The Beginning of the Rift

I hope you’re ready for the future of video games, because the possibility to enter new “physical” worlds by yourself is right next door.

So it begins. We’ve been talking about it since 2012, imagining what it would be and what we would do with it. The Oculus Rift consumer versions will be delivered on March 28 for the first VR customers, pioneers of a new age.

Fortunately, they won’t be testing this new gadget with just demos or short experiences. A whole pack of video games for VR are available on the same day, 30 to be exact:
