[Updated] Oculus Rift is coming to Android first
Mobile to launch alongside PC headsets
[Updated: So some confusion but now it's been clarified that as planned, Oculus Rift is coming to Android first.]
During his keynote at Tuesday morning's GamesBeat 2013 conference, Oculus VR's CEO Brendan Iribe beamed that "We have some exciting plans on the mobile VR side as the PC VR side".
Extrapolating slightly, Iribe added "We're really looking at hitting the consumer market. We're very excited about what we're seeing.”
No word on whether the pun at the end of that sentence was intentional or not, but Iribe and Oculus VR are hoping that consumers will be excited about what they're seeing when the headset launches.
The final design of the mobile Rift headset has yet to be unveiled, but Iribe noted that it will be a lighter, consumer-friendly version, and will use the mobile device's processor.
