Oculus Rift Review: This Shit Is Legit

 

Virtual reality has never really convinced me it's worth the hassle. The roughly developed attempts so far never seem to justify the awkward hardware or the stomach queasiness. Even after strapping on one of Oculus' early development headsets and...

Oculus Rift Preview: Bringing Reality to the Virtual World

 

The Oculus Rift DK 2 is an amazing piece of hardware, and while it's far from ready for consumer use, it delivers a highly compelling experience that shows exactly how easy it is to get lost in VR. From a gaming perspective, there's no doubt that this...

Oculus Rift: The consumer Oculus Rift headset seriously impresses, even though it isn't perfect

Incredible, new experience ; Light and robust ; Simple setup ; Strong launch lineup

Images could be sharper ; VR sickness an issue with some games ; No motion controls

VR is still a very young platform, and no headset has managed to so far get it 100% right. The lack of interesting games, despite an impressive increase in numbers, makes the platform feel underdeveloped as a whole.

Oculus Rift review: High-end VR is here -- if you can pay

 

As a first-generation VR product, the Oculus Rift delivers an impressive amount of immersion. The big downside is its price, as well as the fact that it requires a PC gaming rig. For most people, it might be wiser to wait until the price drops for...

It's capable of fully immersing you in virtual worlds ; The headset is light and comfortable ; Offers a solid ecosystem of VR apps and games

It's too expensive for most, and requires a powerful gaming PC ; Glasses wearers will have to deal with some slight discomfort ; Motion controller not available at launch ; Might lead to motion sickness

Even after spending the better part of a week with the Oculus Rift, it's still hard to fathom that virtual reality is something I can just jump into at home. It's almost as easy as flipping on a game console or turning on the radio. It's even harder to...

Oculus Rift

 

The Oculus Rift is a powerful, PC-tethered VR headset that's even more appealing now thanks a lower price and the inclusion of Oculus Touch motion controllers.

Immersive VR experience. Works with Oculus and SteamVR platforms. Now includes both conventional gamepad and Oculus Touch controllers.

Requires four USB ports (three 3.0, one 2.0) to fully function.

The Oculus Rift comfortably produces an immersive, crisp virtual reality experience that will continue to improve with the development of new software, which has been steadily coming out on both the Oculus store and SteamVR. Now that the Rift costs...

Oculus Touch: The best VR controllers ever

 

The Touch controllers rule -- but that doesn't necessarily make the Oculus Rift the best VR system you can buy.

The Oculus Touch controllers add impressive finger and hand movement, plus physical buttons for traditional games. The Rift headset is well-designed and compact. A strong collection of software offers many apps to explore.

The motion tracking lacks the HTC Vive's full-room scale. It takes a while to adjust to the controls. Total cost of headset plus controllers is expensive -- and that doesn't include the pricey gaming PC you need, too.

The Oculus Rift now offers a great combination of controls and apps for next-level VR and some room tracking, but it offers a less expansive experience than the Vive.

Oculus Rift VR headset review: The magical, yet unfinished birth of virtual reality

 

This isn't a normal review. How could it be? Today marks the cusp of not just an entirely new technology, but also the culmination of three years reporting on virtual reality. E3 2013, Indiecade, GDC, E3 again (and again), two Oculus Connect...

Better (sturdier) design than predecessors ; Meets all of Oculus's initial goals for seated VR ; Oculus brings plenty of software to launch, with more on the way

Clearly not designed with room-scale VR in mind ; Oculus Store needs work ; Xbox controller is a stopgap solution at best

After years of dev kits and prototypes and behind-closed-door demos, the Oculus Rift is finally ready for consumers. Welcome to VR.

Oculus Rift Development Kit (DK2)

 

The Oculus Rift DK2 delivers believable virtual reality, and is an across-the-board upgrade from the original Rift, but it's still not ready for consumers (and doesn't claim to be).

Higher-resolution, lower-latency display. Optical head tracking improves accuracy. Sleeker design. Easier to connect to PCs.

Relies on developer community to make content. Demos that work on the first Oculus Rift need to be recompiled.

Because the cable runs over the back of the head, it can drop down over the neck or shoulders and feel slightly awkward. This was particularly notable when sitting in a high-backed chair that pushed the cable against me if I didn't loop it over my...
