OCULUS RIFT PRE-ORDERS OPEN


The Oculus Rift has just (as of 11 AM EST 1/6/2016) started taking pre-orders.

It is possible that developers with a game or product for the Rift that will be ready when the Rift ships can get a device earlier.

The Rift will ship with some free games, a controller and a new remote.
