Frankly, I never thought this day would come.

The Oculus Rift is like Day Z in that I always kind of figured it'd be in open beta forever, and the final version would never be released, at least, not properly. I mean, the Rift was revealed three years ago, and since then it's always sort of been there, with games being developed for it, but always out of the hands of the common man like myself. All the talk of these special games being made for it, and the new software it would have, and designing games to be Rift-Compatible kind of like a trade show, in that it looks cool but it doesnt affect me at all.

Well, no more. The ever-in-development Oculus Rift has finally got itself a proper release date. Or, at least, an estimated one, according to the latest blog post on the official Oculus Rift website.

We can expect to buy the first brave step into the world of VR technology in early 2016.

The Rift delivers on the dream of consumer VR with compelling content, a full ecosystem, and a fully-integrated hardware/software tech stack designed specifically for virtual reality. Its a system designed by a team of extremely passionate gamers, developers, and engineers to reimagine what gaming can be.


Not a specific date, which is disappointing, so its always possible it can change, but it is what it is. In addition to not knowing when it will be released, we're also unsure how much it will cost, what OS it is compatible with, and if it will come installed with all that porn software or if I have to get that myself at a later date.

We do, however, know that pre-orders will be available soon, in case you have disproportionate trust in new technology. Then again, they had what, four years to test this thing out, hopefully they used that time to actually work the kinks out.

I guess well find out first quarter of 2016.
