So how well is the second development kit of the Oculus Rift selling? Talking with Tech Crunch, the people at Oculus have revealed that about 25,000 units have been sold so far.
Pre-orders started on March 19th. The new kit has a 1080P OLED screen, low persistence feature, and motion tracking just to name a few. The kit sells for $350, a $50 premium over the previous kit.
In case you were wondering, the first development kit sold about 60,000 units during its availability. Sales of the original dev kit were halted when parts went out of production. With the Facebook acquisition, it sounds like Oculus can now build their own parts that can suit their needs more.
Those who have pre-ordered the second dev kit, like me, can expect it to be shipped in July. Let's hope that this one comes through on time, unlike the first dev kit, which was delayed a bit.
