After revealing the initial price point, the company has also started taking pre-orders for its VR headset.
After making consumers wait for so long, Oculus has finally revealed the price of its upcoming virtual reality device, which will sell for $599. A price point like this was very much on the cards taking into consideration the amount of time and resources the company put into creating these machines.
For this price, you will be getting your hands on the VR headset, a sensor, cables, Oculus Remote, Xbox One wireless controller, and a couple of games. The Oculus Touch controllers aren’t included in the package, and are set to launch in the second half of 2016.
If you’re amongst the people who think that $600 price point is too high, then you better drop the idea of getting it because just to run Oculus Rift, you will need a relatively high-end PC, which can cost around $500 to $1000.
Oculus has provided a solution for that, but it’s not exactly cheap either. For $1500, you will be able to get Rift VR device along with a high-end PC capable of running it. If money isn’t an issue, then you should opt for the $1500 option which will open up for pre-orders next month.
This highly anticipated VR headset will finally see the light of day on March 28th.
