“2016 is the year of virtual reality.”

That statement Alienware and XPS General Manager Frank Azor makes in the video below might sound like hyperbole, but after CES 2016 and all the products and experiences there related to virtual reality (VR), even this somewhat-jaded virtual world evangelist can believe it.

And it was exciting to be there when Azor was joined by Palmer Luckey, founder of Oculus and inventor of the Oculus Rift, to reveal during an exclusive dinner that we have partnered with them to create “Oculus Ready” systems that will make it that much more accessible for not only gamers, but anyone ready for a personal VR experience – something that moved one writer for TIME to be moved to tears!
