The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset will go on sale sometime in the first quarter of 2016 for Windows PCs, but so far Oculus has not nailed down a price tag for the device. Now, the founder of the company, Palmer Luckey, has revealed the price of the Oculus Rift headset will be somewhere above $350.
The site Road to VR chatted with Luckey during the recent Oculus Connect conference, and asked him if the Oculus Rift would be priced around $350. He stated:
"You know, I'm going to be perfectly honest with you. We're roughly in that ballpark… but it's going to cost more than that. And the reason for that is that we've added a lot of technology to this thing beyond what existed in the DK1 and DK2 days."
He added that while Oculus is going to cut the cost down as much as they can, they still don't want to compromise when it comes to the quality of the headset:
"I can't tell you that it's going to be $350, and I would say I think people are going to be happy with what they get for the price because I really do think it's going to be that best VR headset you can buy."
