We’ve reached peak summer, and what better way to celebrate it than saving almost $200 on one of the best VR headsets in the market right now? What began as a Kickstarter campaign a few years ago has received mostly positive reviews since its launch last March. Oculus had already lowered the price of the Rift + Touch controllers bundle to $599 a few months ago, and for the next six weeks, it’ll be even more affordable at $399.
Oculus officially announced the Summer of Rift promotion last month with lucrative discounts on select games and $100 store credit for new buyers. The celebration continues, and for a limited time – the remaining six weeks of this summer, to be precise – you can buy the Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch controllers for $399. In other words, the Rift is now on par with Sony’s PlayStation VR in terms of pricing and significantly undercuts the HTC Vive.
The Oculus Rift isn’t a perfect VR device by any means, but as the list of supported games grows and especially with the new price tag, this might be a hard bargain to pass up on.
