Oculus VR still doesn't even have a launch date for the consumer version of the Oculus Rift HD virtual-reality gaming headset, but already, the company is looking to the future: upgrading the current display to 4K — up from 1080p to 4000p.

At the Gaming Insiders Summit in San Francisco, Iribe said that the company has plans to launch a 4K version of the headset at some point in the future. Currently, the Oculus Rift is only available to developers as a 720p development kit for US$300.

Meanwhile, the company has posted 46 job listings on its website, indicating that it is ramping up activities. We'd like to think that it is in preparation for the device's launch, but Iribe would only say that it is coming "soon".
