Fallon is no stranger to games and technology. His show hosts an annual Video Game Week, which last year featured The Last of Us, Halo 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Wii U, and Madden NFL 13.

The Oculus Rift was originally targeted to ship during holiday 2012, but was delayed in November to a release by April 2013. The company said the delay was necessary due to extra time required to implement changes and modifications to the device necessary for mass-manufacturing.

The Razer Edge--formerly Project Fiona--was announced during the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show this month. A basic version starts at $1,000, with the Pro model shipping for $1,300. Both models will be available by April 2013.
