How to snag Oculus Rift at retail with Amazon, Microsoft and Best Buy

Starting tomorrow, May 6th 9 AM PST you'll be able to purchase a new Oculus Rift headset from Amazon and Microsoft. On Saturday, you'll be able to buy from Best Buy. Competition will be fierce for one of these babies, but follow these steps to increase your chances:

  1. Be alive, being dead means you cannot order an Oculus Rift
  2. Own a computer and not a Commodore VIC-20 from the 80s

  3. Have a fast internet connection
  4. Keyboard with an F5 button
  5. Open two browser windows and tile them side by side on your screen
  6. In one browser go to the Amazon Oculus Rift Order page
    Ensure you have 1-click ordering enabled
  7. In the second browser, since there is not yet an Oculus Rift page on the Microsoft store, I recommend performing a search: Search Microsoft Store for Oculus Rift
  8. Make sure your computer time is accurate. Set to World Time
  9. Make sure you know the time difference between where you are and Pacific Time in the US
  10. Starting at 8:58 PST. Press either F5 OR Ctrl + R Key to refresh each page
  11. Repeat this like a masturbating gerbil until the product is available
  12. Use 1-click purchase on Amazon or Add to Cart in the Microsoft store and complete the purchase like your life depended on it
  13. Either revel in your glee that you just snagged one of the five Oculus Rift devices available at retail or start drinking, and drink heavily. It is happy hour somewhere in the world. May I recommend an excellent Single Malt Scotch:

  14. Enjoy Drinking
  15. Suffer the consequences:
