Just a few days prior to their ‘Step into the Rift‘ press event in San Francisco, Oculus has accidentally leaked what they’ve called a “placeholder concept” image which shows some never before seen additions to the Rift VR headset.
Shortly after the image—apparently hidden in today’s Oculus website overhaul—was uncovered, founder Palmer Luckey took to the Oculus section of Reddit to verify its authenticity, but also to explain how old it is.
“This is an old placeholder concept image that we accidentally leaked. Everything in it is ancient, certainly nowhere close to final (as evidenced by the GPU specs and the game named “war”) Enjoy checking it out, at this point, but don’t expect everything to carry through to the stream on the 11th,” he said.
