Oculus Rift Develop Kits Are Shipping In A Virtual Fashion

Oculus Rift

Oculus Rift development kits have started shipping to its earliest backers. Although the shipments started Wednesday, it will take longer than a New York minute to send out its over 10,000 kits.

It’s hard not to pull for Oculus Rift, especially when creator Palmer Luckey admitted that it’s not a great device to use when you’re drunk.

Rift owners won’t be left in the cold, as the Oculus Developer Center will help gamers and interested developers explore their virtual world. The chance to play Team Fortress 2 in VR mode as well as engage with world building in Unity and Unreal Engine are just a few of Oculus’ initial selling points.

Whether the Oculus Rift will win over gamers who don’t want anything over their eyes is another story. Will this seemingly immersive experience eventually fade to black or does it have staying power.

An in-depth discussion of the Oculus Rift was featured in the SXSW panel Virtual Reality: The Holy Grail of Gaming. If you’re looking for that requisite Matrix and Neo reference, former Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski obliges 26 minutes into the video.
