Oculus VR, maker of the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset, has revealed that it has sold around 25,000 units of its second developer kit (DK2) since it was revealed last month. That kit is currently available for pre-order, with the company hoping to ship the updated device in July 2014.
The number was revealed to TechCrunch, and pits the DK2 at a little under half of the 60,000 units that the original DK1 managed to ship since its release over a year ago. The DK2 set improves on DK1 with a 1080p, low latency, low persistence OLED display as well as the inclusion of positional tracking. It was announced at the Game Developers Conference on 19th March, with pre-orders starting immeadiately.
For context, Oculus VR confirmed to VRFocus that it had sold 12,500 DK2 units in just 2 days. While the sales have obviously slowed down, managing to approach the halfway line of its predecessor’s sales in this amount of time is undoubtedly impressive. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all news surrounding the Oculus Rift and bring it to you.
