Virtual reality is widely considered to be the future of gaming. With the Oculus Rift, Palmer Luckey and his associates have created the world's first high quality virtual reality head mounted display that can sell at a reasonable price. Using many smartphone components, Palmer has been able to make a feature-packed headset that would have been unthinkable to find for under 20K just a year ago. After endorsements from John Carmack and gaming industry notables, interest skyrocketed, and now the company is shipping Development Kits to interested parties. The consumer version is not expected to ship until 2014; but it will be quite a bit more advanced and with better graphics than the current developer versions. The price is expected to be in the low hundreds. Initially, the Rift will work with PCs and then mobile devices - Iphones, Android etc. According to the company, console support is not a priority at this time.... though rumors persist of a PS4 version in the works.
Games we'd like to see on the Rift ASAP: Everquest Next, Planetside 2, Far Cry, Crysis, Hitman, Mass Effect, Company of Heroes, Final Fantasy series, Metro, Skyrim, World of Warcraft, Tomb Raider, Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, Portal, Deadpool, Fallout, Max Payne 3... heck we'd love to see ALL our favorite games on it.
We are looking forward to the release of the Rift and believe it to be the next revolution in gaming as well as offer incredible possibilities in many areas. We take pleasure in bringing you the latest software and news for this exciting device.
