Oculus start shipping high-res development kits

OculusVR announced this week that the first batch of the new, higher-resolution development kits, known as DK2, have left their manufacturing facility and are on their way to customers.

“We expect to ship roughly 10,000 DK2s from the factory in July, with just over half of the units through distribution centers and on their way to doorsteps before the end of the month,” the company said. “The very first units are expected to reach developers the week of July 14th.”

The company also said that there were more than 45,000 pre-orders for the DK2, and that some customers might not get their kits until August.
