The price of quality virtual reality headsets continues to drop. As part of its Oculus Connect event today, Oculus announced that the Rift’s price has been cut to $399/£399.
This new price is in effect today–you can head over to the Oculus store right now and add it to your cart for that price. $399/£399 gets you the headset itself, two sensors, two Touch controllers, and seven free games for setting everything up: Lucky’s Tale, Medium, Toybox, Quill, Dead and Buried, Dragon Front, and Robo Recall.
Following a price cut for the bundle earlier this year, this move drops the price by another $100. That further distances it from the price of the HTC Vive, which was cut to $599 back in August. It also brings the Rift in line with the cheapest PlayStation VR bundle, which goes for $400 following a recent change.
Of course, this still may not be the option you’re looking for. The Rift requires a PC, but Oculus also today revealed a pair of new VR headsets, including a standalone one that’s priced at only $200. We’ll report back as more details are shared.
In May, the Rift’s feature set expanded to include full room-scale capability and improve tracking for setups with three sensors, which is a requirement for room-scale VR. The $399 bundle comes with two sensors; additional sensors are currently available for $60/£60.
