TO­KEN OF AP­PRE­CI­A­TION

Ocu­lus Re­wards Ini­tial Back­ers with Spe­cial ‘Kick­starter Edi­tion’ Ocu­lus Rift

HWM (Malaysia) - - GAX -

Ocu­lus has def­i­nitely come a long way since it launched the Kick­starter fund for the Ocu­lus Rift VR head­set in 2012, a time when peo­ple were still mighty du­bi­ous about the whole con­cept of vir­tual re­al­ity.

But de­spite the odds (and ap­pre­hen­sion) that were stacked against them, Ocu­lus man­aged to se­cure enough funds from the com­mu­nity to be­gin de­vel­op­ment of the Ocu­lus Rift, which, af­ter four long years, is fi­nally ready for prime­time.

Ocu­lus isn’t one to ca­su­ally for­get the back­ers who have in­vested and sup­ported them through­out their jour­ney, which is why they’re re­ward­ing them with a gift that’s un­like any other: a ‘Kick­starter Edi­tion’ Ocu­lus Rift.

Un­for­tu­nately, not all back­ers are en­ti­tled to re­ceive the ‘Kick­starter Edi­tion’ Ocu­lus Rift, as it will only be given to those who have pledged enough for an Ocu­lus Rift de­vel­op­ment kit, which was go­ing for US$275 (ap­prox. RM1,210) back when the Kick­starter cam­paign was still on­go­ing. Bun­dled to­gether with the ‘Kick­starter Edi­tion’ Ocu­lus Rift are two Ocu­lus-ready games: the 3D plat­former, Lucky’s Tale, and the mul­ti­player lti­player dog­fight game that’s set in outer space,ace, EVE: Valkyrie.

Ocu­lus be­gan tak­ing pre-or­ders for the Ocu­lusu­lus Rift through its of­fi­cial web­site lastt month, which by the way, hap­pens to be priced at an eye-wa­ter­ing US$599 (ap­prox. prox. RM2,652). You’ll get the same two afore­men­tioned games for free when you pre­order one, but even if you had the cash to spend, Malaysia is un­for­tu­nately not amongst the list of 20 coun­tries that Ocu­lus will be ship­ping the Rift to. If you’re adamant enough, howev how­ever, you can al­ways take the risk and opt to use a freight for­ward­ing ser­vice to get t the job done in­stead.
