Don’t expect the Oculus Rift to have a huge impact on journalism just yet

The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset began shipping pre-ordered headsets yesterday, but Joseph Lichterman writes that we shouldn’t expect the Oculus Rift to have a big impact on journalism just yet. While the Oculus Rift is “a solid first step into mainstream VR,” the price point and computing power needed will limit its adoption: The headset sells for $599, and a special high-powered PC is needed to run the headset.
