In case some of you forgot, Oculus Rift officially releases to the world this coming Monday, March 28. Where does the time go? It’ll be just on the heels of Valve’s HTC Vive, which releases the following week on April 5, with PSVR being a little farther off, set to release sometime in October of this year.
To prepare everybody’s own personal hype trains, and to confirm the pre-order process, Oculus VR CEO Brendan Iribe confirmed on his Twitter that the very first Oculus Rift has been shipped, and that deliveries will begin this Monday. Included is a picture of the boxed Oculus Rift.

For those of you who pre-ordered the Rift, the box contains the famous headset itself (complete with built in headphones and mic), a sensor, an Oculus Remote, and an Xbox One controller, which will be compatible with a fair number of Oculus titles. You will also gain access to two launch games for pre-ordering: Lucky’s Tale and EVE: Valkyrie, with plenty more titles to come down the road.
