Oculus Rift retail unit unveiled, ships with Xbox One joypads thanks to Microsoft partnership

Oculus Rift


Oculus have already announced that the retail unit will arrive in 2016, but they have now gone ahead and unveiled the unit itself. Above is the what Oculus will be shipped early next year. The announcement comes along side the partnership with Microsoft that will see Xbox One joypads included with every Oculus Rift sold.

Furthermore the partnership also brings support for playing Xbox One games on the headset through a virtual living room. This will involve streaming the game from the Xbox One console to your PC and then to the headset once connected. Support for this will require Windows 10 OS, which arrives this summer and is a free upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users.

Pricing for the Oculus Rift is the last detail that has yet to be shared. Since we’re a good few months away from launch, we doubt we’ll see that for sometime, then again Oculus make shock us and have a pre-order with the price available soon.
