We might not have to wait much longer for the first consumer release of Oculus's virtual-reality headset. As The Next Web reports, Oculus VR CEO Brendan Iribe said at a conference in Ireland today that the current developer model, code-named Crescent Bay, is "largely finalized for a consumer product." Iribe went on to add:
"We're all hungry for it to happen. We're getting very close. It's months, not years away, but many months."
Well, all right. Everyone seems to be getting hung up on the "months" part of Iribe's statement. I should point out that, technically, 23 months would qualify as "many months" but "not years." It's kinda hard to extract a definite time frame from Iribe's statement.
Still, some sort of light is clearly visible at the end of the tunnel. I think the next couple of years are going to be an exciting time for PC gaming.
