Developers of the Virtual Reality product are keeping very quiet about details
Quite possibly the next step in home entertainment, the Oculus Rift will be available to buy from this Wednesday, January 6th.
However, the developers behind the device are remaining bizarrely tight-lipped about any specific details.
While the pre-orders can be made from 8am PT, there was no information released regarding pricing or shipping dates for the device.
Those who do pre-order the consumer version of the Rift will receive the launch game Lucky's Tale (trailer below) which is not dissimilar to Super Mario Bros., as well as a copy of EVE: Valkyrie, a space-based dogfight shoot'em-up.
Oculus founder Palmer Luckey tweeted on the subject just before Christmas: “VR will become something everyone wants before it becomes something everyone can afford. ... Future advancements and high volume will make VR available to everyone eventually, but 1st gen will be mostly early adopters. … There are a lot of people who expect to spend a couple hundred bucks and use their existing low-end laptops.”
That would indicate that the pre-orders will not come cheap, but all details should be revealed on Wednesday when the product finally goes on sale to the public, while rumours circulate that Luckey will take to Reddit later in the day to perform an AMA session.
