HD oculus out with developers?

Post by Falan »

Hi there I have been following the Oculus Rift support in the upcoming Star Citizen space game and my wife noticed one of the developers using a HD rift in the office.

Its at 15:54, I appreciate theres a few HD version been seen at gaming conventions but are they being leaked out to select game developers before an official release of an improved dev kit 2 version?

i think Palmer Luckey said that already in an interview, that they handed out Oculus HDs to some cooperating game developer companies.....
Cool to see...... :D

Nice I hope he gave one out to Elite Dangerous too as I think that's another one Palmer backed for 10k or something! Hes backed a few things though hasn't he, I think he even backed CastAR which is interesting given they might be competition down the road, shows how committed he is to making VR a reality today :)

elite dangerous added some very nice music to the capital ship video.....
my guess about possible handouts to developers is the following: :lol:

Valve (obvious...since the latest accomplishements derived from them)
ID software
well Star Citizen
Epic Games
Lukewarm Media (official Oculus partner, website)
and i hope Crytek too since Palmer Luckey told about official Cryengine support one month ago.
it would be badass to smash slimy aliens in the nanosuit. 8-)

Telltale Games says they have received HD devkits on the rift tracker.

Yes, and this is not a "leak", and it is just a prototype not a devkitv2. Reason being that it does not have updated lenses.

I don´t think the reason for less people here is the not yet released dev kit 2.
I think the reason is because most of them switched over to the official Oculus Rift forum.
