The retail version of the Oculus Rift will be released in the first part of next year, Oculus VR revealed today.

According to official site, the retail version “builds on the presence, immersion, and comfort of the Crescent Bay prototype with an improved tracking system that supports both seated and standing experiences, as well as a highly refined industrial design, and updated ergonomics for a more natural fit.”

Oculus VR also released images of the retail headset, which you can see above and right below:


The final tech specs will be revealed next week, and pre-orders will kick off later this year.
