Virtual reality is poised to really emerge in 2016 and one of the key players behind the movement is the Oculus Rift. Starting this Wednesday, it will now be available for pre-order.
No release date or price has been set yet, but Oculus.com does promise to share everything you need to order when pre-orders start 8am Pacific Time January 6th, 2016. Every Oculus Rift comes bundled with the colorful platformer Lucky’s Tale, and everyone who pre-orders receives EVE: Valkyrie as well.
VR is really intriguing to me even without experiencing it firsthand, but no way I would pre-order hardware without knowing a price or exact release date. I hope those two pieces of info accompany the beginning of pre-orders on Wednesday. Everything said so far concerning the price points to it being expensive, so it doesn’t shock me EVE: Valkyrie is being thrown in alongside Lucky’s Tale to entice gamers to pre-order.
