Oculus Rift pre-orders start TODAY

Man wearing an Oculus Rift virtually cheats on his wife with a man named Bruce
Here we see a man using the Oculus Rift for leisure while his wife is out of town on business. She does not know.

Oculus Rift is coming.

Today’s the day. It’s finally here. It’s coming. I’m coming. We are all coming.

After years of delays, pre-orders for the Oculus Rift are finally here. In just under 3 hours (at the time of writing… duh) we’ll know the spec, price and release date of the final consumer version of the Oculus Rift and, more importantly, you can pre-order it. As a reminder, every Rift purchase comes bundled with Playful’s Lucky’s Tale, the headset, and an Xbox One controller.

If you pre-order, Oculus are also throwing in CCP’s EVE: Valkyrie. We had a lot of fun playing EVE at EGX a few years ago. We were actually queueing to play Alien: Isolation but evidently we’re so babyfaced that the guy didn’t even bother asking our age and sat us down to play EVE Valkyrie instead. Ah well.

Nothing says SubliminalRealm like bad planning and short notice ideas. On that note, here’s a poll. Let’s see how close you are to the actual figure when it’s announced later today.

UPDATE: Wow, it costs hundreds.

This poll has been closed.

How much will the Oculus Rift cost?

Post updated 18:00 on January 6th to reflect what a tremendous fuck up this pricing is.
