Most people want to try things before they buy them. Oculus Rift is a pretty big purchase to order without ever trying it out. Come to think of it, do you know anyone that has actually tried one? You could be that person. All you have to do is drop by your local Best buy this weekend. Starting May 7 Best Buy stores all over the country are offering demos of the VR headset. Keep in mind it’s not all Best Buy stores. It will be just 48 of them. You will be able to play with demos of ‘The Climb’ and ‘Farlands.’
Seeing is believing
Rift uses state of the art displays and optics designed specifically for VR. Its high refresh rate and low-persistence display work together with its custom optics system to provide incredible visual fidelity and an immersive, wide field of view.
Oculus is letting anyone that wants to try it out schedule demo sessions up to a month in advance at live.oculus.com After you try out the Oculus you will be able to buy a unit as well. This is a very big deal because the Oculus has had shipping issues. Keep in mind that Best Buy already said that supplies are “extremely limited.” However Amazon and Microsoft will start selling the Rift on May 6 at 12PM ET.
