Good news VR fans, if you were keen to get your hands on the consumer edition of the Oculus Rift then you’ll be able to pre-order the headset as soon as January 6 – yes, that’s tomorrow.
Oculus VR announced the news yesterday via a fairly brief blog post, yesterday:
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.
We’re assuming the “everything you need to know” part will include the price, which has yet to be revealed, though we have some idea that it’ll be around the $300 price point. We’re also yet to hear a solid release date for the headset.
Over the holidays it was revealed that the Oculus Touch controllers would be delayed until the later part of 2016, which may have disappointed a few VR fans, what’s more, NVIDIA has announced the specifications it believes are ideal for the best VR experience, and it’s not exactly low-end.
As for launch titles, the Oculus Rift is set to see a handful of games at launch including EVE: Valkyrie, Chronos, Edge of Nowhere, Damaged Core, and many more.
Stop by on Wednesday to hopefully see more Oculus VR news.
