Oculus Rift Hits Retail Again! Before Pre-Orders Reach Users

On May 6th a number of Oculus Rift Headsets will become available to buy at Best Buy, Amazon and Microsoft, once again bypassing the massive queue of those who have Pre-ordered or Kickstarted the device.



Read more on Oculus giving Retail stores Oculus Rift HMDs before they have fulfilled pre-orders.

Unhappy Oculus Rift-off

Sad for the users that this company thinks they don't have to honor their agreements. From a consumer point of view, I would NOT trust a company to provide software and firmware updates for a device when they won't honor their pre-order agreements. I would recommend that if you are an early adopter of VR, make it something other than Oculus!

Well if I go for it, it'll definitely be a Vive.

It wouldn't be bad if you could pre order it at retail chains. But selling them is just way to far. I suspect Vive will benefit from this
