With the new year coming close to the end, many VR fans are wondering if Oculus will be announcing pre-orders for the consumer version of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset will finally be made available.
In a recent post on Twitter, when Oculus founder Palmer Luckey was asked if Rift pre-orders could be expected to begin before the Christmas holiday is over, Luckey replied, “Ask for a raincheck!”.
