Breaking down the numbers, Oculus sold 60,000 units of the original DK1 model and 25,000 units of the DK2 model. The latter model’s pre-order page went live on March 19, so that’s 25,000 pre-ordered units confirmed within 27 days.
The fast pre-order sales number for the DK2 is likely attributed to the news of Facebook backing up Oculus, thus equating to high expectations and better position for developer sales success with VR.
Developers and VR aficionados will get their hands on the DK2 version this July. Right now, they can pony up US$350 for the kit. Do keep in mind that the dev kit is just a preview before the real consumer version; there hasn’t been any word on that from Oculus as of yet.
