Oculus Rift ‘All In’ Price Should Be In The $1500 Range

That includes a new PC, and the headset itself.

Whereas the Oculus Rift itself is expected to be in the range of around $500, there is the consideration of demanding specs- simply put, the Oculus Rift requires a beefy PC, and your rig may not be able to support it. Speaking at the annual Code Conference this week,Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe said that the Oculus Rift VR headset will run customers around the $1,500 mark if they purchase a new (decently powerful enough) PC alongside of it. This price, he said, was the ‘all in’ price.

“We are looking at an all-in price, if you have to go out and buy a new computer and you’re going to buy the Rift,” he said via Recode. “At most you should be in that $1,500 range.”

Given that we don’t have an official price for the VR headset yet, this figure should let us come up with a decent range for how much it will cost- and based on your estimates for the price of the PC, it could be anywhere from $500 to $700.

Oculus Rift launches in early 2016. Stay tuned for more coverage.

    I estimate that the combined price for a PS4 and Morpheus is around half, 600-700.

    Well, at least it won’t be a poor man’s knock-off experience like with the Morpheus.

      Guest…..just go away,Morpheus is a nice piece of kit from my understanding.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      720P Display planes once subdivided
      Only 920 GFLOPS and 800Mhz per core available for games
      60FPS Maximum and interpolates frames for 120Hz which will lead to nausea in fast moving games as those need a native framerate above 60FPS to work

      Your understanding is full of peasantry as usual.
