    After years of dev kits and prototypes and behind-closed-door demos, the Oculus Rift is finally ready for consumers. Welcome to VR.

    Pros

    • Better (sturdier) design than predecessors
    • Meets all of Oculus's initial goals for seated VR
    • Oculus brings plenty of software to launch, with more on the way

    Cons

    • Clearly not designed with room-scale VR in mind
    • Oculus Store needs work
    • Xbox controller is a stopgap solution at best
