The Oculus Rift will reach UK Retailers next month and will cost £549.99, which is £50 higher than the Oculus Store's current £499.99 price tag (not including shipping costs). 

This means that when the Oculus Rift hits UK retailers the headset will effectively be getting a 10% price increase, mirroring the actions of HTC's Vive VR headset and PC makers like ASUS, Lenovo, HP and Dell in order to account recent currency fluctuations. 

At this time we know that the HTC Vive will be coming to John Lewis, Currys/PC World, GAME and Harrods, with Demo Units being available to use in select retail stores. The VR headset will come free with an Xbox One controller and a copy of Lucky's Tale.

While the Oculus Rift does seem like a bargain when compared to HTC's Vive Headset it is worth noting that the Oculus Rift does not offer a "full room VR experience", lacks the HTC Vive's chaperone system and lacks motion controllers. At this time it is unknown when the Oculus Touch controllers will release and what price they will release at.
