When the battle is over you take off the Oculus Rift headset and give yourself a few seconds to get reacquainted with reality. It almost feels strange to look around and see the familiar confines of your living room instead of the tight, futuristic structure of the fighter’s cockpit. Playing the virtual reality space combat game felt so real you almost forgot you were sitting in a chair at home. In fact, it felt so immersive you can’t wait to jump back in. With a grin you slip the Rift headset on and leap back into the heat of battle. Why you need this: PC required: The Oculus Rift requires a PC with certain minimum specs. Please see the “Required hardware” section below.
Display: 2160 x 1200 resolution (1080 x 1200 per eye), a 110-degree field of view, and 90Hz refresh rate combine to create an immersive visual experience you need to see to believe.
Integrated VR audio: The Rift’s audio system places sounds in three-dimensional space, so it actually feels like sounds are coming from the side or above you.
Removable audio arms: Enjoy the freedom to use your own headsets, if you prefer.
Oculus Home: Explore a wide (and ever-growing) selection of games, movies, and experiences. Endless worlds await.
Controllers: The Rift includes a pair of Oculus Sensor X2 Touch Controllers, which bring your hands into the virtual environment for a more tactile, realistic VR experience.
