Developers And Industry People React To Oculus Rift’s High Price Point
Several developers and industry people react to the tech’s high price point.
The VR headset Oculus Rift will cost you a whopping $599 if you plan to buy one this April. The headset will ship with a sensor, a remote and an Xbox One controller. It’s expected that early adopters will be pre-ordering as soon as they can but the same cannot be said for everyone.
Several people from the games industry have reacted to the price point of Oculus Rift. You can check them out below. Personally speaking, this isn’t a good price point for the tech. The headset will probably fly off the shelves on launch but most people will wait for a price drop. I mean the tech is almost double the price of the PS4 and requires a fairly decent PC configuration to run games.
But what are your thoughts on the price tag? Let us know in the comments section below and stay tuned for more information on Oculus Rift.
