The Oculus Rift is now Available for Pre-Order - Price Announced

 

It has finally happened, the Oculus Rift is Available for Pre-Order, announcing the price of VR headset and letting us know what will be bundles with the retail version of the device.  

The Oculus Rift will cost $599.99,€699.99 or £499.99, which we think is quite a reasonable price for the Rift considering the PC requirements, but certainly a lot more than we were expecting. This will not include shipping, but the shipping costs will vary depending on your region. 

 

     As a reminder, every Rift comes bundled with Lucky’s Tale by Playful, and we’re also including CCP’s EVE: Valkyrie for free with every pre-order!

699€, my PC can support it according to their compatability site but no way I will pay that much for it.

What does the kickstarter pay for? I assumed it would have been cheaper because of the kickstarter money, maybe I don't understand the concept of kickstarter enough.Quote

We really need to know what the Vive's price is now. It better be lower and if it is Oculus has lost.

Oculus lack the new "view the real world" feature the Vive has, so if the Vive has a lower price Oculus will lose a lot of orders.Quote

Dude, this is totally Blu Ray VS DVDHD, or VHS VS Betamax. Either way early adopters are going to get nailed.

I'm leaving this crap at least a year until it's all settled and done.

At least I know my rig can pretty much mangle it.Quote
