Oculus Rift development kit backers will receive free retail version of the headset
In an update on its Kickstarter page, Oculus has announced that the company will be giving backers of the Rift development kit a free retail version of the Oculus Rift. It will be a Kickstarter Edition version, but will also come with the other promised free goodies. Backers will receive EVE: Valkyrie and Lucky's Tale bundled with their special edition Rift headset. The update reads:
To claim your free Rift, you'll need to complete a survey that will be sent out by Kickstarter. You'll need to complete it with all of your information, including a shipping address before February 1, 2016 to get your free unit. Right now, you'll need to live in one of the 20 launch countries, but if you don't you can still claim for it, and Oculus is working on additional shipping options.
This is a pretty nice gesture from the Oculus team. Did you back the initial Rift development kit? If so, how excited are you to receive a retail version of the headset for free?
