Oculus Rift Pre-Orders Start January 6th

The Oculus Rift dev kits have been running around in the wild for quite some time now, but according to an announcement on the official Oculus Rift blog today, the consumer version will be available for pre-order starting January 6th:

“Today, we’re excited to announce that pre-orders for Rift will open on Oculus.com at 8am Pacific Time on January 6! We’ll be sharing everything you need to know to order your Rift on Wednesday when pre-orders go live.”

Reports last week indicated that the motion controls for the Rift will be delayed in 2016, but two pre-order bonuses include copies of Lucky’s Tale (actually not a pre-order bonus, it will come bundled with Oculus Rift) and CCP’s dogfighting EVE spin-off, EVE:Valkyrie.
