The long awaited first entry into the future of VR gaming is coming this March in the form of the Oculus Rift VR headset. Preorders went live yesterday afternoon during CES and the official price was announced at $599 in North America. The Rift comes with the actual headset, senor, two games (EVE: Valkyrie and Lucky’s Tale) cables and an Xbox One controller with a wireless USB adapter. Many consumers have ran to social media to complain about the high price of the Rift and are wondering what plans Sony has with pricing their similar headset, Playstation VR, later this year. If you’re interested, please be aware that a fairly beefy gaming PC is required in order to use the Rift, which can set you back around $1000 or more. The Oculus Rift seems to be a pretty pricey gaming setup that most likely will not hit a mainstream audience until the prices drop drastically.
Preorders are still live but the first wave of shipments are already sold out, pushing the date back to June. You can preorder a Rift headset here.
