Oculus Rift Preorders Won't Sell Out, No Charge Until Release

With Oculus Rift preorders set to begin in less than two hours on the Oculus website, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey offers reassurances that there is no danger they will sell out, and that they are not charging anyone at this point (thanks VG247). This tweet covers their ability to deal with demand: "No chance of Rift preorders 'selling out', we will keep taking preorders for as long as people want EVE: Valkyrie!" And this one explains this is a preorder, not a prepurchase:
We won't lock people into preorders months before reviews come out using our awesome preorder bonuses. We have confidence in our product!

Oh my, I just saw the European price is 699€ + 50€ shipping. We got really screwed by exchange rates this time.

Really? Try Canada where this is $850 + $100. Hahaha! Yeah, looks like you're not going to see a lot of adoption in Canada anytime soon. And it's really cheap and uncomfortable looking to boot. Look at the headphones! Totes ghetto.

Yup UK price is £499 or $729 without shipping

I said months ago I didn't want to pay the extra for the xbone controller - this just reaffirms it.

They can ^&%& right off with that price.

Oh and my pc does pass minimum, I was beta for elite and use a hotas on it. I'm kinda target demograph!

Now I just need a game I want to actually play that supports it.

Wasn't their unofficial support for Alien Isolation. Pretty sure I saw someone running that. Hope it comes with a set of Depends.

WoW?

SW: TOR?

That's pretty much it. Oh well.

I have two Eve accounts for two-boxing. How fast can I switch the games inside the headset?


Just run one account per eye! Multitask win!

how many USB ports is the damn thing gonna take?

I ran the compat program on my PC and it just mentioned that I pass the USB part because my PC supports USB 3.0. Where did you find these specs?

Yep, that is in the wait and see price range.

Tried the compatibility program, and while my processor is a bit slow for what they want, I was reading the specs and... how many USB ports is the damn thing gonna take?

I'm actually shocked. I thought $500 was as high as they'd go. $600.00? I can wait.

I think the thing to do for the first generation of it is wait and get it used. Shouldn't take long for that market to blossom.

Vive or GTFO!

From what I've seen, the Vive offers nothing that the Oculus doesn't. Did something change? Since they don't take any money today, I'm preordering a Rift. Can always cancel if the Vive suddenly offers something worth switching/waiting for.

If you have to ask...


It's not really about the price as much as it's about that I can't even start the conversation with my wife about buying it without knowing how much it is. You know, "well, how much is it?"

And I'm all
