It’s official, you can start your venture into consumer Oculus territory in the first quarter (Q1) of next year (2016).
No real details have been released, but expect a lot of information in the coming months about the specifics of the first official version of the headset. It of course will build off of the highly successful DK2 (Developer Kit) version and improve many of the issues that people still struggle with. That said, the DK2 is regarded as one of the best VR experiences to date, so this should be exceptional.
