With the 2014 Game Developers Convention soon coming to a close, the New Oculus Rift is the talk of the internet for gamers. By going to the Oculus VR website, developers can purchase the Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 for $350 and will most likely be shipped in July 2014. The new features of the Oculus Rift are positional tracking, low persistence OLED display and a built-in latency tester. This is the list of what is included in the box: headset, 2 pairs of vision lenses, external camera meant for positional tracking, a camera usb cable, HDMI-DVI adapter and a sync cable.

The Oculus Rift Developers Kit is intended for developers only. According the the Oculus Rift FAQ page:
