Oculus Rift.. $599 US - Ships in March.. UDPATE: Now MAY

Forums - PC Discussion - Oculus Rift.. $599 US - Ships in March.. UDPATE: Now MAY

This is like them giveing up before hand.
PS VR is going to take up like 80% of the VR market.

At a 599$ price point this will never become a huge success story for them.
Oculus Rift lose the early adoption rate race.

I can't wait to try VR for the first time. In five years. Like many technologies, right now it's pretty much just for those with a lot of income or just a serious love for what's new.

I hope that Sony acts in this situation as agressive as they have been with the "Console War", cutting throats left and right.

Sony cant have mercy with the Oculus Rift! The price is the fist step in this battle.

They have the advantage of being the last to announce the price.

It is all in your hands Kaz.



Good for them that they sold out so fast. But how many did they sell?
It sounds like the day one stock was VERY limited if they were able to sell out in under 14 minutes at that price.
I wonder if they are producing 10k, 100k or more every month.



Don't copy random editorials.

That's... expensive, wonder how much the Morpheus will cost then

Also this:

"Oculus has announced that backers of their 2012 Rift DK1 Kickstarter campaign will receive a limited edition version of Oculus Rift consumer for free."

They have compromised several units beforehand, then they have to care about the people pre-ordering this stuff.

Remember that Oculus Rift started as a Kickstart, the PSVR was all R&D by Sony.

Truly a great question Platina-San. I am also wondering this very same question. Hopefully not exceeding $600. Hopefully $400 at best.

Sony be like:

Seriously PS VR with rumored 299$ price point will slaughter the Oculus Rift in sales.




Does anybody pay attention anymore? Too high an entry cost

I didn't expect it to be cheap but that price is ridiculous. Ill let early adopters take the fall while the rest of us wait for revisions and sensible pricing.



I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine
