After several years of speculation — really since the thing first hit Kickstarter in 2012 — Oculus VR has finally announced a consumer version of its Oculus Rift PC-based virtual reality headset. The first units will begin shipping to buyers in the first quarter of 2016, with preorders starting “later this year.” By that point, the Rift will hopefully fulfill the promise that several iterations of developer kits have hinted at: an actual ecosystem, at least one killer app of some kind, and seamlessly integrated hardware and software.
The company said the new version will “build on the presence, immersion, and comfort of the Crescent Bay prototype,” with an improved tracking system that supports seated and standing experiences.
