It wasn't that long ago that Oculus was being sold to curious developers for the purpose of experimenting with virtual reality. After being purchased by Facebook in 2014, the company has pushed forward, eyeing the crown for virtual entertainment. As the Oculus Rift headset approaches its one year anniversary, Facebook is pulling its retail experience demo kiosk from Best Buy locations across the United States.
According to the folks at Business Insider, Facebook is discontinuing the 'Oculus Live' experience at nearly 200 Best Buy stores. Oculus Live is a specialized demo kiosk that allows those curious to experience virtual reality. The kiosk offers a specially trained representative to show off the capabilities of the Rift headset and its Touch controllers. Although Facebook has pulled the program from quite a few stores, you can still schedule a demo of the Rift headset, if you live in an area that still offers the experience.
The Oculus Rift can be purchased for $599.99, but if you are looking to get the most from the experience, you'll want to opt for the Touch controller bundle for $799.99.
