source wrote:June 11 – Special Event and Livestream

On June 11, we’re holding a special press event in San Francisco. We’ll be talking about the future of virtual reality, gaming, the Rift, and more.

We invite you to join the livestream starting 10am PT Thursday morning on Oculus.com and Twitch.tv.

You can visit oculus.com and click the ‘Add to My Calendar’ button to quickly add the livestream details to your calendar for a reminder to tune in when the event begins.

New Oculus Logo

Virtual reality has come a long way since Oculus started in 2012. That progress is a direct result of you – the community of developers, creators, and believers who have been on this journey with us since the start.

As we take another step toward true consumer virtual reality and next-generation VR gaming, we’re excited to share an evolution of the Oculus logo with you today:

Image

We’ve just updated Oculus.com with this new logo, and you’ll see it begin to flow across the rest of Oculus in the next few weeks. We hope you like the design as much as we do.

We’ll see you Thursday!

– The Oculus team

I assume I'm the only one here who cares, but holy cow it looks incredible. Consumer Device in Q1 2016.

Its certainly interesting technology, but it would have to be an exceptionally cheap price for me to consider buying one.

Just ended, looks super cool and impressive tech. I definitely want VR of some kind, the only question will be which. The half moon controllers look like a great solution to hand movements at least.

Bundled with a controller that's only compatible with Windows 10 at the consumers cost, a very bad sign for the open VR device they've preached about for years.

I had a DK1 and enjoyed playing around with it, but this new Rift is more a platform than a peripheral, it's fragmenting a market that doesn't even exist yet. Look forward to this thing only supporting games bought through their store.

Facebook and MS can blow it out their ass

I just can't look past it as anything other than a gimmick.

The Wii Remote was a very commercially successful gimmick but I think it's a whole different ball game to VR, due to the accessibility. Who can be arsed putting that on?

It's a more niche audience than Nintendo's general target audience but there's still a massive market for VR tech and those interested in it, as already demonstrated by the popularity of some of the already existing products in Japan. As it is not many will likely jump on the first iteration of it all and only if it's affordable but to think that there's not a market for this is just plain stupid.

I personally can't wait for VR. This is all I've ever wanted ever after seeing my first episode of Knightmare.

I will gladly shell out for that experience

I tried one at Play Blackpool, and I'm not sure if it was because it's still in development, or because it was running a super eton mess generic space FPS, but I wasn't really impressed.

Their Gear VR device is locked to the Oculus store, games from other sources are blocked, don't expect that to change with the Rift. Controlling the VR software market is why Facebook them.
