Catch Oculus Rift Sales At Best Buy This Weekend
As Oculus Rift release date was getting near, the virtual reality craze was getting higher and the fan base of the industry was getting more and more excited. Now, according to the latest reports, the company decided to offer the upcoming virtual reality gadget on sales at Best Buy during this weekend.
The launching of the Oculus Rift VR headset was rougher than expected, according to The BitBag. Experiencing delays in fulfilling the preorders, Oculus decided to offer free shipping to its early customers.
Venture Beat reports that before fulfilling all of its preorders, Oculus decided to launch its retail plans for Rift before fulfilling all of its preorders. This leaves customers who preordered the $599.99 Rift unhappy. After all, the whole point of preordering some product is getting it before everybody else can.
Now Oculus tries to appease these unhappy customers by offering them the possibility to get their Rifts on May 7, through retail at select Best Buy stores. Those customers who preordered the Rift would need to inform the company through this link that they have purchased their units from retail.
Customers will still retain some preorder benefits like "EVE: Valkyrie Founder's Pack," but not all are happy with this measure. According to comments in the Oculus blog, many do find this quite a hassle.
According to Yahoo!, those who have not preordered but still want to get their Rift can just walk into 48 Best Buy stores on May 7. It might be possible that some of those who did not preordered can even get their unit earlier than those who have preordered.
The company announced that there will be just an "extremely limited supply" of the Oculus Rift VR headsets for purchase. In case that some of the customers who preordered cannot make it to Best Buy in time to get their units, this could certainly add to their frustration. But at least there is at least a little hope of getting a VR unit for the large number of people who are still waiting on their Rift preorders.
The Verge reported that a few dozen games are already available for the Rift. For instance, hacking puzzler "Darknet" is priced at $9.99, while "Elite Dangerous: Deluxe Edition" has a price tag of $59.99.
