Update: A Facebook spokesperson has clarified that statements made during the keynote at F8 were not intended to be an announcement of availability for the consumer version of Oculus Rift.
Virtual reality gaming is coming “this year,” Facebook’s chief technology officer Mike Schroepfer said on stage at day two of the social network’s F8 Developer Conference in San Francisco on Thursday. He also said people would be able to play games in VR on “something” shipped by Oculus.
Schroepfer showed a demo for EVE: Valkyrie, a game that puts users in the cockpit of a spaceship.
