Oculus are hoping to bring more customers over to the Rift this June, with a three-figure bonus to anyone willing to invest in their latest gadgets. Oculus announced the UK deals on their Oculus UK Facebook page, telling customers looking to buy an Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) and Oculus Touch motion controllers that they will be rewarded with £100 GBP or $100 USD to spend on the Oculus Store – not a bad deal.
Mainstream adoption of dedicated virtual reality (VR) devices is good so far, but not as high as HMD producers like Oculus and HTC would like it to be. Oculus are clearly hoping that a big voucher for a few games on their store will entice customers on the fence to take the plunge.
Eagle-eyed consumers will spot a few other bonuses available from those retailers too – GAME are offering a further three free games to sweeten the deal; Lucky’s Tale, Dragon Front and Toy Box. Scan Computers UK are also offering the space dogfighter EVE: Valkyrie.
Amazon US’ product page specifies how customers will get their store credit; “We will send you a promotional code with redemption instructions via email within two days of your order shipping.”
If you’ve got a VR ready PC and have been on the fence about VR, this might be the perfect time to take the plunge into the virtual world.
