Oculus DK2 Sold Out – Long Wait Starts For CV1

The Oculus development kit 2 (DK2) has officially ‘sold out’ today, with the Oculus website no longer offering any for sale.

The DK2 was first released in the middle of 2014, and was a huge improvement over the first version of the Rift, the DK1 (development kit 1), with an increase in resolution from 1,280 x 800 to full 1080p, an OLED display with lower persistence and faster refresh rate, and positional tracking.

Over 180,000 of the DK2 have been sold since release, making it the most used HMD for developing virtual reality experiences.

The DK2 is expected to rise in value on the second-hand market as consumers wait for the the CV1 (consumer version 1), which is due for release sometime in March 2016.
