Unless it is known that the release of a VR gadget is planned for the first half of 2016. But we know now that the Oculus Touch controler will go on sale in the second quarter 2016. This information is quite official.
Among other things within Oculus Connect action and to the press quite curious videos were shown to the audience. For example, in this roller the founder of the company Palmer Lucky tells, how it was hard to develop the convenient and most exact controler for virtual reality which thus would not spoil impression of users big delays between their movements and their transfer in virtual space.

These games are simple in development, but will allow us to understand, how it is healthy to feel so high precision of management in virtual reality.
The Epic Games company presented an own demo for the Oculus Rift platform and Oculus Touch controlers.

In any case, 2016 should be very interesting to judges of video games and new feelings.
