  • Facebooks’ Oculus announced that pre-order day for the Oculus Rift virtual reality device is here. You can now pre-order one for $599 on Oculus.com.

    This includes the headset with built-in headphones and mic, sensor, and an Xbox One controller and Oculus Remote.

    A spokesperson for the company says, “Lucky‚Äôs Tale and EVE: Valkyrie are just two of the titles users will be able to play when Rift launches — dozens of full-length, AAA games designed for VR are coming to Rift, with more than 100 titles available by the end of 2016. Oculus Studios will introduce more than 20 games that are coming exclusively to Oculus this year, including: Rock Band VR by Harmonix, Edge of Nowhere by Insomniac, [and] The Climb by Crytek.”

    “Oculus Ready PCs are certified to meet recommended system specification and have been tested by Oculus,” they say. “Bundles that include an Oculus Ready PC and a Rift will be available for pre-order in February starting at $1499. Users can also check whether their current PC meets specs right now with the new Oculus compatibility tool.”

    The Oculus Rift will initially ship to 20 countries: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and United States.
