Oculus Rift review: simple to set up, very intuitive - but it needs motion controllers


Oculus should have been the hoover of VR - work with me on this - the kickstarter original that created the virtual reality market we now have could have been the name synonymous with the very tech it created.

30 launch games ; Cheapest PC option right now ; Effortless to set up

Lack of motion controllers ; You’ll need a good PC ; Not good with spectacles

Oculus is a solid and basic way to access a full VR experience if the price and PC specs are within your reach. The experience is a literal eye opener too, from games to 360 movies. The software is friendly to use and the initial range is promising....

Oculus Rift review


Update, March 1, 3:41 p.m. ET: Oculus just announced a price drop for both the headset and Touch controllers, down $100 each. We'll update this review with a re-evaluation of the value proposition between this and Vive.

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 review


Virtual reality has arrived, courtesy of Oculus - you're really going to want a Rift

Excellent head tracking ; Plenty of content through Oculus store ; Don’t need lots of space to play

Motion controllers aren't arriving until later this year ; No focus on room-scale VR ; Pricey if you don't already own a £1000 PC

The first virtual reality headset is seriously impressive. Even without motion controllers, it’s like strapping the future to your face

Oculus Rift hands-on demo with Deep Sea Dive


We give the virtual reality headset a go

Once the headset was in place, we opened our eyes to a world under the sea, but were disappointed to find that the screen was not nearly as sharp as we expected. Images are rather blurry, and it takes your eyes a few seconds to focus on an object, in...

Oculus Rift Development Kit


Whole it's far from a consumer product, the Oculus VR Oculus Rift is a surprisingly simple to use virtual reality headset that only lacks software support.

Oculus VR's Oculus Rift could be the device virtual reality needs to finally become adopted by the public and not just tech-frenzied neophiles (and mid-90s Hollywood, whose grasp on VR was breathtakingly stupid at best). It's a $300 virtual reality...
