Oculus has started shipping its final Rift headset to consumers, with Oculus boss Brendan Iribe confirming the first batch of Rift headsets will reach customers as early as March 28.




We don't know who will be getting their Rift headsets first, but I ordered within the first 5 minutes and haven't gotten shipping notification emails yet - but I did get an email minutes ago saying that my unit would be shipping in the next 1-3 weeks. I really thought I'd be in that first batch, so here's hoping to an email in the next day or so.


Let's hope that before consumers start getting their Rift headsets, that Oculus doesn't require everything to be installed onto their C: ... eh?
