The wait for an Oculus Rift VR headset is almost over. Almost.
In a post published on the Oculus Blog, the team behind the Oculus Rift announced its first consumer virtual-reality headset will ship to consumers in the first quarter of 2016.
Pre-orders for the VR headset will start later this year, and a few dark and mysterious photos of the headset were posted along with the announcement.
