Since 2009, the Oculus Rift has been an idea, but over the past year the future of Oculus Rift has gained significant momentum, and production has been put into fast forward. This is thanks to one of their major investors, the venture capital firm of Andreessen Horowitz. As firm believers in the product, they were able to provide the additional funding that was needed for Oculus VR to reach its goals to be able to put the Oculus Rift out into the hands of consumers faster than ever. They understand the vision behind this product, and they know that the Oculus team is made up of people that can make the dream a reality.

What is the Gamer’s Ultimate Dream?

If you are into gaming, then you will probably have your ultimate dream as a gamer. Most gamers will agree that one of their biggest dreams is to be able to play ‘inside’ of a video game, and with the newer advancements that are being made with technology- this is all too possible! With the Oculus Rift, you will see a dramatic difference in how the game is played. It is a much more immersive experience for gamers, and it is sure to be something that makes a huge impact on the future of games as well.

The PC Advantage

If you are excited about the release of the Oculus Rift, you should be aware of the fact that people that use the game on their PC will be at an advantage. This is what it was initially designed to be used for, although you can still use it with various mobile games. Some ask if it will work with the new Xbox One or the Playstation 4, and that is a no-go according to the developers. According to the founder, Palmer Luckey, these consoles are far too limited to be able to support the evolution of the Rift, which is expected to go pretty quickly.

What About Other Virtual Reality Options?

So, now you have to take a closer look at some of the other virtual reality options out there. Sure, the Oculus Rift is not the only option that you have to consider, but it is undoubtedly the one that has had the most attention, the most funding, and the most potential. That doesn’t mean that many of the other developers won’t be right behind Oculus trying to design the next big thing in virtual reality gaming. The VR gaming industry and the future of Oculus Rift are about to go full steam ahead.
