Having issues ordering Oculus Rift? You're not alone: Facebook's Oculus VR experienced a deluge of online traffic Wednesday morning as users poured in to pre-order its new product.
"We've had an incredible amount of traffic hit our site," Brendan Iribe, co-founder and CEO, told CNBC's "Fast Money: Halftime Report." "This is the most traffic we've ever had. A lot of people want to order the Rift ... We're still getting pre-orders as we speak, and so we're getting through those issues, it's because of a lot of traffic. We should be fine over the next few hours."
Virtual reality enthusiasts took to social media with complaints when they couldn't place orders for the newly available VR headset, Oculus Rift, that opened for pre-order on Wednesday morning at $599.
