New technologies often arrive in September and for many VR enthusiasts and gamers in the United Kingdom, the Oculus Rift VR is officially available by September.
By September 20 2016, the Facebook-owned company would bring its product to UK retailers. The product would pitch in at £550 a set.
The stores may offer online and door-to-door deliveries, which often take months or can get it off the shelves in retail.
Amazon.co.uk, John Lewis, Curry’s PC World, GAME and even department stores such as Harrods would be stocking these units.
If you’re not yet about to purchase, you could head to a nearby shop or centre where you could experience the Oculus Rift VR experience such as Crytek’s the Climb or a narrative such as the Elijah Wood-narrated VR film Henry
If you are to buy an Oculus Rift, you have to have a VR-ready computer.
You’ll need a minimum of an Intel i5-4590 (so a mid-2014 chip), 8GB of RAM, three USB 3 and at least one USB 2 port, Windows 7 SP1 64 bit or newer and an Nvidia GTX 970 or AMD R9 290 graphics card.
For Mac users, the bad news is that there is no use of a support for Rift just yet. But developer kits are working on a Mac version to date.
