The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset is finally available to buy in the UK, and is can be purchased from Amazon, John Lewis, Currys PC World, Game and Harrods for £549. Certain stores have set up demo models, so if you have never experienced VR before you can now easily take a look.

The only downside is that the Oculus Touch is not yet available with the headset, so users have to use an XBox One controller instead (which comes free with the headset).

It's a tired cliche, but when it comes to VR -- seeing really is believing. These sessions could incentivise purchases and, by extension, increase software sales on the Oculus Store. That in turn would attract more developers, giving the Rift more utility and value. To succeed, however, Oculus needs to outmuscle some of its competition; namely HTC and soon, Sony with its PlayStation VR headset.
