SAN FRANCISCO — Oculus VR today revealed the final look and specs for its long-awaited Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.

At a press conference this morning preceding the E3 Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, Oculus VR CEO Brendan Iribe announced that Oculus Rift will be boxed with a wireless Xbox One controller and adapter and run Xbox One games through the Windows 10 operating system — the next version of Microsoft's Windows software, which launches for free in July. 

The partnership between Microsoft, maker of Xbox One, and Oculus VR is representative of a larger initiative — Xbox One runs games that are streamed via WiFi to a computer running Windows 10, which are then able to be played using the Oculus Rift headset.

The Oculus Rift headset, expected to become available to the general public in the first quarter of 2016, will require that users have a computer with Windows 7 SP1 or newer with 8GB RAM or more, Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater, and either an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater.

Users also will need HDMI 1.3 video output to connect to the headset, and 2x USB 3.0 ports for peripherals.

The headset also will come with a table-top camera on a stand that keeps track of LED markers on the headset to track head movement.

Oculus VR recently launched a new website for the Oculus Rift headset. The site offers new details on the virtual reality equipment.
