The preorder package doesn’t just include the headset though. There’s the necessary sensor and cables, bundled Oculus Remote, an Xbox One Controller for playing EVE: Valkyrie (video above) and Lucky’s Tale, both titles also bundled alongside the headset.
Even so, it’s clear that the Oculus Rift is only for the determined VR enthusiast with powerful hardware and a few disposable dollars hiding under the lounge seat cushion.
Pre-orders will begin shipping 28 March, but it’s unclear when the headset will be launched officially in South Africa.
