Oculus Rift pre-orders open January 6

rift countdown

FINALLY!

That’s what I’m assuming what every person on the planet who’s been waiting for this all said when reading the announcement:

“Today, we’re excited to announce that pre-orders for Rift will open on Oculus.com at 8am Pacific Time on January 6! We’ll be sharing everything you need to know to order your Rift on Wednesday when pre-orders go live.”

Now when it comes to the actual pricing of the Rift, we only have a little bit of info to go by, according to a statement made by Oculus’ founder Palmer Luckey in an interview last October with Road to VR:

You know, I’m going to be perfectly honest with you. We’re roughly in that ballpark [$350]… but it’s going to cost more than that. And the reason for that is that we’ve added a lot of technology to this thing beyond what existed in the DK1 and DK2 days.”

So almost as if it’s a brand new console, we can expect the Rift to fall in between $350 – $500, which to some may be quite a huge dent in the wallet, but considering it comes with 2 free games bundled with it and a brand new experience of gaming, it’s an exciting time as the curtain rises on home VR Gaming.

Only one question remains here however: Will you pre-order a Rift?

What do you say to describe a guy who only sleeps 4 days out of the week? Probably a lot but if you ever see an obscure story about some kind of food product, indie game or something that doesn't quite fit on this site, you can (almost) guarantee this guy wrote it. Whether or not he was awake while it was written is anybody's guess.
