This year’s E3 from 16th – 18th June is going to be yet another big event for the videogame industry but, for virtual reality (VR) fans, all eyes are currently on the week before the show. Oculus VR has announced that it will be hosting a pre-E3 press conference on 11th June in which it will provide more details about the consumer version of the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD), which it has revealed will be shipping in Q1 2016. Now a few more details on that event have arrived, revealing timing for the show.
Doors for the Oculus VR Pre-E3 show, which takes place at Dogpatch Studios in San Francisco, Calirfornia, will open at 09:00 PT. The show itself will be kicking off at 10:00. It’s not clear how long the event will last, although it has been confirmed that the event will be livestreamed as expected. This effectively makes Oculus VR’s press conference the first of many shows to be held at E3, with Bethesda, Ubisoft, EA, Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE), Microsoft and Nintendo all holding events in the following week.
Earlier in the week VRFocus speculated on what Oculus VR could reveal at its show, given that the company will also be at E3. It seems to be confirmed that the VR specialist will detail its input solution that it has teased to be included with the upcoming device. Fans will no doubt hope to hear about what new videogames they’ll be playing with this solution as well. Details such as pricing are also a possibility though, with events such as Oculus Connect 2 on the way, don’t expect everything to be revealed just yet.
VRFocus will be at Oculus VR’s pre-E3 event and E3 itself to deliver all the latest updates on the Oculus Rift.
