The Final retail version of Oculus Rift  will be given to the original backers for free, which means that the company will be giving away almost 7,000 free Oculus Rifts. 

The Final version will only be given to those who pledged enough in order to get the Oculus Rift development kit. Oculus will be sending a survey before February 1st and will be able to deliver to any of the 20 countries that the Oculus Rift will be released in, though they are "working on an alternative" for those who live outside these countries. 

 

       Friends,

On August 1, 2012, we launched a Kickstarter campaign to seed the development of a groundbreaking virtual reality headset – Oculus Rift.

Tomorrow, we'll be opening Rift pre-orders on Oculus.com. This is a major milestone on the path to putting great VR in the hands of millions.

You’re going to experience thrilling adventures in Lucky’s Tale and Edge of Nowhere, feel your heart race as you scale mountains in The Climb, and become a rockstar in Rockband VR. You’ll create and share something magical in Oculus Medium and participate in the ultimate space dogfighting in EVE: Valkyrie. As one of the early supporters of Oculus, you helped make this revolution happen. And before we open Rift pre-orders to the world, we wanted to share one more special update with you, our Kickstarter community.

As a small token of our appreciation for your support, all Kickstarter backers who pledged for a Rift development kit will get a free Kickstarter Edition Oculus Rift! And like all Rift pre-order purchasers, you’ll receive a bundled copy of Lucky’s Tale and EVE: Valkyrie.

To claim your free Rift, fill out the survey you’ll receive from Kickstarter before February 1, 2016 and provide a shipping address that is located in one of the 20 countries Rift is launching in. For those who don’t live in one of those 20 countries, we’re working on an alternative, and you can let us know your preference in the form.

You were there at the beginning of our journey -- we couldn’t have done it without you. Today marks a new chapter.

Right now we do not know the pricing of the Oculus Rift will be and at the moment HTC is teasing a "Game Changing" upgrade they they have delayed the HTC Vive in order to implement, so right now I would not recommend Pre-Ordering the hardware, especially since we do not know exactly how many game will be compatible with the Oculus Rift at Launch.

 

You can join the discussion on the Oculus Rift coming free to the original dev kit backers on the OC3D Forums.
