The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset will go on sale to consumers for the first time next year.

After starting life as a project looking for crowd-funding on website Kickstarter, Oculus has since been bought out by Facebook for two billion US dollars (£1.3 billion), and has been working on various prototype versions of the headset for the past two years.

Now Oculus has confirmed the finished version of the Rift headset will begin shipping in the first quarter of next year. In a blog post on the Oculus site, the firm said it was “incredibly excited to announce that the Oculus Rift will be shipping to consumers in Q1 2016”.
