Our Take
The Oculus Rift was essentially the mostsome of the most exciting things I saw at E3 2013, and i’m very desperate to test it out again. The device has the prospective to drastically shift how we interact with the medium, and if Oculus VR is successful in driving the cost of the hardware down, it can be pervasive enough to seriously impact development.
