Oculus Rift S - taking Pre-Orders at Overclockers.co.uk - Free Delivery - £398.99

Posted 14th May
Hopefully this may help someone (it did me). No Rift S units seem to be available at a decent price at the moment but Overclockers.co.uk is taking pre-orders for a quid less than others, and delivery is free. The best thing for me is that if you choose the credit option via Hitachi you can have 12 months interest free to pay it off (£33-ish per month). Of course if you don't pay it off in the 12 months then you would be whacked with a big interest charge, and they do a credit check when you apply, so it's clearly not for everyone.

Does is say by what date? Remember Scan doing something similar and kept delaying them. These are all over eBay and fb marketplace but slowly going down in price. Not sure whether to get this or the quest, don’t fancy rebuying the small library I have on PSVR though.. Heat op
So not only is this site now HotUKRetailDeals but also HotUKPreOrders too
I don't see the point in this with it being a pre-order. Hopefully there will be stock in later on in the year.

I remember pre-orders being on HUKD back when I started using the site in 2011 or 2012 so it's hardly anything new.

It stops being a pre order when an item is released and becomes a back order.
But you’re wasting your breath.
I already posted this, and it was expired because it’s not in stock any more

those who ordered were oversold, and they’ve emailed to say the next stock is arriving end of May / early June, presumably filling back orders first. You’ll end up at the end of a long queue if you order now.
Not sure how a back-order at retail price is a deal..

They are coming in/out of stock fairly regularly but snapped up quick - Just setup alerts @ Stock Informer

I just got the quest and am loving it. Works great with PC VR using an 8m USB2 cable after the update on Thursday. Only downside it is more heavy but I like the fact that you can run this wirelessly on its own, wirelessly with PC games or wired with PC games.

Also Quest was designed by Oculus were us Rift S is more of a place holder (cheaper version) of the original Rift made by Lenovo and Oculus have really abandoned PC only VR headsets. Their new features don't even come out to PC only headsets since Quest was released.

Cheers pal. I’m so torn. I like the idea of it being wireless and seems to be what oculus are shifting to but visually it running off the pc will be so much nicer. Can you play any games on VR or does it have to be specifically compatible? I saw Sensua’s Sacrifice being one, shame I’ve already completed it this would be trippy as!

Honestly it's just detected by everything the same way my Rift was. I played HL Alyx, Pavlov & Beatsaber (and scored better on Expert+ than with Rift somehow). The only downside the comfort. I played for 6 hours yesterday but I had to keep adjusting it because it was too front heavy.

People have had success with mods where they hung some counterweight at the back of the headset and they say that relieves the pressure from the front but I haven't tried it yet.

I just rather be using the headset that is most supported because I hate having hardware that is not a company's flagship. I can only compare it to Rift but am really happy with it and am primarily a PC gamer.

6 hours is unhealthy, don't think it's designed for such sustained use at one go

I'm just bitterly envious

It's absolutely fine. I don't think your body realises after a while that you are in VR and you feel better than if you were watching Netflix on the sofa for 6 hours.
