The Rift is a solid piece of technology that works reasonably well under most circumstances, and video game reviewers mostly agree.
Hardware-wise, the main gripe among the reviews was that the Rift didn’t ship with motion sensitive controllers that Oculus demonstrated this month at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The Rift shipped with a Microsoft (MSFT) Xbox One controller.
Such controllers would allow anyone donning the headset to make gestures and manipulate VR content in a more life-like fashion. Facebook says the motion-sensitive controllers are coming later this year.
