Here's What Oculus Rift Is Going To Look Like

The virtual reality gear is going to be available next year.

Posted on

On Thursday, the Facebook-owned virtual reality company released the first look at what the consumer version of its gear is going to look like, and how it's going to work.


Every Rift that ships is going to come with an Xbox One wireless controller. Additionally, you will be able to stream games from an Xbox directly to the Oculus Rift.


So far, all we know is that this Oculus Rift is going to be available in the first quarter of 2016.

This is the most polished version of Oculus that's ever been made. It looks ready for primetime, but there are a lot of factors at play — most importantly price and content.
