Oculus Rift Price Revealed January 8, 2016Posted by Maniac in Game News.
The headset poised to bring Virtual Reality into the mainstream now has a price, and it is very steep. The Oculus Rift, a PC-enabled wireless VR headset, will launch later this year at a price of $599 US. That puts it at the same price point as a premium launch model PlayStation 3 back in 2006.
The Oculus Rift package will include everything you need to get VR working on your PC including the VR headset, an Xbox One Controller, and various custom cables for the headset. The package will also include two free games including the highly anticipated launch game EVE Valkrie.
If you would like to order the Oculus Rift, you can place a preorder for it right here. Just be aware that as of this time, you may have to wait until June before your headset arrives.
If you had participated in the product’s Kickstarter and previously received Oculus Rift headsets due to the amount you donated to the company, don’t order one online! Kickstarter supporters can expect a final retail unit coming to your home at no extra charge. The Kickstarter version will include everything offered in the retail package.
Just be aware that the Oculus Rift will require support from a pretty powerful gaming PC to function properly. If you’re unsure if your PC will work with the Oculus Rift download the Windows app from the Oculus website.
