ZeniMax’s lawsuit against Oculus VR took a turn for the nastier last week. An updated filing by ZeniMax claims that the development of the Oculus Rift VR headset is a result of former id Software employee and current Oculus CTO John Carmack stealing thousands of documents and using them in developing the Rift. Their suit also now alleges that Oculus founder Palmer Luckey isn’t capable of developing VR technology himself.
Virtual Reality is the next thing in gaming (again) but if you want to be an early adopter, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny. At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show, Oculus VR announced that the retail version of their Rift virtual reality headset will be shipping starting at the end of March. It will only cost you $599 USD before taxes and shipping to be one of the first to get your hands on one.
