Facebook’s Oculus Rift VR headset as of now got one slash in the price back in March this year. Presently it is offering one more. As a feature of the “Summer of Rift” deals advancement Oculus is having, the VR headset and a couple of Touch controllers are down to a joined $399, a $200 drop (in the UK, it’s down to £399). That undermines the HTC Vive, and matches the passage level cost of the controller-less PlayStation VR headset. That value drop is brief for the following a month and a half, as indicated by Oculus.
Alongside the $200 drop of the package in March, this makes at a consolidated $400 cost slice in 2017 for Oculus’ 2016 equipment. The Rift and Touch have a phenomenal gathering of programming, yet you’ll require a good PC, and perhaps a third sensor for ideal room-scale VR. Furthermore, with Oculus’ next enormous meeting drawing nearer in the fall, it’s a little vague whether new equipment is not too far off. In any case, it’s an extraordinary cost for what remains a four-star VR stage.
Oculus VP of Content Jason Rubin said he sees the new package cost as a mysterious value point, however, wouldn’t remark on whether there could be other value drops later on. The Oculus Rift’s deals in 2017, in light of reports, indicate it at the base of the VR equipment race. Then, PlayStation VR has been at the highest point of the non-portable VR deals with a million sold.
Rubin says that Oculus is as yet content with its circumstance.”We knew launching VR into the mass market would take time. It’s a question of price and content. We knew there was a chicken and egg problem. We applied into a 250 million investment into content. We’ve got the chicken, now we can push towards the egg.”
