OSVR, the open source alternative to the Oculus Rift, is now available for pre-order from Razer for $300.

“The current stock we have is being shipped to areas in the US and the EU,” the company announced on its forums yesterday. “Countries in Asia Pacific will follow soon.”

According to Maximum PC, the first batch of 10,000 development kits have been sold out already.

“Pre-order for the next batch of units is now available as production is stepped up to make more units available to meet demand,” Razer said.
