Earlier in the year Oculus VR announced the recommended PC specifications for hardware to run the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD). The reveal allowed those looking to buy the upcoming device to get some idea of what kind of pricing and hardware they would need to look at. However, Oculus VR will also be helping customers decide exactly why rigs to purchase with a brand new programme it’s announced today named the Oculus Ready PC Programme.
This new concept was announced by Oculus VR’s Nate Mitchell at the Oculus Connect 2 developer conference in Hollywood, California today. Earlier in the week Nvidia announced the Oculus VR-approved laptops and this theme continues here, as Mitchell revealed that ASUS, DELL and Alienware making Rift ready PCs for under $1000 USD. That should go a long way to helping some people consider their purchases for hardware for the Oculus Rift.
A price for the Oculus Rift itself has not yet been revealed.
VRFocus will continue to follow Oculus VR’s work, reporting back with the latest updates from the company.
