Here's where you can pre-order the Oculus Rift on Wednesday morning

The Oculus Rift will open for pre-orders on Wednesday morning, the company has announced.

The hyped virtual reality headset, built by Facebook-owned Oculus, will become available at 8AM Pacific Time on January 6.

You’ll be able to make pre-orders at the company’s official website,

There’s still no word on how much the headset will actually cost. Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus, is doing an AMA (a type of public question-and-answer session) on Reddit, at 6PM — which may help to shed some more light.

People who pre-order Oculus Rift will get a free copy of space game “EVE: Valkyrie,” the company says, along with “Lucky’s Tale,” which will come bundled with all headsets.

The Rift isn’t a standalone device — a compatible computer is also required to use it. Less than 1% of all computers in the world are able to run virtual reality, according to Nvidia.
