If you want to get yourself an Oculus Rift, but you don't have a proper Gaming PC yet, it's going to cost you. A lot. Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe stated that the Oculus Rift plus a PC that can run it will cost you about $1,500, or almost £1,000.

The company announced that the Oculus Rift will launch early 2016 earlier this month, but the price of the Rift hasn't been revealed yet.

“We are looking at an all-in price, if you have to go out and actually need to buy a new computer and you’re going to buy the Rift at most you should be in that $1,500 range,” said Iribe during the Code Conference in Rancho Palos. Code Conference is a trade show bt Re/code. He also stated that he'd like to see the price go down to under $1,000, or £650.

Are you going to get an Oculus Rift? Is so, you better get saving!

I personally don't see that being unreasonable given the type of people (us) that are likely to be among the first to buy into the oculus.

I would say a fair few of us here have kit that equates to at least a grand at the time of purchaseQuote

I agree with WillSK.

Most people on Overclock3d as well as other sites have a pc that will run this or have spent in the upwards of a few grand to build the pc they wanted.

My plan is to still purchase one, I als think this will have an effect on those gamers that are not Enthusiast and maybe bring them into our world a bit more.Quote

I agree. Though it might put off console peasants interested in the Oculus Rift. Oh well

Aye, system requirements stated a 290x or Nvidia with a 4690k or AMD equivalent I believe, so that explains the high(-ish) cost.Quote
