Update: Facebook has informed us that Amazon accidentally launched pre-orders. Pre-orders for the Oculus Quest helmet has not started. The device has been removed from Amazon’s virtual shelves. However, Facebook reported that the price of £ 499 (US $ 499) for the 128GB model is correct.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE BEFORE UPDATE:
Live in the UK and want to get an oculus quest? Pre-orders for the 128 GB model are already available directly on Amazon UK.
Oculus Quest still has no confirmed release date, but signs seem to point to the annual Facebook conference at the end of this month. This means that you have to wait another 2 weeks.
This is a list from Amazon itself, not from a random seller. It is unclear whether this was a mistake on the part of Amazon, but we were able to add the product to the cart and completely pre-order it. Amazon, as a rule, is good at respecting mistakes, if that’s the case. We will be interested to see how they deal with this matter.
The base model Oculus Quest has a memory capacity of 64 GB and cost $ 399 / £ 399. Last month, Facebook confirmed to us that the 128GB model would also be sold in the public domain, but the price was still unknown. She is likely to be $ 499 in the United States.
Unfortunately, neither Go nor Quest has an SD card slot, so you are stuck with the storage you are buying. Facebook is working on the possibility of using a USB drive, but the release date of this feature has not yet been determined.
The page also displays the full contents of the bundle. We have seen a review of content in the past, but never a complete list:
- 1 x Quest,
- 1 x controllers (L and R),
- 1 x Printed Folio Accessory,
- 1 x user manual
- 2 x AA batteries,
- 1 x charging cable,
- 1 x glass lenses
- 1 x welcome card,
- 1 x charger (US, UK, EU, AU).
VRcue will continue to keep you informed of further developments.
