Home » Buy Oculus Rift from the Microsoft Store and Amazon starting from May 6th

VR fans will be able to buy an Oculus Rift from the Microsoft Store and other stores starting from May 6th. As far as Microsoft’s Store is concerned, you can buy this VR device only from the online store and not from physical stores.

One day later, the Oculus Rift will also be launched in Best Buy Stores. However, according to the manufacturer, supply for Oculus Rift is limited, therefore, you’d better buy one on May 6th if you don’t want an unpleasant surprise.

A small number of Rifts will be available for purchase at select Best Buy stores starting May 7 and online from Microsoft and Amazon, starting May 6 at 9am PST. Quantities will be extremely limited while we catch up on Rift pre-orders.

If you have already pre-ordered the Oculus Rift but you end up changing your mind and decide to buy from Microsoft’s online store or any other stores instead, you can cancel your pre-order after you buy the device. All you have to do is contact Oculus and ask them to cancel your pre-order.

The company has also confirmed that later this summer it will start offering even more in-store Rift demos at additional Best Buy locations. In this manner, you’ll have the chance to try out the VR experience that Oculus Rift brings.

For many, this is a first chance to jump into truly immersive VR. We’ll have a variety of experiences that everyone can enjoy, including VR vignettes with Oculus Dreamdeck. Ultimate thrill seekers will be able to experience what it’s like rock climbing on the side of a cliff with The Climb, and in the coming weeks, you’ll be able to explore the beautiful alien world of Farlands.

If you want to try out Oculus Rift, you can schedule a demo at Best Buy locations up to a month in advance via the Oculus Live service. As far as competition is concerned, you can also test out HCT Vive at selected Microsoft Stores.

Are you ready to immerse yourself into the VR world? You could start with Eve: Valkyrie, a multiplayer dog-fighting shooter game. This game is using the virtual reality headset technology and it was already released especially for the Oculus Rift.
