The Oculus Rift has been priced at $599 in the U.S and £500 in the UK and dated for a March 1 release.
Oculus' VR headset seems quite expensive, especially when you take into consideration that Tax and Shipping is not included, which brings the true cost up to $684/£530 (£30 UK shipping price). For that cost you get a Rift headset, sensor, Oculus remote, an Xbox One Controller, all the required cables, Lucky’s Tale and EVE: Valkyrie.
Remember, the motion controllers are not included and will be available separately for at least £100 upon release.
$599 is the same price that PS3 launched at in the U.S and we all know that went down rather badly.
