The first consumer version of the Oculus Rift will start shipping early 2016!
Oculus, the virtual reality company owned by Facebook, launched the headgear Thursday and announced a partnership with Microsoft Xbox One gaming console.
A prototype of the Oculus Rift has been available to developers since 2013.
The consumer version will be available for pre-order later this year.
Oculus Chief Executive Brendan Iribe says the Rift will include a wireless Xbox controller and adapter.
Consumers will be able to stream Xbox One games into the Rift, such as the first-person shooter game Halo.
