Oculus Rift and its Touch controllers are cheaper than ever.
Oculus Rift’s Touch controllers solely launched in December however they’ve already seen a second main value reduce.
After dropping the price of the Rift headset and Touch controller bundle to $600 in March, Oculus has introduced it’s completely decreasing the price of the bundle to $500.
That’s a tasty low cost on what early adopters paid for the ; the Touch controllers were $200 at launch in December 2016, and the Oculus Rift was $600 in March 2016.
If you’re considering of getting onboard now that the worth has come down, it can save you much more by getting in earlier than the top of the Summer of Rift promotion; proper now, you’re looking at around $400 for the headset and controllers relying on delivery prices.
Even after the sale ends and the bundle goes again as much as $500, the Oculus Rift is way more reasonably priced than the HTC Vive and controller bundle at a whopping $800, and never way more costly than the $400 PlayStationVR – though a great PC to run the Rift will price you a hefty sum, after all.
Let’s all hope the lowering price ticket on the Oculus Rift is a results of targets met and income secured, moderately than desperation to shift inventory. The larger price ticket paid by early adopters could possibly be thought of an funding in VR – however provided that the tech succeeds and pays again that costly religion.
