In the lab: Oculus' Rift VR headset

— 1:48 PM on April 11, 2016

After what seems like an eternity of hype, Oculus' Rift VR headset is a real, shipping product, and we got ours in the mail today. Here's a quick look at what comes in the handsome, monolithic black box:

For the uninitiated, each Rift comes with the headset itself, a head-tracking camera, the Oculus Remote, and an Xbox One controller. Since we were among the brave pre-order crowd, we also get a key for EVE: Valkyrie. All Rifts come with VR platformer Lucky's Tale, too. We'll be digging into the Rift in detail and updating our testing methods soon to tell you just how well various hardware performs with Oculus' baby. For now, though, leave your questions and comments in the comments section on this article. We'll be collecting reader feedback from that thread to shape our upcoming, in-depth coverage of the Rift and other VR headsets.
