In about 48 hours, we’ll know the price of the Oculus Rift.


Oculus has announced that on Wednesday, January 6, pre-orders will become available for the Rift VR headset. Anyone interested will be able to pre-purchase it starting 8am PT through the official website.

There’s even a countdown on the front page now, to make sure you don’t miss it.

January 6 is also when we’re presumably going to learn the Rift’s final retail price, which founder Palmer Luckey hinted before could be over $350.

The headset comes bundled with a copy of Lucky’s Tale, and all pre-orders include a copy of EVE: Valkyrie.

More details will be revealed when Luckey hosts a Reddit AMA on the same day.
