Oculus Rift virtual reality headset developer kits are finally shipping

25

It's been a long road for the Oculus Rift — the virtual reality headset's Kickstarter began back in August, and was supposed to ship by the end of the year. However, things were delayed till March of 2013, but the company just announced it has made it in under the gun: Oculus Rift developer kits started shipping out to buyers earlier this week. These shipments should cover those who backed the project on Kickstarter as well as those who have purchased the headset directly from the Oculus website. When we visited the Oculus headquarters a few weeks ago, we learned there were about 10,000 headsets ready to ship, but when we caught up with Oculus at the Game Developers Conference this week, we heard there were about 13,000 orders so far. You might have to wait a bit to get your headset if you've purchased, but rest assured — it should be on its way very soon.
