While the Oculus Rift hardware coming closer to consumer reality, the company is now turning more of its attention to software. We saw new games from Gunfire Games (Chronos) and Insomniac (Edge of Tomorrow). We also know that High Voltage, Sanzaru, Coatsink, CCP, Playful, and Carbon Games are working on titles.

Oculus' Anna Sweet took the stage at the company's pre-E3 conference to announce a major innovation to spur VR development. The company is putting up $10 million to help independent developers realize their projects.

The Oculus Rift will be available for consumers in Q1 2016. No price has yet been announced.
