The third annual Oculus developers conference is taking place this week. The company will be making its keynote presentation today where we will hear about the future of Oculus VR from the company’s leaders. It’s expected to show off some new products, confirm pricing for the much-awaited controllers and introduce some new VR experiences for its headset.
The Oculus Rift headset was released just this year, the Facebook-owned company confirmed its $599 price back in January. Even though the headset has been out for a few months now we are still waiting to find out how much the company’s Touch controllers for the Rift will cost.
It’s quite possible that Oculus will finally announce today how much the Rift’s Touch controllers will be and when it’s going to release them. Those who already own the headset will be particularly interested in this information.
Oculus said earlier this year that 30 new made-for-VR games will be launched with Oculus Touch this year, these include 20 brand-new titles that have been designed around the sense of hand presence that the company promises users will only get with the Touch controllers.
Perhaps the company might also talk about its decision to support exclusive VR titles even though some have spoken out against them and believe that exclusives are actually going to hurt the nascent VR industry.
Oculus did budge its stance on the matter a little when it stopped blocking HTC Vive VR headset users from porting and playing games released exclusively for the Oculus Rift.
