The Oculus Rift, the much awaited VR headset has started to ship according to their CEO Brendan Iribe's tweet. While this is certainly good news for early adopters who were able to pre-order the headset earlier this year. For those who missed out on the pre-orders, you'll have to wait until July when itís expected to go on sale. As a quick recap, the Oculus Rift had gone on pre-order at $599 each back in early January, after facing multiple delays and postponements along the way.

The Oculus Rift is the 2nd most expensive VR headset after the HTC Vive, which went on pre-order last month priced at $799. The PlayStation VR from Sony, which recently went on pre-order, is by far the least expensive of the lot with a price of just $399 for the core bundle and $499 for the enhanced launch bundle that includes 2 motion controllers and other assorted accessories.

So any of you pre-order an Oculus Rift? Or any of you planning on getting one once it goes on sale in July?
