Posted at 8:50 AM, Feb 16, 2016

The virtual reality gaming product Oculus Rift is expected to be available to consumers at the end of March.

Oculus, owned by Facebook, said the headset will have a starting price tag of $599. The technology surrounds the eyes, like goggles, and creates a 360-degree view of the virtual world.

A high-powered PC is required to use it, and bundles of the Rift and a PC will start at $1,499, according to a report by the Associated Press.

The current release date is March 28.

At a recent summit, leaders projected VR would not take off in its first year, but in the next decade 1 billion consumers will have it.
