The Oculus Rift DK2 is now shipping to those who pre-ordered

Good things come to those who wait, and patience is definitely a virtue if you have been waiting for what seems to be the longest time for the Oculus Rift DK2. Actually, it has just been four months as well as a self-imposed delay, but the first wave of Oculus Rift DK2 pre-order owners will be pleased as punch to hear that they have started to receive emails from Oculus that cite shipping is imminent.

We were expecting to see the new iteration of the Oculus Rift arrive on developer’s doorsteps earlier this month, but unfortunately it hit a couple of delays. Road to VR points out a Reddit thread where pre-orderers confirmed their credit cards have been charged ahead of shipping. Community manager cyberreality confirmed in the thread that it’s happening, and the “DK2” hardware we (and Mark Zuckerberg) were so impressed by is ready to roll. The initial production run is only supposed to cover some 10,000 of the 45,000 units ordered, so for some your wait is just beginning (until next month). In the meantime, you can check out our hands-on video of the latest and greatest in virtual reality after the break (or the new X-Men related Comic-Con demo) — hopefully Sony’s Project Morpheus team responds to this as quickly as they did on Blu-ray 3D.
