Good news for Oculus Rift fans outside the States: the Rift headset is coming to stores September 20th.
Priced £549 or €699, the Oculus Rift will finally be available to buy in physical retail stores across Europe and Canada from next month, with online pre-orders going live today. Over in the UK, the Rift is coming to Amazon.co.uk, Game, Harrods, John Lewis and PC World. In France, you’ll be able to order the headset from Amazon.fr and FNAC. Our German friends can pick up the Rift from Amazon.de, MediaMarkt and Saturn, while those in Canada can get their Rift from Best Buy and the Microsoft Store.
For those who have never tried virtual reality, Oculus has said that a number of these stores will be offering demo booths. It’s great news for VR fans, but should also offer the chance for the general public to discover this new and exciting medium.
