Oculus is making its flagship VR headset a bit more affordable. The company was offering a temporary price cut for this headset over the summer, discounting it from $499 to $399 for a limited time. The company has now decided to make this price cut permanent. The new Oculus Rift price will prove customers who have been on the fence about this headset an incentive to spend their money on it.
The new Oculus Rift price is $399 and this is permanent now. It’s for the bundle which not only includes the headset but also the Oculus Touch motion controllers, sensors, and six free apps that provides hours of VR content.
The Rift now costs almost half of what it originally did last year. At that point in time, the headset itself cost $599 and the controllers were priced at $199. The entire bundle now costs $399 so it’s a pretty good deal. Do keep in mind that a PC compatible of supporting the headset will be required to power the VR experiences.
This isn’t the only headset-related announcement that Oculus has made at its developer conference today. The company has also unveiled a new standalone headset called Oculus Go. It’s a self-contained headset which will be priced at $199. Oculus is going to release its standalone headset next year.
