With the release of the Oculus Rift, Virtual Reality has taken off again. As Oculus VR CEO Palmer Luckey puts it “The games industry is at the end of a very long console cycle, one that is definitely showing its age. People want a truly next-generation gaming experience, but next-generation consoles are looking to be more of the same. The Rift, on the other hand, is something that clearly brings new things to the table.” DFW Virtual Reality is a group of local VR enthusiasts working towards the old promise of a next-gen gaming experience. Come join us learn, explore and make it happen.
