Oculus pre-order begins at Dh2,201


Following yesterday’s news, the Oculus Rift is now on pre-order at $599 (Dh2,201). It starts shipping to 20 countries on March 28.


In the box, you will receive the headset with its built-in headphones and microphone, the sensor, an Xbox One controller and the newly released Oculus Remote. Oculus says the remote is “the easiest way to introduce non-games to VR”. The remote will help you browse through the Oculus store, explore 360 content and even experience VR entertainment. With the VR headset you get Lucky’s Tale by Playful and access to EVE: Valkyrie through the Founder’s Pack, which will include exclusive in-game content, and founder status in Valkyrie, among other things.


Pre-ordering the Rift also secures the customer a place in line for pre-ordering the Touch controller, which has been delayed until the second half of the year.

February onwards, the pre-order bundles will come with the Rift as well as Oculus-ready PCs, starting at $1,499 (Dh5,508). The computers will be tested by Oculus to guarantee they deliver great Rift experiences.
