This morning, Oculus Rift announced that they're going to start pre-orders Wed 06/01/2016 at 8am Pacific Time (or Thursday 3am 07/01/2016 AEDT). https://www.oculus.com/en-us/blog/oculus-rift-pre-orders-to-open-on-jan-6/ URL for the Oculus Shop (Obviously not working yet) https://shop.oculus.com/ That said, who's on the hype train. I've been loving my DK2 experience of late with the newish 0.8 drivers so I cannot wait for CV1 with the apparent removal of the screen door effect, 90hz refresh rate, inbuilt audio and 360 degree head tracking. Hopefully it's not going to be too expensive, but, if it's anything like the DK2, expect it to be anywhere from $500-$1000.. So far the package includes an Xbox One controller, EVE: Valkyrie and Lucky Tale. Word is that they have a heap of stock ready to go, with shipping from 2-4 weeks from pre-order date and anyone who misses out will still be able to get an OR, just with a later shipping date. Then again, how's waiting for Valve/HTC's Vive HMD? Edit: I'll also add some updates as they come to hand Example of DK1 case Edit 2: List of countries that are going to ship the kickstarter OR edition: https://support.oculus.com/hc/en-us/articles/216091397-Initial-Launch-Countries Edit 3: HTC/Valve's "big breakthrough" for Vive is a new version of Chaperone that shows you rough outlines of objects(or people) in the real-world. So in other words, Vive will have another camera so it can map where objects are in a room. Also, it's looking highly unlikely that Elite Dangerous will have any CV1 support when it gets launched. Frontier has stated that they won't be doing any more re-coding until they get SDK 1.0, which could be a little while away. That said, at the moment, ED works in Steam VR mode because Steam VR still supports 'extended mode' which could be ditched at any moment. I think there's some very underhanded tactics going on with Frontier but guess we'll see if they do actually come to the party.
