Oculus Rift S Specs, Price, and Release Window Announced at GDC

United Kingdom pricing for the Rift S hasn't yet been confirmed, but Oculus VR has set a U.S. price of $399 (around £304 excluding taxes) ahead of an unspecified Spring 2019 release date. Even though PC specification requirements are largely the same as with the original Rift, you might need a faster CPU. From the description in the review it seems they have done so very successfully, with location tracking improving as opposed to degrading due to that change. You can sign up to receive the latest updates at Oculus' website.

The redesigned Oculus Rift S won't require external sensors to work, features a higher resolution display, improved optics, and the ability to quickly see the real world around a user through the headset's built-in cameras.

All Oculus Quest games can be played on the Oculus Rift S too, should casual gamers want to upgrade to a more advanced bit of hardware in the future. There's been a small bump in resolution to 1280×1440 pixels per eye, though the frame rate of the displays is dropping from 90hz to 80hz. Are any of you thinking about picking up a VR headset this year? A stylized action-adventure with role-playing game elements, Journey of the Gods pits players against enemies big and small, from attacking waves of Moonbeasts to the giant Kraken boss with its deadly tentacles, they'll have to utilise all manner of weapons to the fullest to survive. The viewing angle is a little wider, but the Rift S switches to LCD instead of OLED, which should reduce the screen door effect (the Oculus Rift used a PenTile OLED, while the LCDs are RGB). However, a 3.5mm audio jack still allows you to use your own headphones.
