Oculus Rift and Touch Bundle Drops to $400 For Summer Sale

Oculus Rift price sliced to $399, making it console-price for the rest of us

The "Rift + Touch Bundle" will be available there for £400. However, the latest discounted bundle seems like a steal with its included Oculus Rift headset and official controllers together with all the accessories to run it out-of-the-box. Naturally, the biggest danger to this deal, and any other computer related is the fact that in order to get a VR capable system, you'll have to resort to a branded system as prices of GPUs on the open market are insane due to cryptocurrency bubble.

With the latest price cut, the Oculus Rift and Touch bundle is the most affordable VR headset offer now available on the market, at least in terms of high-end options.

Just past year, the Oculus was being sold for $600, which rose to $800 overall when you added the cost of its $200 Touch controllers (in my opinion, the Rift is only truly worth it when you use Touch).

After permanently dropping from a bundle price of $798 to $598 back in March, the Oculus Rift + Touch combo goes for an even crazier $399 total for the next six weeks.

This is the second time, Oculus is getting a significant discount.

The VR unit also suffered a big legal setback in February, when video game publisher ZeniMax Media Inc successfully sued Oculus for copyright infringement, winning a $500 million legal judgement.

Facebook's almost $2 billion acquisition of Oculus three years ago was a flier on virtual reality's potential. If you've already got a Rift headset, then, there isn't much in this sale for you. You can pick up the pair of them for just $399/£399.

A signal for new hardware?

"Summer of Rift is all about celebrating the VR community and encouraging new people to get in the game", the company said in its announcement.

Facebook kicked off the tech industry's push into VR with its purchase of Oculus for $2 billion in 2014.
