The much awaited Oculus Rift is now available to pre-order – for a large price
You can pre-order the Oculus Rift for $599 and expect to get it after the 28th of March. The Rift will be shipped to “20 countries“. Plus it will also be available a certain retailer in April.
When you get your Oculus, you actually get a fair amount in the box. The Oculus has built in headphones but you also get a microphone, sensor and an Xbox One controller.
Sadly it appears that you will need a fairly hefty PC to run it. I am not a tech person but from the specifications that Oculus recommends you have, it is seems like it could cost you a bit of money.
