Facebook-owned Oculus will release its virtual reality (VR) Rift headset to consumers for pre-order on Wednesday but one big question remains: how much will it cost?
In a blog post on Monday, Oculus revealed very little except that pre-orders will open from 8am Pacific time. The company also said that each headset will come with two free games – "Lucky's Tale" and "CCP's EVE: Valkyrie".
Oculus executives last year hinted that the Rift headset and a computer needed to run it will cost no more than $1,500 altogether. But there was no sign as to when the device would be shipped to consumers.
To shed more light on the topic, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey will be holding a Reddit "ask me anything" event on Wednesday before the Rift goes on pre-order.
