At last: Oculus Rift is coming to the UK next month

The Oculus Rift is coming to the UK, and will be available in stores from September 20.

Currently, UK folks have to order the headset online which involves additional shipping costs - not to mention wait times.

But from September 20, the Rift will be available to buy in UK shops including Game, Amazon, John Lewis, Curry's PC World and Harrods.

Stores around the country will also be offering demos, for anyone who wants to try before they buy.

What's the price?

The headset has been given a UK RRP of £549 for September, which, given that it currently costs £499 before shipping, does make us wonder why there's been a slight mark-up.

We've asked Oculus for comment, however it's possible that Brexit has caused a small adjustment. The headset's US cost of $599 converted to £410 at launch, but £461 right now. Brexit caused a price push for the HTC Vive too.

Oculus also said that it will be offering demos of its Touch controllers in stores globally this October.
