Oculus Rift Pre-Orders to Start January 6

Facebook-owned Oculus is getting ready to peddle its Rift VR headset to consumers: Pre-orders for the Oculus Rift will begin on January 6, the company announced Monday. Consumers will be able to file orders for the Rift at 8 p.m. PT on the Oculus website.

Oculus still hasn’t said how much the Rift is going to cost, but we should expect a final word on pricing by Wednesday. Every Rift will ship with free copies of the games “Lucky’s Tale” and “EVE: Valkyrie”, the company said Monday.

Oculus plans to ship the Rift in the first quarter, but the company recently delayed the shipping date of its Oculus Touch controller. The Touch is now expected to be available in the second half of 2016. “On the path to perfecting Touch, we’ve decided that we need more time before release,” the company stated on its blog last week.

Oculus will directly compete with VR headsets from HTC and Sony. Both companies haven’t announced release dates and pricing for their devices either, but are also expected to do so at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
