It seems that the guys at Oculus are already working hard on the consumer version of the Rift that will probably feature a Full HD display and the good news is that the first HD prototypes of the HMD device are being demonstrated at the E3 expo, so if you are visiting you might ant to check them out. Have in mind that this is just a prototype with a better resolution display and not a what the consumer version of the device might be like, but apparently the upgrade of the screen from 1280×800 to 1920×1080 (split in two for each eye) does make a difference.

Above you can see a screenshot of Epic Citadel (Unreal Engine 3) in the 720p development kit (left) and in the 1080p prototype (right) as a reference released by Oculus, even though the image is low res you should be able to see that the higher resolution HD prototype provides more detail and sharper image. The lower resolution of the Development kit of the Rift is one of the most noted disadvantages by people that have tried the device, so going for the higher resolution 1080p display should really make a lot of difference even though that each eye will get 960×1080 resolution.
