Facebook (FB) Oculus Headset Gets Generally High Marks

What’s clear from the swath of reviews of the Facebook (FB)-owned Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset is that the technology has certainly arrived, but the content still needs to follow—though new types of video games are right around the corner, Investor’s Business Daily reported.

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.
