Pre-orders have gone live !

he rift comes bundled with EVE: Valkyrie and Lucky's tale
and also comes with a Xbox one controller, small (removable) headset , A sensor for movement,Cables Oculus remote and the Oculus rift ofcourse ;)
Note: Oculus will release the Oculus touch controllers at a later date.
The Oculus rift has a 2160 X 1200 OLED screen with room for glasses in the headset.
The Oculus rift is expected to ship in March 2016
and the price is 600$ Dollars, 550 Euro's or 400 Pounds (quick calculation)
and not to mention that these prices are without tax and shipping.
Recommended Specifications:

Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
8GB of Ram
A HDMI 1.3 Video output

t was twice the price of the dev kit,Mark claims the price increasement was due to a controller and a polished finish and some minor changes!
