The Oculus Rift is many gamers' ultimate dream. It enables higher emersion than a typical monitor would, since you will only see the game world. Two new exciting announcements have been made with the first being a new 1080p prototype, and the second being that Epic Games has been working along side the Oculus team on integrating Unreal Engine 4, and the Oculus Rift now supports Unreal Engine 4 out of the box.
Not many details have been revealed regarding the new 1080p prototype, but on top of the higher resolution, it will feature improved brightness, contrast, and color. Despite these improvements, the prototype is not necessarily representing what consumers will be able to buy, when the final product is released. But it allows developers to keep creating content, and the Oculus team says that the Oculus SDK will "automatically handle the resolution and distortion changes for the consumer version".
I am sure many games cannot wait to get their hands on the Oculus Rift, and try what has only been seen in science fiction movies; however, there is still some more development needed before the product wil reach consumers.
