. The headset made quite a wave on Kickstarter a short while ago but the Kickstarter project had nothing to do with turning it into a consumer product, instead it was about making a devkit available so companies like Meteor Entertainment could announce that games like Hawken could support it.
Oh crap, usually when we write about Kickstarter products we have to persuade gamers to want to throw money at the project, but in the case of the Oculus Rift 3D Headset the darn thing already met its goal and then some, shortly after it launched today on Kickstarter.
