The Oculus Rift started to hype video game enthusiasts back in 2012 when Oculus VR dropped its Kickstarter campaign, racking in over USD $2.5 million to develop the revolutionary gaming tech. Gamespot has been covering the Game Developers Conference or GDC, where the virtual reality front runner announced the price of its games would range from USD $4.99 to $59.99. Oculus VR gave us this news with the headset’s release date just around the corner. Considering the Oculus Rift costs $600 and the detail VR requires, the games’ cost doesn’t seem too irrational. Fortunately, the Oculus Rift pre-orders will come with games EVE: Valkyrie and Lucky’s Tale.
Oculus VR also announced the three categories of VR games:
- “Comfortable” games – will have fixed camera angles
- “Moderate” games -consist mainly of third person perspective and will generally have a ‘slow-moving camera’
- “Intense”games – will have a ‘fast-moving’ camera’
These additional ratings are informative, especially for people who want the Oculus Rift but often suffer from motion sickness. The Oculus Rift may be pre-ordered right now on the Oculus VR website, and shipping begins 28 March. A new era quickly approaches in the gaming community, be sure to make the most of it.
